Practical parcel tracking
By entering the parcel number or Track-ID that is on the notification, you can check where is your parcel at any time. All "travel points" of the shipment are shown in the overview. Detailed parcel information is also available.
Searching for GLS ParcelShop
Find your nearest GLS ParcelShop using the app. To do this, all you have to do is enter your zip code, street or city name. The nearest GLS ParcelShops will be shown on an interactive map, alonr with opening hours and contact details.
FlexDeliveryService: choose the delivery option
GLS provides senders the opportunity to use the FlexDeliveryService for domestic and international shipments sent between Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Greece, Ireland, Spain, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Germany, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary, Great Britain and Italy. If they do so, GLS notifies the recipient by e-mail about the estimated delivery time frame. Via a link in the e-mail, parcel recipients can then redirect their parcel before the first delivery attempt.
If you receive e-mails on your smartphone and you have the GLS mobile application installed, you can use this device to choose the delivery option that is right for you - for example, delivery to a ParcelShop GLS point or change the delivery date.
Parcel forwarding - change online delivery options after the first delivery attempt
If the courier fails to deliver the parcel directly to you or leaves it at a neighbor's or GLS ParcelShop as part of the first delivery attempt, he will leave a notice with the Track ID number on it. Entering that Track ID into the GLS Mobile App allows you to select an option for the second delivery attempt.
Convenient barcode and 2D scanning
The barcode scan replaces the manual typing in of information. If the GLS delivery driver leaves a notification card, you can simply scan the printed barcode with the camera function of the smartphone. This way, the Track ID is directly captured and the barcode scan gives quick access to parcel tracking.
Note for senders: Before handing over a parcel, you can scan the barcode on the label of important parcels and thus always have the current status “in your pocket”.
