Hermes Fulfilment GmbH: From rugs to fully automatic coffee machines – Hermes Fulfilment moves all kinds of goods

Shopping has never been easier. A single click of the mouse button is all it takes to add a flat-screen TV or automatic coffee machine to the virtual shopping cart. In most cases, the articles are delivered to your home on the following day – all thanks to modern e-commerce.

Online shopping involves highly complex logistics processes – and this is where Hermes Fulfilment GmbH comes into play. With its site in Ohrdruf, Hermes Fulfilment operates one of the largest logistics centres in Thuringia. The site specializes in the logistic processing of large items up to a weigh of 31.5 kg, including electrical appliances, rugs, small pieces of furniture and consumer electronics. About six million items pass through the site every year.
