Signature release authorisation

A comfortable solution for recipients

If desired, GLS leaves parcels at an agreed location – for example, in a garage or on a patio.

This is especially useful for recipients who cannot be there to receive their parcel in person. It means they are entirely independent of the delivery time.

Issuing a release authorisation to GLS is easy. Simply download the PDF file, print it, fill it out – don’t forget to sign it - and send it to your GLS Depot. Alternatively, you can simply hand the release authorisation for the next delivery to the driver. Once you issue a release authorisation to GLS, leaving the parcel at the defined location counts as successful parcel delivery.

Issue a release authorisation

You have two options

When filling out the release authorisation form you can choose between a once-off or general a signature release authorisation. In the case of a once-off release authorisation, the driver will leave the next parcel at the specified location. All subsequent parcels will be handed over to you personally. If you issue a general authorisation, GLS will deliver every parcel to the specified location in the future.
