Hermes Prologis Park depot opens in Hemel Hempstead Hermes Prologis Park depot opens in Hemel Hempstead

Hermes UK boss, chief executive Martijn De Lange ,

We are extremely proud to officially open our state-of-the-art depot in Hemel Hempstead, which will significantly increase the network capacity in the South East. This project demonstrates our total commitment to environmentally friendly, world-class delivery solutions, not just for today, but for the foreseeable future.

The new green Hermes depot opens pre-peak with 80,000 sq ft at Prologis Park in Hemel Hempstead covering the south east geographic with easy access to M1 and M25.



The depot also features EV charging and an LED system to provide the lighting. The depot, which can process more than 130,000 parcels a day, is located in Hemel Hempstead’s Enviro-tech Enterprise Zone. It has solar thermal hot water to pre-heat water to save gas, a 40kWp design rating photovoltaic array (PV) on the roof, a rainwater harvesting system and even grey water for toilet flushing.

Adding more green to the LED lighting, the building has 15 per cent roof lights to maximise natural light in the warehouse, with additional polycarbonate panels in the south elevation to provide further light.


Black Friday is less than a month away.

Martijn De Lange...

Last year we handled 9.7m parcels during our busiest week of the year and we expect that number to grow significantly in 2018. Our team of experts spend the entire year planning for peak so retailers can enjoy absolute confidence in our ability to comfortably process increased volumes driven by Black Friday, Cyber Monday and the Christmas period.
