LinkedIn +

Parcel delivery company GLS has added Italy, Portugal, Finland and Bulgaria to its international FlexDeliveryService, taking the total number of countries connected across borders via the service to 21. Parcel recipients have the option to adapt deliveries to their own needs, even in the case of online orders made in other countries.

“The addition of four more countries to the network of markets already connected by the service is another milestone in our pan-European FlexDeliveryService,” said Anne Putz, head of communication and marketing at the GLS Group. “Web shops and their customers, in particular, will benefit from this, as delivery according to the recipient’s choice complements an international shopping experience.”

Regardless of the affiliated market from which online shoppers order products, they will receive information about the delivery in their native language. Depending on the country in question, they will then have various options to manage the time and location of their delivery. This includes, for example, parcel delivery on a desired day, forwarding to a different address or the delivery to a selected ParcelShop.

Countries connected via FlexDeliveryService are:

  • Austria (AT)
  • Belgium (BE)
  • Bulgaria (BG)
  • Czech Republic (CZ)
  • Germany (DE)
  • Denmark (DK)
  • Spain (ES)
  • Finland (FI)
  • France (FR)
  • Croatia (HR)
  • Hungary (HU)
  • Ireland (IE)
  • Italy (IT)
  • Luxembourg (LU)
  • Netherlands (NL)
  • Poland (PL)
  • Portugal (PT)
  • Romania (RO)
  • Slovenia (SI)
  • Slovakia (SK)
  • United Kingdom (UK)
