Alternative delivery address

Not at home during the day? Then have your parcel delivered to another address. Your workplace or a neighbour who is home during the day, for example. Simply select the “Delivery to a new address” option, enter the new address and confirm. GLS will immediately reroute the parcel.

Grant permission to drop off parcel elsewhere

Granting permission for drop-off frees you entirely from delivery times and opening times. Simply select the drop-off point around your home that you want, such as the patio, and your parcel will be left there for you. A signature to confirm receipt is then no longer necessary.

Drop-off permission cannot be granted if the sender of your delivery has ordered one of the following services:

  • Exchanging articles (ExchangeService)
  • Cash on delivery: Payment of goods upon delivery (CashService)
  • Collection of goods from yourself (Pick&ReturnService or Pick&ShipService)

One-off permission to drop off parcel

Via the link in the email, you can grant GLS permission to drop off this parcel. Simply select the “Grant drop-off permission” option, enter the desired drop-off location as precisely as possible and confirm. GLS will drop off the parcel there.

Long-term permission to drop off parcels

You can also grant long-term drop-off permission that will apply for all parcels delivered by GLS. Of course, you can revoke your permission at any time.

Decline acceptance

You can reject a parcel before it has even been delivered. As a recipient, you can benefit from this practical option if you did not order an item or have already backed out of the purchase. Simply click and confirm the “Decline acceptance of parcel” option. GLS will transport the parcel back to the sender.
