GLS Austria joins parcel locker network

Royal Mail owned GLS Austria has signed an agreement where GLS Austria customers can access A1-operated parcel stations. These are an alternative to picking up parcels at the 800 GLS ParcelShops across the country.

There are 42 stations run by A1, of which 40 are activated for GLS Austria. Some 32 of those are in Vienna and Lower Austria with the rest in smaller Austrian cities. A1 is expanding its parcel locker network and more will be activated for GLS Austria..

“We are expanding our network to include parcel stations in order to respond to the increasing demand for contactless delivery and shipping options,” explained Christian Schöninger, MD of GLS Austria.

“The greatest possible convenience for our customers and environmentally friendly delivery concepts for the last mile are important to us. The A1 parcel stations ensure even more flexibility and sustainability in delivery. The cooperation with A1 fits perfectly with us and our goals.”
