Do you want to send parcels in overlength? Send parcels up to 2.00 m with GLS
GLS sorts and scans oversize parcels manually at its distribution centers and depots. The reason for this is that they are not suitable for the automatic sorting systems. In addition, these parcels cause increased effort in delivery due to their length dimensions. For this reason, parcels with a length of 1.50 m or more are sent as overlength parcels.
When does overlength start being charged?
Overlength is charged from a parcel length of 1.50 m. Beyond that, a length of 2.00 m (longest side) must not be exceeded.
Is it possible to send overlength parcels abroad with GLS?: Yes, the same rules apply here as for national shipping.
