GLS has its own air freight office at Frankfurt Airport to ensure secure and transparent worldwide deliveries. The GLS Airport Office carries out all global import- and export-related tasks, including collecting import consignments for customers. GLS picks up import consignments from handling agents and airlines and takes care of all customs formalities.

GLS is a registered IATA Air Cargo Agent and a regulated agent of the German air cargo authorities. This applies both to the Airport Office in Frankfurt as well as the main hub in Neuenstein. The GLS office is open six days a week and is located, like the warehouse, in the Cargo City South.
