GLS breaks ground on new depot

Monday, January 23rd, 2017

GLS held an official groundbreaking ceremony on Friday (20 January) to mark the beginning of construction work on a new depot in Schutterwald, near Offenburg.

The depot should be operational by as early as the middle of the year.

The new Schutterwald depot replaces a facility which GLS said “does not offer potential for expansion”.

GLS added: “The new depot is closer to the delivery area: journey times are thus shortened and routes in the entire region optimised. GLS is hiring a total of 35 new full- and part-time employees.”

The new depot will be able to handle around 15,000 parcels a day, and GLS has the option of further increasing capacity in a second stage of expansion.

The new location is said to have “numerous ecological features”, including air–water heat pumps, a rainwater harvesting system, recyclable building materials and energy-efficient LED illumination.
