GLS breaks ground on new depot

GLS breaks ground on new depot

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.
