Our Story

The Dicom story began in 1968 in Quebec and officially became GLS in 2018 upon acquisition by General Logistics Systems B.V. (GLS), part of Royal Mail Group, in Europe. For more than 50 years, our values are at the heart of our organization and are reflected in all that we do for our employees, partners and customers. As part of the GLS Group, our family is simply getting bigger!
