GLS offers logistics services that complement and exceed the standardised transportation of parcels. In some countries, the offer includes complete fulfilment solutions as well as freight transports.
Warehousing and more
Storing, packing and dispatching goods: In Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Portugal and Spain, GLS takes care of entire warehousing operations for companies.
Value-added services such as the inspection of incoming-goods and quality control, picking, repacking and labelling are provided in accordance with the needs of customers – and also subsequent services such as the complete returns management.
All warehouses are directly connected to the GLS network. GLS manages goods and information flows using its efficient IT system. Companies’ Enterprise Resource Planning systems can on request be linked to the GLS system. This way, consignors can keep track of their stock at all times.
In Belgium and the Netherlands, GLS has separate freight distribution networks. Freight shipments generally reach their destinations within the standard delivery time of 24 hours throughout the Benelux region – real-time tracking included. GLS also transports freight in Italy.
In addition to standardised and system-controlled transport services, GLS offers solutions for goods that because of their size, weight or urgency require special handling. This includes direct delivery with personal supervision starting at the sender’s location and continuing right up to the point of delivery, same-day delivery, and full-load transportation. In some countries GLS covers a wide range of services.
