GLS Group well prepared for Brexit

On January 31, 2020 the United Kingdom left the EU. From this date, the UK is no longer a member of the EU. However, there is a transitional period until the end of 2020 for the movement of goods between the EU and the UK. The customs status of the UK after this period will depend on the ongoing negotiations and agreements with the EU. One outcome may be that the UK will be given the status of a third country from the EU's point of view. This means that the movement of goods and thus parcel dispatch between the EU and the UK will in this case be subject to customs supervision from January 1, 2021 at the earliest.

GLS has for many years been customers’ reliable partner for parcel deliveries across Europe and the world. This is why GLS customers rely on existing, proven processes for smooth imports and exports, including of deliveries requiring customs clearance. Thus GLS will give its customers extensive support for shipments to the UK also from 2021.

All relevant information can be found in the Export Guide. As a subsidiary of the British Royal Mail offers GLS additional special solutions to the customers.
