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.

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 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.

GLS donation fire in Neuenstein-Aua

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.

In the GLS Donation Contest, sports clubs from our region could apply for a donation.

Congratulations to the winners!
