Dispatch preparation with the GLS App

The mobile alternative – the GLS App offers senders numerous advantages: with the GLS App, you can prepare your parcel dispatch on the go and without registration. You simply create the parcel label on your smartphone and take it with you to a GLS ParcelShop as a QR code. The ParcelShop employee scans the QR code, prints out the corresponding label and attaches it to the parcel. They will also accept the delivery charge in cash if you have not paid it in advance – because payment, too, is possible via smartphone.

In addition, the app offers senders numerous other practical functions such as the ParcelShop search with routeplaner, and delivery track & trace.
