GLS ParcelShops

The easy way to send parcels

Whether you're a business or a private individual, everybody can send parcels quickly and flexibly in GLS ParcelShops.

There are over 5,500 GLS ParcelShops located throughout Germany to take care of your parcel shipments. The shops are integrated into other local businesses, so you will always be able to send and pick up parcels nearby. Our parcel acceptance points are for example based in establishments such as newsagents, kiosks and bakeries.

Most ParcelShops are on hand to accept your parcels between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. on weekdays. Many of them are also open much earlier in the mornings, later in the evenings and also on Saturdays.

Send your parcels quickly and easily with GLS.


Solid GLS ParcelShop network

As a parcel service provider, we contribute to the basic supply of the population, delivering elementary goods for daily needs, such as medicines, drugstore articles, disinfectants or medical devices.

Our ParcelShops are regarded by the authorities as necessary facilities for basic services and are therefore allowed to continue offering our parcel service. Around three-quarters of all GLS ParcelShops are currently available for parcel delivery and acceptance. You can find all available ParcelShops in your area here:

In the current situation, the health and safety of all those involved is also a top priority within the ParcelShop network. In addition to the necessary hygiene measures, the process of parcel delivery and pick-up is also contactless - your signature on the smartphone is therefore currently not required. Instead, the ParcelShop partner confirms the delivery of the parcel with his signature after checking your identity card, and you will receive a printed receipt if required.. We thank you for keeping your distance, especially when the shop is very crowded, and for your patience.
