Reliable international freight delivery: GLS transports large and heavy items, groupage or pallets across Europe.

In the Benelux countries GLS delivers freight shipments safely and rapidly within its own specialised freight network. Pallets and groupage reach their destination usually within 24 hours – throughout the whole region.

More distant regions in Europe are served in standard delivery times of 48 to 96 hours. Here, GLS cooperates with selected, strong partners.

For an easier organisation: International freight shipments are usually picked up together with domestic pallets.
