Convenient parcel redirection - the choice is yours

If you cannot take receipt of your parcel yourself, you can ask for it to be redirected or select one of many other delivery options. This free service offers you maximum flexibility and control. Smart and reliable.

This assumes, however, that you have already received a notification card, or parcel notification email. Our parcel tracking system offers you a practical way to check which delivery options are currently available for your specific parcel.

Notification card

On the notification card left for you by the GLS delivery agent after the first delivery attempt, you will find the Track ID. You can use this Track ID to check the available delivery options and select one accordingly.

You want to redirect your parcel?

If GLS cannot deliver your parcel to you personally, your neighbour or a nearby ParcelShop for your collection, you can choose what happens next. Parcel redirection and the fulfilment of the chosen options are free of charge.
