We support social projects

... because we care about perople.

We are commited to various projects for people who are in need of help. The regional and local campaigns that we support include free parcel transport or support for organisations and institutions. On a local level, support is often given to clubs, kindergartens, schools, hospitals and hospices.

Appreciation, respect and understanding are among our most important principles of cooperation.

GLS donation fire in Neuenstein-Aua

Shortly before Christmas, a family from Neuenstein-Aua lost their home in a tragic fire. As a company that has been based in Neuenstein for more than 30 years and has close ties with the township, it was a matter close to our hearts to help out here.

We would like to thank the "Kirchenkreisamt Bad Hersfeld" for the donation initiative that was specially set up and support the affected family with a donation of 2,000 euros.

GLS donation Christlicher Hilfsdienst
 

Help in GLS parcels

This year, we provided a donation of 2,000 GLS packages for the Christmas aid campaign of Christlicher Hilfsdienst Bad Hersfeld. At their lovingly designed stand in a large local supermarket, the helpers solicited food donations, which are then packed and distributed to people in need. We are pleased about so much commitment and willingness to help, which we are happy to support.

GLS supports the Hamburg "Bio Brotbox" campaign

Make breakfast healthy with the "Bio Brotbox"

For many years, the GLS depots in Hamburg and Tornesch have supported the Hamburg "Bio Brotbox" campaign. This year we delivered around 16,000 boxes in 300 packages to Hamburg's schools. Thousands of children were happy to receive a healthy breakfast in cool, reusable boxes.

The day before, colleagues from the two depots supported the packing campaign, where the boxes were filled with the delicious ingredients by volunteers and loaded into the GLS delivery vehicles.

Our trainees stand up for their environment

The trainees at the GLS head office in Neuenstein had a great idea for a better environment. Together with some of their trainers, they set up a rubbish collection campaign and collected rubbish from various places in the Neuenstein community one afternoon.

We are pleased about so much commitment and passion in the sense of sustainability and were happy to give the trainees time off from work that afternoon.

Thanks for this great action!

GLS donation for the children's fire department

We support the local fire brigades

The GLS head office in Neuenstein is an official "Partner of the Fire Brigade". 13 colleagues are released from work at any time for fire brigade missions. In this way, they help the Neuenstein fire brigade to ensure operational readiness for the day.

As part of our local commitment and as an official partner of the fire brigade, we also support young firefighters. Members of the children's fire departments in the Hersfeld-Rotenburg district received a donation of 700 T-shirts.

 

Professional development

We support the development of young employees with a sound and practically relevant training programme. In Germany, for example, we are training CEP professionals, IT professionals, office communication professionals and IT system integration experts.

A dual study course in logistics management and business informatics is offered in conjunction with universities of applied science. The professional development portfolio is rounded off with an in-house business management programme.

People of different ethnic origin, culture or religion work at and for GLS. Appreciation, respect and understanding in dealing with employees and partners are among the important principles. Thus, personnel development and intensive exchange with transport partners are among the most important building blocks in our company's sustained success.
