IOC best-dressed individual and team for festive season.

Our sector at its best, front line ambassadors, key workers showcase festive spirit.

At the door and in the sortation shed.

Tracey Worth launched a best-dressed festive express courier sector competition. Response has been amazing, Crown Couriers even baked a cake - not just any cake, a full-on pleated Christmas jumper replica cake. We landed IOC president, Viscount, Lord Falkland with the most difficult job of the year, ‘judge the final mile festive champions.’



DPD Hinckley turned out in force to win best team. Individual winner went to super-cool snowman at Hermes. CitySprint bagged best reindeer. Best Santa went to Yodel sortation Father Christmas. Individual fellow jumper to Jon Bunting at Smiths News. Arrow XL get a mention for festive formal attire -  jacket, tie and trouser match!

Hermes' chief operating officer, Carl Lyon said

It’s not just Santa that’s in charge of delivering presents – we play a huge role too this time of year. What I love most about what we do is the Hermes spirit. Despite the massive volume, our incredible parcel people still manage to bring the festive cheer while ensuring our parcels are safely delivered. Here’s the man himself checking out what goes on in the operation (social distanced of course) We’re pleased to say we’re on the good list – and are working hard to get all the parcels delivered by Christmas.
