What GLS stands for

Your parcel arrives safe and sound.

In order that goods reach the receiver securely, specific security measures are essential. GLS has created uniform security standards across Europe for systematic prevention.

The GLS Group damage and loss ratio has for years remained consistently low at 0.01 percent.

Modern alarm systems are used to protect goods. In the hubs and larger depots, GLS monitors parcels using video surveillance. Each individual process step is checked. GLS scans the parcels at all important interfaces and analyses the data.

Employees and delivery drivers are given regular training in order to ensure careful handling of all consignments. Liability up to the value of the goods, maximum € 750 per international parcel and maximum € 520 per national parcel, is also included.

What security means at GLS:

  • high security standards throughout the Group​
  • multiple scanning of parcels
  • video surveillance, alarm systems, access controls
  • regular training of employees and delivery drivers
  • continuous checks of parcel processing and loading
