The GLS Spirit

At GLS, social responsibility and continuous improvement are top priorities. Here are a few examples:

Ecofriendly Headquarters

The GLS group is a responsible leader in the transportation sector, as can be seen from our LEED-certified headquarters. Take a virtual tour of our offices on your smart phone or tablet. Our goal with this interactive tour is to share our vision of smart, sustainable development with you:


Community Partnerships

At GLS, we deliver more to our communities than packages. It is important to partner with different organizations to make a difference. We are helping to power the fight against breast cancer as the official transportation provider for the CURE foundation. GLS has also been joining the Make a Wish Foundation as a corporate ambassador for many of their events. Every year, GLS encourages its employees to take part in fun activities to collect donations for the Foundation.


Employee Programs

We are committed to recognizing our employees for their outstanding work and are always looking for ways to improve our working conditions. To achieve this goal, we have introduced a number of programs to encourage success and allow our employees to maintain a good work-life balance. The yearly Circle of Excellence is one example. We work to continuously improve these programs and create new ones.

Environmental Protection

Protecting our environment is a guiding principle at GLS and one that is brought to life by employees across the Group. In 2008, GLS launched its ThinkGreen environmental initiative in order to coordinate and proactively foster the diverse array of activities within the GLS Group. Across all GLS national subsidiaries, Environmental Officers ensure the implementation of Group-wide environmental protection measures.
