What should I do if my parcel is damaged?

The sender is responsible for packing goods properly. If a parcel has any external damage, for example a hole in the box, you can refuse to accept the parcel. GLS will then return the parcel to the depot and inform the sender about the complaint.

If you accept a seemingly intact parcel and subsequently discover that the contents are damaged, you should complain to the sender. This is because GLS cannot check and must not check the contents of sent parcels. Postal secrecy also applies to GLS.
