Drop off permission

Convenient solution for consignees

On request, GLS will drop off parcels in a designated location – for example in the garage or on the patio.

This is particularly practical for consignees who cannot take receipt of their parcel in person. This means they are not tied to a precise delivery time.

Issuing GLS with drop off permission is very simple: download the PDF, fill out the form electronically and print it – don't forget the signature. You can either give the completed form to your GLS delivery agent or send the document to the following email address: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Once you have issued GLS with drop off permission, the parcel is deemed to have been delivered when it is dropped off in the designated location.
