Parcel prices for occasional shipment

via GLS ParcelShops and GLS-ONE

GLS shipping prices are based on the size of the parcel and on whether the parcel is sent via a ParcelShop or prepared online. The size category of the parcel is calculated based on the sum of the longest and shortest sides of the parcel. There are a total of five different size and price categories for parcels.

If you prepare your parcel online using GLS-ONE, you can benefit of even cheaper parcel prices for your shipment.
