GLS offers pan-European parcel logistics, express delivery and logistics solutions. Founded in 1999, with strong roots in the national markets, GLS is now one of the leading parcel carriers in Europe. GLS parcels reach their destination securely and reliably.
Via own subsidiaries and partner companies GLS provides reliable transport and logistics services in 42 countries. In many countries the carrier also offers express delivery and logistical value-added services .
“Quality leader in European parcel logistics” is the guiding principle of GLS. Quality for the parcel service provider means: high reliability and delivery performance, extremely low damage and loss ratios, and short delivery times for GLS parcels. In most countries, the shipping company realises national transport and logistics services in less than 24 hours. International delivery times are between 24 to 96 hours; European business centres are generally serviced by the carrier within 48 hours.
The logistic company GLS has a strong, road-based European parcel network with dense national networks. Precisely-coordinated long-distance transports link distribution centres, while modern technology enables rapid and reliable consignment sorting. The parcel carrier works with standardised processes. The key element is the harmonised IT system of GLS, which allows all GLS companies to easily exchange information.
Security is also enhanced by the parcel carrier with the use of state-of-the-art technology. Alarm systems and digital video surveillance systems are installed in all the major hubs and depots to monitor and record all the parcels. Each parcel is marked with an individual number that is recorded electronically by the parcel carrier at every important interface. The scanned data is used for the IT-based processing and monitoring of the over 400 million parcels delivered annually. Senders can see at any time where a GLS parcel is located.
The transport and logistics company GLS has a uniform, pan-European basic parcel product for national and international delivery that can be supplemented with country-specific services.
