The parcel service GLS Ireland has more than doubled the number of its ParcelShops. Consumers can now conveniently post, collect or return GLS parcels at almost 400 service points.
Thanks to a partnership with ParcelDirect.ie, GLS Ireland has seamlessly integrated around 200 new service points into its existing GLS ParcelShop network. ParcelDirect.ie primarily collaborates with an association of Spar supermarkets and filling stations to also ensure good supply in rural areas. With this cooperation, GLS Ireland has now expanded its network for private individuals and small-scale business shippers to almost 400 ParcelShops spread throughout the entire country.
Andreas Rickert, Managing Director of GLS Ireland comments: “Web shops and their customers particularly stand to benefit from the expansion of our network.
“With its FlexDeliveryService, GLS gives parcel recipients the option to have their orders sent to a ParcelShop of their choice or set a specific delivery time, for example. If the merchant chooses ShopReturnService, consumers can drop off returns in ParcelShops free of charge.”
Both services are also available for international parcels. GLS carries out international returns between Ireland, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Luxembourg and Poland.
