Poundland awards online delivery contract to Hermes

Poundland online shop

Hermes, the consumer delivery specialist, has secured a contract to provide online delivery services to Poundland Group, Europe’s largest single price general merchandise discount retailer. The move comes after Poundland announced the launch of a trial online shopping service earlier this week.

Under the terms of the agreement, Hermes will provide a four to five working day delivery service to all UK-based consumers. The new online store offers over 2,000 products, including a mixture of household brands and Poundland’s unique ranges. The service will have no minimum order value and a flat £4 delivery fee per order will apply. Orders over £50 receive free delivery.

Poundland becomes the latest leading high street name to use Hermes’ extensive portfolio of delivery services and solutions, already utilised by a host of major retailers across the UK.

Jim McCarthy, Poundland’s chief executive, said: “The online shopping market is a rapidly growing channel and one which could provide a significant potential opportunity for us. This trial is an important first step towards giving more customers access to our amazing value. We are delighted to team-up with Hermes to offer this exciting service.”

Mark Pettit, sales & marketing director at Hermes, said: “By utilising our specialist knowledge and experience, we can supply industry-leading delivery solutions that provide exceptional value to any organisation. We look forward to helping Poundland succeed in this new online venture.”
