GLS provides flexible delivery in Ireland

GLS is now offering its FlexDeliveryService in Ireland for online shoppers.

With the FlexDeliveryService, online shoppers can prepare themselves for the delivery date announced or alternatively choose from several convenient delivery options.

If the online retailer has booked the FlexDeliveryService, GLS informs the parcel recipient via email early on about the upcoming delivery – including the estimated delivery time frame. If the delivery time does not suit the customer, they can choose from the following options:
• Delivery on a specific day
• Collection from one of over 180 GLS ParcelShops located in retail businesses throughout the country
• Collection from a GLS depot
• Granting of signature release authorisation to drop off the parcel in a safe place, for example in the garden or on the patio

Before dispatch or while the parcel is on its way, the recipient can control its delivery online free of charge to suit their wishes. Track & Trace allows the consignment to be tracked from its collection to delivery. If the parcel arrives at a ParcelShop or the drop-off location, the recipient is informed immediately. GLS generally delivers domestic shipments within 24 hours.

The GLS flexible delivery service is also available for international dispatch, with the delivery options being tailored to the country.
