GLS launches new International ShopDeliveryService to extend its cross-border service portfolio

GLS, leading international parcel service provider, launches its new International ShopDeliveryService for shipments to 15 countries across Europe, with more serviced nations to follow. A European-wide service enabling customers to have their international parcels delivered to a pick-up location of their choice. GLS’ International ShopDeliveryService gives receivers the flexibility to pick up their order when it is most convenient and at a location that best suits their personal wishes.

This new service offers myriad benefits, such as a proactive notification system and suitability for delivering to various pick-up locations. With this offering, GLS has created the ideal cross-border B2C delivery solution that goes beyond standard delivery services.

International ShopDeliveryService

GLS strives to provide its customers with a reliable, high-quality service. By using the International ShopDeliveryService, parcels up to 20kg can be delivered to more than 33,000 pick-up points throughout Europe, ensuring that a delivery point is always close by. Due to the convenient opening hours of GLS' Parcel Shops and pick-up locations, recipients can use their time efficiently and decide when and where the parcel will be picked up, without having to worry about missing a parcel at a specific delivery time.

In addition to the benefits it brings the receiver, the International ShopDeliveryService enhances the senders' experience and capabilities. It no longer matters where their customers are based - GLS can offer the delivery solution that fits their needs. This enables senders to enhance their customer experience and service as well as increase their business offerings.

Strengthening of cross-border service portfolio

GLS is extending its cross-border consumer service portfolio by introducing this new service. As part of its flexible business approach, GLS continues to tailor its delivery and services to the needs of consumers. The International ShopDeliveryService enhances an already impressive customer service portfolio, including various existing delivery options. In addition to this new solution, GLS customers can take full advantage of services such as delivery at home, Parcel Shops and ParcelLockers. GLS' cross-border parcel service ensures a reliable and high quality of service across its international network. This new service gives customers increased flexibility when it comes to arranging deliveries. From businesses to individuals, GLS customers can tailor their experience depending on their preferences and requirements.

"We make e-commerce delivery a great experience for consumers by being close to our senders and receivers. With this service, GLS is expanding its international B2C service portfolio, aiming for a customer-focused approach," says Saadi Al-Soudani, Chief International Officer at GLS Group.
