Amsterdam, 10. November 2020. The quality and environmental management system of the GLS Group has been recertified in Europe for another three years in accordance with ISO 9001 and 14001. GDP certification has also been confirmed in five countries of the international parcel service provider, and a new GDP seal has been added for Spain.

The certificates confirm that the GLS Group aligns its actions daily with the high quality and environmental standards and continuously improves processes. Dr Karl Pfaff, Chairman of the Management Board of GLS Germany, received the certificates from Dr Rolf Krökel, Managing Director DEKRA Certificates GmbH, on behalf of the GLS Group on 30 October 2020.

For the GLS companies in Belgium, Denmark, Germany, France and Ireland the certificates according to Good Distribution Practice (GDP Guideline 2013/C 343/01) were successfully renewed. In Spain, GLS also fulfils the strict safety and hygiene requirements for the non-temperature-controlled transport of pharmaceuticals. GLS Spain received the GDP certificate at the end of May. This means that GLS now offers GDP-compliant services for the health and pharmaceutical industries in six countries. In Germany DEKRA simultaneously confirmed the effectiveness of GLS's HACCP concept.
