What makes GLS a special parcel service?

At GLS, we don’t just deliver from A to B. We deliver from person to person.

When we look at our boxes, we don’t see parcels. We see people.
When we think about what’s inside them, we don’t see objects. We see emotions.

Inside the box are the dreams, ambitions and hopes of every sender and receiver. Inside the box are stories. Stories of things that matter to real people, in the real world. And if it matters to them, It matters to us.

We see things differently. We think inside the box.

We celebrate the International Women's Day

The most important thing on International Women's Day is: women.

We celebrate International Women's Day at GLS with many successful women at all levels of our international network. One of them is Melanie Menkhaus.

Melanie came to us at the age of 20 because she was looking for a dynamic, international employer who promotes and develops employees. She has now been working for GLS for over 20 years. In various positions at the company, she has come to know and appreciate values such as good leadership, appreciation, pragmatic and professional work, and continuous development. Today, Melanie is Region Manager of the North Region – and is convinced that these values make a good working relationship.

GLS is a dynamically growing company. That's why we are looking for active, creative, customer-oriented people who want to develop themselves and GLS and strengthen our team. On our carreer website you will find all current jobs and vacancies.
