For the people of today and tomorrow

Appreciation, respect and understanding in dealings with employees and partners represent one of the key principles of the GLS Group. Another key component in terms of collaboration is intensive communication with the transport partners who handle parcel collection and delivery on behalf of GLS.

GLS subsidiaries across Europe and North America support selected initiatives in their societies.

GLS uses its country-specific structures to support selected initiatives in each nation. GLS national subsidiaries support numerous charitable projects by organising both regional and nationwide initiatives.
These include free parcel shipping for aid organisations and the sponsorship of foundations for people with developmental or physical disabilities. At a local level, the depots provide financial support to many nursery schools, hospitals, hospices and other charitable institutions. Further activities can be found on the websites of the GLS subsidiaries as well in the Group’s Corporate Responsibility Report.

Culture and sports sponsoring

As a part of modern society, GLS gets involved in sport and cultural projects. In some cases these sponsorships are combined with a social commitment. GLS Belgium, for examples, sponsors the Belgian national football team, and staff, partners and people with disabilities are invited to each home game of the team.
