Flexible delivery: GLS informs recipients early about the delivery of goods and offers a variety of delivery options to choose from.

Recipients receive an e-mail containing information about the upcoming delivery of GLS parcels.

This way, recipients can make arrangements to take the delivery of the goods early. Alternatively and if desired they can choose from a variety of delivery options online: for example, select a new date for the delivery, a different address or redirect the parcel to a GLS ParcelShop (if available in the country)
