Useful information for senders

In this section you will find an overview of the most important information for proper parcel shipping via the GLS network. GLS customer service is available to customers every working day from 7:00 to 18:00 +420 567 771 111.

Dear Customers,

In the context of sending export packages to countries outside the EU, we have switched to a new electronic portal, which must now be used for all packages sent to customs areas. This online form allows you to enter your export information, attach an invoice or Export Accompanying Document and submit the data. With the move to this system, it is no longer possible to arrange for the issue of Customs Export Documents (CEDs) via GLS, they must be electronically attached to the system once issued.

This portal allows the use of a custom API. The current method of data and document transmission will no longer be accepted.

To create access to the new customs portal, contact

Parcel labels

Each parcel sent via GLS must be marked with a label with a unique parcel number under which it can be delivered throughout the European GLS network.

A suitably chosen and strong box with enough filling material will guarantee the delivery of goods without any damage to the recipient.

Size and weight restrictions

Parcels in the GLS transport network go through automated sorting processes, therefore they must not exceed the maximum dimensions and weight.
