GLS offers pan-European parcel logistics, express delivery and logistics solutions. Founded in 1999, with strong roots in the national markets, GLS is now one of the leading parcel service providers in Europe. GLS parcels reach their destination securely and reliably.
Via own subsidiaries and partner companies the shipping company provides reliable parcel delivery services in 41 European countries and seven U.S. states. In many countries it also offers express delivery and logistical value-added services.
“Quality leader in European parcel logistics” is the guiding principle of GLS. Quality for the parcel service provider means: high reliability and delivery performance, extremely low damage and loss ratios, and short delivery times for GLS parcels. In most countries the logistics company acomplishes national delivery less than 24 hours. International delivery times are between 24 to 96 hours; European business centres are generally serviced within 48 hours.
The logistics company GLS has a strong, road-based European parcel network with dense national networks. Precisely-coordinated long-distance transports link distribution centres, while the shipping company’s modern technology enables rapid and reliable consignment sorting. The parcel service provider works with standardised processes. The key element is the harmonised IT system of GLS, which allows all GLS companies to easily exchange information.
Security is also enhanced by the use of state-of-the-art technology. Alarm systems and digital video surveillance systems are installed in all of the logistics company’s major hubs and depots to monitor and record all the parcels. Each parcel is marked with an individual number that is recorded electronically at every important interface. The scanned data is used for the IT-based processing and monitoring of the over 500 million parcels that the shipping company delivers annually. As part of the overall parcel service, senders can see at any time where a GLS parcel is located.
GLS has a uniform, pan-European basic parcel product for national and international delivery that can be supplemented with country-specific parcel services.
