Reliable parcel delivery

Sending a parcel with GLS means that it arrives quickly and safely.

Reliable parcel delivery within defined standard delivery times is the strong point of GLS. Domestic parcels usually reach their destination in less than 24 hours. In Europe delivery times are generally between 24 and 96 hours. GLS delivers Monday to Friday during normal business hours. If the sender takes out no transport insurance, GLS compensates beyond the statutory liability up to the value of the goods to a maximum of € 750 per parcel. Further information on regular shipment can be found in our FAQs .

Parcel products can be combined with optional services, meaning that GLS is also able to meet special delivery requirements.
