You choose – we deliver

Play a role in deciding the time, location and more

Select and influence delivery according to your wishes. Even before a parcel is actually on the road to you, GLS offers you a wide range of delivery options if PrivateDelivery has been booked by the sender.

The delivery options are available as soon as you have received an e-mail by GLS with information about your parcel.

GLS offers recipients two possibilities to conveniently receive parcels when PrivateDelivery has been activated:


  • Directly grant a signature release authorisation


  • Delivery to a GLS ParcelShop
  • Grant a signature release authorisation
  • Delivery to a new address
  • Delivery to the same address on a specific date
  • Collection at a GLS depot

Grant a signature release authorisation

2C-Delivery driver

Granting a signature release authorisation frees you entirely from delivery and opening times. Simply select the drop-off point around your home that you want, such as the patio, and your parcel will be left there for you. A signature to confirm receipt is then no longer necessary.

Select delivery date

You can select a specific date for the delivery. Six dates following the date of sending are available. The estimated time frame for delivery remains the same. Simply click and confirm the “Delivery on a specific day” option. GLS will deliver on the desired day.

Collect it yourself from the GLS depot

Collection in a depot

You can also choose to collect the parcel yourself from the GLS depot responsible for your address. It is kept there for you for ten working days. After that time it will be returned to the sender. Simply click and confirm the “Self-collection from the GLS depot” option. GLS will look after the parcel for you.
