International FlexDeliveryService for Irish online shoppers

News 01/08/2018

Delivery to suit individual needs: Irish consumers now have convenient delivery options to choose from when GLS delivers their online purchases. The service is available for domestic and international orders including parcels from the United Kingdom.

About 80 percent of Irish online shoppers buy in the UK*. At the same time, it is becoming increasingly popular to shop from domestic** as well as from foreign web shops***. GLS has now expanded the FlexDeliveryService to the benefit of Irish consumers. Online retailers in Ireland and in 16 other countries can book flexible delivery with GLS and offer it to their customers.

Focus on own preferences

With the FlexDeliveryService, GLS informs recipients via e-mail about their upcoming parcel delivery. Shoppers receive an estimated delivery time frame and can choose between several delivery options. Among them, delivery on a specific day and granting a drop off permission. Thus, particularly those who are not at home during the day receive their parcel more simply and conveniently.
