Using parcel labels

Consignors who only send small volumes of parcels have several options when it comes to the dispatch method.

They can either bring their parcels to a GLS ParcelShop to have them labelled and sent there, or they can print the label in advance – either at home or in the office – using EasyStart.

Sending parcels from a GLS ParcelShop

Cash-sale parcel label: The parcel label is completed in the GLS ParcelShop. It serves as an address label and receipt for the sender and ParcelShop. The parcel label must be completed in clearly legible block letters or be machine-printed. All fields should be filled in and the receipt must be signed.

“ParcelShop” mini parcel label: The mini-parcel label is used in addition to the cash-sale parcel label. The printed bar code and the parcel number ensure that a parcel is uniquely identifiable, including for service-request purposes. The detachable sections of the mini-parcel label are attached to the sender’s receipt and the ParcelShop manager’s copy.

Size-category sticker: This label is used to indicate a parcel’s size measured before (XS to XL).

Online dispatch preparation

EasyStart parcel label: The dispatch label is printed with EasyStart. It includes the parcel number and size category. If a parcel is handed over in a ParcelShop, the ParcelShop ID number is added to the label and the delivery confirmation is signed. If the consignor books a collection, the driver signs for the parcel on collection.
