Milestones in the history of GLS

A network for Europe



After being founded in late 1999, GLS succeeded in establishing a stable European parcel network in just a few years. Today it covers 41 European countries and seven U.S. states. Acquisitions and partnerships have since then been milestones in the history of the company. In many countries GLS has founded its own companies – often complete networks, which have immediately gone into full operation.
