About GLS

GLS (General Logistics Systems) is a major European logistics company that was founded in 1970. They are known to be the first companies who created a private transport trucking network on an international scale. Nowadays, GLS has over 50 branch offices all around Europe and more than 40% of their employees are from different nationalities! 

The company has been awarded with the International Transport Excellence Award and Europe's Best Multinational Workplaces.

Their main services include: Express, standard and economy parcel service; furniture transport from IKEA; supply chain consulting to their clients (e.g., Lidl); road transportation of dangerous goods etc. GLS is one of the biggest private companies in Germany that provides freight forwarding services all around Europe through its European network located at strategic places on the map for fast delivery times! 

GLS was founded by Hermann Bachmaier and Kurt Sigrist in 1970 as a regional courier service. In the beginning it worked with small trucks that were only allowed to drive locally, so they had limited coverage area. 

When GLS joined forces with Dachser Kombinat (another German logistics company) in 1996, their services expanded across Europe over 400 locations! Since then, GLS has been providing fast delivery times for its clients all around European countries like Germany, Netherlands or Switzerland at an affordable price range. 

In 2010, Hermes acquired GLS and became the largest logistics group in Europe. With their joint forces they're able to offer transport services up to over 800 destinations all around the world! 

As of 2017, GLS also provides e-commerce solution for online retailers like Zalando or Douglas with a complete package consisting from storage (at one of their warehouses), picking, packaging and delivery through road transportation. This way it is possible for them to deliver parcels faster than any other courier service because they use trucks that are allowed on motorways across Europe without stopping at cities along the route - this helps save time as well as fuel costs. They can also guarantee better tracking possibilities compared to other private carriers which have only limited access to public roads.

GLS is also known for cooperating with other companies like IKEA, and transporting their furniture all across Europe in a cost-effective way through trucks so that people are able to get their products faster (from warehouse to home). Another example can be online retailers who have decided to outsource delivery of goods sold on their platforms - GLS has the capacity and networks needed!
