Size and weight
GLS sorts parcels in distribution centres using automated sorting systems. This allows it to deliver parcels quickly and economically. Parcels are not allowed to exceed certain dimensions so that they move smoothly on the conveyor belts. There is also an upper weight limit.
A parcel can be up to …
- 60 centimetres in height.
- 80 centimetres in width.
- 200 centimetres in length.
- 30 kilograms in weight for shipment within the Republic of Ireland.
- 40 kilograms in weight for shipment abroad.
The combined length and girth of a parcel can be up to three meters.
It is calculated as 1x longest side plus 2x height plus 2x width.
