Parcel delivery by GLS

Parcel delivery GLS Denmark

Fast and reliable – that is how you want to receive your parcel. And that’s precisely how GLS wants to deliver parcels on behalf of senders.

Today, the majority of GLS parcels to private individuals are delivered via a GLS ParcelShop in Denmark. Parcel delivery to a GLS ParcelShop is integrated in the ordering process of many online shops: If you buy goods, you can select one of over 1,550 GLS ParcelShops as your delivery address.

This way, you can choose a GLS ParcelShop that is close to your work or on your way to daily errands.

Parcel delivery at home

In some cases, senders have used GLS Denmark for the delivery of private parcels to your home address. As GLS mainly delivers parcels between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. most people are at work and not able to confirm the parcel reception with a signature.

However, if you are not present at the time of parcel delivery, the delivery driver will take the parcel to a ParcelShop nearby and leave a notification card. On it, you will find the parcel number, name and address of the ParcelShop were you can pick up the parcel.

You can pick it up the same day after 4 p.m. or within 10 working days. Once the parcel is in a GLS ParcelShop, GLS will consider it “delivered”.

Power of attorney

You also have the possibility to issue a signature release authorisation to the driver for the delivery of your parcel at a closer defined place.

Parcel delivery and transport times

GLS delivers parcels on working days from Monday to Friday – in Denmark usually the following workday. This standard delivery time is not assured or guaranteed, however. Parcels are transported by road, so traffic holdups can lead to delays.
