  • Uncomplicated international returns shipment with the GLS ParcelShops
  • Available across borders in thirteen countries
  • Convenient returns management for private recipients

Amsterdam, 26. October 2020. The parcel service provider GLS expands the international returns shipment over the GLS ParcelShops by further four countries. With the ShopReturnService, GLS customers and their private recipients have a flexible returns solution for national and cross-border returns within Europe.

The ShopReturnService was previously available across borders for the countries Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, Luxembourg, Austria, the Netherlands, Hungary and Poland. From now on, GLS customers can book this service additionally for the countries Great Britain, Slovakia, Spain and the Czech Republic. By the end of the current calendar year, France, Finland and Slovenia will also be connected, so that full European coverage will be nearly achieved. The online portal, which was launched in July this year specifically for this service, can be individually configured and branded by GLS customers, as well as easily and comfortably linked to their own website by using an interface.

Useful also for the private recipient

Private recipients can easily generate their own return labels, then submit free of charge the returns to any GLS ParcelShop of their choice and easily and comfortably return items ordered abroad. GLS returns management is therefore fast and consumer-friendly.
