Committed to the future
GLS implements pre-planned actions ensuring that all shipment-related operations are environmental-friendly. The goal is to effectively use resources and optimise processes.
GLS reduces fuel consumption and limits the emission of greenhouse gases. The whole fleet is gradually replaced by more environmental-friendly models, including subcontractor vehicles and passenger company cars.
Planning transport routes
To improve operational processes and transport procedures, GLS use modern IT-based planning tools. The distance of transport routes is systematically reduced by optimising planning systems.
GLS green structures: when designing new buildings as well as extending or upgrading existing ones pro-environmental aspects are taken into account. Rainwater collection systems, photovoltaic (PV) systems, recycled building materials and heating systems with heat pumps are used wherever possible.
GLS improves the prevailing part of procedures to make them even more environmental-friendly, for example by implementing e-invoices in Europe, electronic letters of delivery and confirmations. Video conferences allow us to reduce the number of business trips.
