If you cannot take receipt of your parcel yourself, you can ask for it to be redirected. This free service offers you maximum flexibility and control. Smart and reliable
This assumes, however, that you have already received a notification card, or parcel notification email. Our parcel tracking system offers you a practical way to check if delivery options are currently available for your specific parcel. Alternatively you can issue a general or one-time drop off permission at any time.
On request, GLS will drop off parcels in a designated location – for example in the garage or on the patio. Issuing GLS with drop off permission is very simple: download the PDF, fill out the form electronically and print it.
On the notification card left for you by the GLS delivery agent after the first delivery attempt, you will find the Track ID. You can use this Track ID to check the available delivery options and select one accordingly.
Have you received a parcel notification from GLS by email? In this case, you can choose to grant a drop-off permission for your parcel. To do this, you just need to click the delivery options specified in your email.
Not at home at the time of delivery? No problem. Just specify a drop-off location and the GLS delivery agent will leave your parcel there.
Redirect your parcel to a local GLS ParcelShop. Your ParcelShop will take receipt of the parcel and keep it for you for up to eight working days.
You can also collect the parcel yourself from the GLS depot, where it will be kept for four working days. Once this period has elapsed, the parcel will be returned to the sender.
