How to label a shipment

The label is your package’s ID card

GLS Germany at the Brandenburger Tor

To send your package, you can choose from various options – book a collection from your home or office; go to a GLS office; or use our Weblabeling IT solution. Always indicate the recipient’s full correct address on all boxes to be shipped. The GLS parcel label containing all the details about the shipment can be affixed by GLS staff after collection; alternatively, senders using Weblabeling can prepare the shipment by printing the labels themselves.
