International parcel dispatch: GLS is your reliable partner when sending a parcel to countries within the EU.

Reliable parcel dispatch within defined standard delivery times is the strong point of GLS. Precisely-coordinated scheduled transports and modern distribution centres link the individual countries.

An international GLS parcel is delivered to neighbouring states like Sweden or the Baltic countries in a standard delivery time of 24 to 72 hours. To more distant European countries the international parcel dispatch takes between three and five days, to remote areas up to eight days*.

The service quality is uniformly high throughout Europe – first-class international parcel dispatch.
