GLS has a holistic approach to sustainability

The aim is to offer customers the highest quality in terms of logistics whilst providing employees with a stable job at a strong company. For GLS, these two factors go hand in hand.

By achieving these goals, GLS also contributes to the mobility and reliable availability of goods, which, in turn, constitute the backbone of the economy. Our goal is to attain sustainable commercial success whilst protecting the environment for future generations.

Sustainability is now seen by a great many people as one of the most urgent issues facing our society. We at GLS can see this simply from the fact that the demands of our dialogue groups in this area continue to increase. Of course we are very pleased about this development.
