Your customers expect transparent, reliable, flexible parcel delivery. Our reliable parcel tracking system gives you and your customers full transparency about the status of your consignment.
And if you've already sent out the parcel, you can also offer customers full control and flexibility over the delivery process with our FlexDeliveryService. But fulfilling delivery requests is not enough: a customised returns strategy rounds off our attractive offering for B2C customers. Your customers will thank you.
Over half the items sent in e-commerce weigh less than 500 grams.
Specifically with these items in mind, we offer our LetterboxService, where delivery is made directly to the consignee's letterbox - ideal for sending catalogues or smaller products. Your customer benefits by receiving their item promptly and safely in their letterbox.
Your added value: reliable delivery on the first delivery attempt, even if the customer isn't at home. This saves time and protects the environment. And of course, you still get full transparency thanks to our parcel tracking.
Our flexible delivery options not only increase customer satisfaction, they also allow you to make a commitment to climate protection and demonstrate your environmental responsibility.
GLS KlimaProtect makes sustainable parcel logistics part of our everyday business. With us as your B2C business partner, you can meet your customers' expectations for a forward-looking business model. Your benefit: higher repurchasing rates and a positive contribution to the environment.
