At this scale ASOS will be paying Hermes about £2.50 per tracked delivery UK wide which includes a base £20 of lost/damaged cover. Even as Joe Public you will get collected tracked and base insured for about £3.99 or drop off from about £2.79. All up to 1Kg.

That’s why they use them. Royal Mail are more expensive and more shit. DPD more expensive, probably less shit.

Hermes are about 99.9% no bother. It’s the 0.1% exception that’s a Fucking pain in the arse. Mostly lost stuff.
