GLS starts Irish express service

GLS Ireland is to launch a guaranteed national express delivery service from tomorrow (1st September).

The service will handle parcels up to 30 kilos and will guarantee delivery by 5pm the next working day  GLS said this product could be easily supplemented with various other GLS services.

In many parts of the country a 12:00 service is also being offered, meaning that goods can be delivered before midday.

GLS is part of Royal Mail and offers services through wholly-owned and partner companies in 36 European states. The GLS system consists of 38 central transhipment points, 665 depots and 12,500 employees. Some 16,950 vehicles transport 345 million parcels annually for 220,000 customers throughout Europe. In the financial year 2009/10, GLS achieved revenues of 1.7 billion euros.
