Reliable parcel delivery

Sending parcels with GLS means that they arrive quickly and safely.

Reliable parcel delivery within defined standard delivery times is the strong point of GLS. Domestic parcels usually reach their destination the next working day. In Europe standard delivery times to neighbouring countries are generally 24 to 48 hours, and to almost all countries at a larger distance within 72 to 120 hours.

GLS delivers parcels Monday to Friday during normal business hours. If the sender takes out no transport insurance, GLS compensates beyond the statutory liability up to the value of the goods to a maximum of 200 € per parcel.

The shipping of parcels can be combined with optional services, meaning that GLS is also able to meet special delivery requirements.

Satisfied recipients. Successful senders.
