GLS also handles bulky parcels and unusually shaped items. The maximum parcel dimensions and weights nevertheless still apply.
Additional effort for bulky goods delivery
GLS sorts and scans these parcels manually at its distribution centres and depots. They are not suitable for the automatic sorting systems that GLS uses to achieve quick and reliable parcel delivery. A parcel may be classified as ‘unsortable’ due to its dimensions, shape or outer packaging, in which case it will be sent as a bulky item.
