In the "last mile" more than 50 depots in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the Netherlands take over the delivery and all downstream services for furniture and large home appliances. These depots are managed by independent entrepreneurs from the furniture logistics or moving industry. Long-term partnerships, qualified and regularly trained staff and a very low fluctuation form the basis for the high performance and quality level of Hermes 2-man handling.
We assign the 'last mile' of the delivery process, including all subsequent services related to furniture and large-appliance deliveries, to 53 depots across Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the Netherlands. These depots are operated by independent furniture-logistics and moving companies. The excellent performance and quality standards of our Hermes Two-Man Handling service are founded on these long-term partnerships, as well as on a highly qualified, regularly trained staff with a very low rate of turnover.
In 2014 and for the first time, Hermes had its Two-Man Handling depots audited and successfully certified by SGS TÜV Saar, as a key part of an overall CSR strategy. The audit focused on employment conditions, health and safety, public perception, product quality and operating procedures.
