Going farther together: GLS Ireland added GlobalBusinessParcel to its service portfolio and offers deliveries to important economic centres within three to five days – across the Atlantic and even all the way to the Pacific. Many companies are already using the service. A key factor is fast and straightforward processing.
From Ireland to the entire world – the easy way
Deliveries to the US are particularly sought after. Canada and Australia, China and Hong Kong are also popular destinations. With GlobalBusinessParcel, GLS customers are shipping across all spectrums of goods – from medical products and fashion to homewares and sporting equipment.
“Over 60 customers are already using our latest product, which we are using for shipments into almost every country in the world,” says Swen Krüger, Managing Director GLS Ireland. “Senders are mostly small and medium-sized businesses that are diversifying into global markets and appreciate being able to use a single shipping partner.”
Fast and secure to any place
GLS Ireland’s quality and security standards for the GlobalBusinessParcel are just as high as with any other GLS parcel. Access to a high-performing global distribution network ensures fast transit times. At the same time, senders can track their shipments online, all the way from collection to delivery.
Additional service for more flexibility
In order to simplify and speed up all processes, GLS takes care of all customs formalities, if requested. Senders are given access to a dedicated online tool developed by GLS which combines numerous practical features for shipping to third countries. Newly established interfaces – e.g. to Irish customs – increase the efficiency and speed of services. Another benefit: those who already ship with GLS in Europe have a single point of contact, one dispatch system and one label for all of their parcels.
“GlobalBusinessParcel makes shipping around the world easy”, explains Swen Krüger. “We are glad to see that it is received well by our customers. The additional offer increases their flexibility and supports them in strengthening their market position and growing internationally.”
 Deliveries do not take place to countries where the political situation is highly unstable
Ireland, nation of exports
Within one generation, Ireland has developed into a very open economy, which allowed exports to surge and the country to thrive. Today, almost half of exports go to countries outside of Europe and almost a third to the US. These commercial ties are reflected in the demand for GlobalBusinessParcel.
