To prepare for further growth in parcel volumes, GLS Spain has opened two new hubs. In March 2020, an international transhipment centre near Barcelona went into operation, doubling the GLS’ capacity in the province. Already in November 2019, a national hub near Valencia started operating – with a 70 percent increase in maximum capacity.
