GLS Austria is the first parcel service provider in the country to deliver parcels by eScooter. The test phase is currently ongoing in Salzburg, Linz and Graz. If the results are successful, the e-vehicles will be put into permanent operation.

Noiseless and compact: the eScooter is ideal for deliveries in residential areas and on shopping promenades. The difficulty of finding a parking space is also removed. The vehicle has a capacity of 750 litres and a range of 100 kilometres. Five batteries provide the electric vehicle with enough electricity for a complete route.

Tailored urban logistics

GLS delivers the parcels to the city with conventional delivery vehicles, moving them then to the eScooters. In this way, the parcels can also be delivered to addresses that are otherwise difficult to reach due to construction work, driving bans or narrow streets.
