Protecting the health of shippers, recipients, partners and employees is our top priority

Almost all Corona regulations have been dropped in the meantime. However, we continue to rely on a range of protective measures to minimise the risk of infection that still exists and also ask our customers and recipients to exercise due caution. Together, we continue to aim to ensure the supply of the community by keeping logistics running as smoothly as possible. We would like to thank all those involved for their cooperation and support.

Delivery and pickup

Contactless delivery - for your safety

Your parcels should continue to be delivered safely without direct contact. With contactless delivery, the driver rings your doorbell as usual and waits until you are ready to receive the parcel. With contactless delivery, the carrier types the name of the recipient into the hand-held scanner and signs his or her name when handing over the parcel. This way, you have no contact with the hand scanner and still receive your parcel safely and contactlessly.

You cannot receive your parcel in person? Then use the drop-off permission . By issuing a drop-off permission, GLS deposits your parcels at an agreed location - for example in the garage or on the terrace.

You can also easily issue a one-time, parcel-related delivery permit online via our parcel tracking system. The delivery driver then receives a note on his hand scanner and places the parcel at the specified location.
