Ensure safe arrival
Goods must be packed well so that they arrive intact. Sturdy cardboard, inner padding and strong tape all offer good protection. The right packaging helps to safeguard the contents of your parcels during automatic sorting and transportation.
All that is then needed is the correct address on the dispatch label and the parcel is ready to send. According to the terms and conditions of GLS, a parcel may weigh up to 40kg in Slovenia (parcels shipped to EU 31,5 kg) and its combined length and girth may be up to three metres.
Size and weight
GLS sorts parcels in distribution centres using automated sorting systems. This allows it to deliver parcels quickly and economically. Parcels are not allowed to exceed certain dimensions so that they move smoothly on the conveyor belts. There is also an upper weight limit.
A parcel can be up to …
- 60 centimetres in height.
- 80 centimetres in width.
- 200 centimetres in length.
- 40 kilograms (SLO and EU) in weight.
The combined length and girth of a parcel can be up to three meters. It is calculated as 2x height plus 2x width plus 1x longest side.
Sending parcels within the EU
Occasional senders can send their parcels with GLS to most countries in the European Union. Parcels across the country are usually delivered the next working day. Consignments throughout Europe arrive within short standard delivery times.
