GLS France is expanding its Mediterranean network with a new depot in Béziers. The site has been up and running since the start of April 2020.

The investment volume for fitting out the building amounted to some 200,000 euros. “With the new facility, we are paving the way for future growth in this attractive region,” explains Nicolas Robert, Managing Director of GLS France. Some 1,600 parcels a day can be processed at the 2,500 m² site, with GLS offering later collection times to meet increasing customer demand.
Sustainable, state-of-the-art technology
GLS is serving the region with 18 delivery routes from the new site. A fully motorised, 80-metre-long conveyor belt system boosts productivity and makes life easier for employees, transport partners and delivery drivers. As part of the Group-wide ThinkGreen initiative, solar panels have been fitted at the site, with all the energy generated being used at the depot.
