The practical parcel tracking
By entering the parcel number or notification card’s number, you can find out at any time where your parcel is right now. All “travel stations” of the parcel are shown in an overview. Parcel details are also available.
Parcel collection and returns: Find the nearest Point Relais®
GLS has a cooperation with Mondial Relay. Points Relais® of Mondial Relay are parcel collection points where you can also return parcels if the sender has booked the ShopReturnService of GLS. You can comfortably find the nearest Point Relais®, with the GLS App. To do so, simply enter the postcode, street or town. All Points Relais® in the vicinity are shown on an interactive location map – including opening hours, directions and contact information
FlexDeliveryService: Choose a delivery option
GLS provides senders with the opportunity to use the FlexDeliveryService for sending parcels in France or to nine other countries in Europe. If they do so, GLS notifies you by e-mail and SMS about the estimated three hour delivery time frame. Via a link in the e-mail, parcel recipients can then redirect their parcel before the first delivery attempt.
If you call up your e-mails and SMS on the smartphone and have the GLS App installed, you can directly select a delivery option by smartphone – like the delivery to another address, the chosen Point Relais® or to the same address on a certain date.
The convenient barcode scan
The barcode scan replaces the manual typing in of information. If the GLS delivery driver leaves a notification card, you can simply scan the printed barcode with the camera function of the smartphone. This way, the notification card’s number is directly captured and the barcode scan gives quick access to parcel tracking.
Note for senders: Before handing over a parcel, you can scan the barcode on the label of important parcels and thus always have the current status “in your pocket”.
