Protecting the health of shippers, recipients, partners and employees is our top priority
Some Corona regulations were dropped at the beginning of April. However, we continue to rely on a range of protective measures to minimise the risk of infection that still exists and also ask our customers and recipients to exercise due caution. Together, we continue to aim to ensure the supply of the community by keeping logistics running as smoothly as possible. We would like to thank all those involved for their cooperation and support.
The GLS Booster Campaign
United against the Corona virus!
To bring the vaccination directly to the people was the goal of our own and unique vaccination campaign. After almost seven weeks on tour, the GLS vaccination mobile has come to an end for the time being. The positive result: around 450 people have received their vaccination through this low-threshold service - without registration or waiting time.
Together with numerous helpers, we have thus made an important contribution to the health and safety of employees, their families and the population since the beginning of February. The campaign, which is unique in Germany, began in Leipzig at the beginning of February. The last stop for the GLS vaccine mobile was in Cologne on 18 March 2022. During the tour throughout Germany, the campaign was expanded to 32 cities with over 50 stops.

Our prevention measures
We take care of the health protection of our employees, partners, customers and recipients with a range of measures.

Strict implementation of the necessary hygiene measures in all areas.
Reduced travel activity
Meetings and conferences are conducted via telephone or video as far as possible.
Distribution of staff
Home office in administrative areas, otherwise spatial distribution and regular testing on site.
For our shippers and consignees we offer the possibility of contactless delivery.
We constantly monitor relevant developments and immediately initiate necessary measures if required.
Delivery and pickup
Contactless delivery - for your safety
For us, the protection of our customers and employees has highest priority. Your parcels should continue to be delivered safely without direct contact. With contactless delivery, the driver rings your doorbell as usual and waits until you are ready to receive the parcel. With contactless delivery, the carrier types the name of the recipient into the hand-held scanner and signs his or her name when handing over the parcel. This way, you have no contact with the hand scanner and still receive your parcel safely and contactlessly.
You cannot receive your parcel in person? Then use the drop-off permission . By issuing a drop-off permission, GLS deposits your parcels at an agreed location - for example in the garage or on the terrace.
You can also easily issue a one-time, parcel-related delivery permit online via our parcel tracking system. The delivery driver then receives a note on his hand scanner and places the parcel at the specified location.
Safety also in the GLS ParcelShops
Health and safety are also top priorities for us in the GLS ParcelShops. In addition to the necessary hygiene measures, the process for parcel drop-off and acceptance is also contactless. A signature on the smartphone is therefore not currently required. You can find all available ParcelShops near you here.
