GLS opens new depots

News 24/04/2018

The new sites in Warsaw, Konin and Tarnów strengthen the network of GLS in Poland, raising the total number of depots to 35.

GLS Poland recently opened its biggest depot so far. With a total building area of 7,600 square meters, the site near Warsaw can process up to 80.000 parcels per day. Overall, the depot offers 120 courier gates, 40 dual-use gates and 16 unloading gates equipped with fast sorting infrastructure. Located in Wypędy near Warsaw, the new site is close to the Puchały junction on the S8 expressway and the A2 ring road. Line-hauls and delivery drivers have especially quick access to the capital as well as the northern and eastern part of the region.

Strategic investments

Also in April, GLS Poland opened new franchise depots in Konin and Tarnów. The depot in Konin lies in the vicinity of the A2 highway and handles about 3,500 parcels a day. It relieves the existing depots in Stryków, Poznań and Kalisz. After the depot in Leszno, it is the second site GLS recently opened in the Greater Poland region.

The depot in Tarnów (Lesser Poland) is conveniently located near the A4 highway and the route 73. It is equipped with a total of 13 gates for delivery vans and linehaul trucks. Almost 1,500 parcels can be handled here per day. Tarnów takes over tours from the depots in Cracow, Nowy Sącz and Rzeszów and thus optimizes the processes of pick-ups and deliveries.

With these three new sites, the parcel service provider significantly bolsters the capacities and shortening processes throughout the country.
