New depot in Amsterdam

News 09/05/2019

Construction has started: the modern, sustainable GLS depot will more than double parcel handling capacity compared to the current location.

With the new construction in Atlas Park, Port of Amsterdam, GLS is preparing itself for ongoing growth in parcel numbers. The distribution hall will increase to 6,200 square metres, and the number of loading and unloading gates to 140. The overall concept is designed for fast, efficient processes. Part of that is the state-of-the-art sorter.

Focus on the environment and staff

To minimise environmental impacts, solar panels on the roof and a heat-pump system for heating will be installed. There will also be charging stations for electric vehicles.

The advantages for the more than 200 personnel on site: a new staff canteen, bigger offices, a modern ParcelShop, lots of daylight in the distribution hall and improved ergonomics for drivers when loading and unloading their vans and trucks.
