2. Parcel on its way to recipient
On the day of delivery, the recipient gets a message informing him of the three hours period for which the delivery is scheduled.

Optional delivery possibilities
Thanks to the optional parcel redirection options offered by FlexDeliveryService, the number of complaints and grievances towards senders is decreasing, while the satisfaction of end customers is increasing. The recipient can use the online Delivery manager application to choose between the following five delivery options:
Three delivery attempts
GLS performs two delivery attempts as a standard. With FlexDeliveryService, GLS performs also a third delivery attempt if necessary. In such case GLS sends a message on expected delivery to the recipient through e-mail or SMS message again. Thus the parcel reception is flexible and sending of goods at private addresses less complicated.
