EVRI is the UK's largest parcel delivery company – but do you know where you can drop off or pick up your parcel?
With more than 7,000 ParcelShops across the UK, it is now more convenient than ever to organise your deliveries.
In recent years many people have turned to browsing and shopping online rather than taking a trip to the local high street.
This has meant that many high-street retailers have either had to close their doors completely or look to trading online.
While some retailers have struggled with the switch to online others have flourished and delivery companies have had to step up to meet the demand.
If you are an online shopper the chances are that one of your parcels will have been delivered by Evri, or Hermes as it was once known.

Where are Evri depots located?
If you miss a parcel you get up to three delivery attempts and the option to divert your parcel to another location.
Or if it is more convenient you can choose to send or return a parcel at one of the thousands of ParcelShops in the network.
You can even print your postage label at your nearest ParcelShop.
If you don't know where your nearest pick up and drop off point is it is really easy to find out.
You can use the locator tool on the Evri website and enter your postcode to find your nearest ParcelShop.
Alternatively, you can also book a courier to collect the parcel from your home or office.
How to save on online shopping
Shopping expert Paul Morris has revealed his top tips for saving money on your online shopping.
Become a new customer – repeatedly
The money-saving guru points out that the majority of online businesses offer a discount for new customers.
"If you have more than one email address (or create multiple) you can benefit from that discount multiple times," he advises.
Sign up for newsletters
Newsletters are a great way to get a sign-up discount and you can always unsubscribe at any time.
Don't buy it the first time you see it
Paul says: "If you’re registered with a site and you look at the same product 2-3 times, they might email you about it, and sometimes with a discount code of around 5-20% off or even flash sales."
Search for discount codes
A really easy way to find out if a retailer is offering a discount Paul says, is to type in the retailer's name and "discount code" into Google.
