GLS Spain introduces PharmaService

GLS Spain is the sixth GLS subsidiary offering GDP-compliant shipping to its customers. The health and pharmaceutical industry is considered one of Spain’s most important economic sectors with further growth potential.

“We are observing an increased demand for qualified services", says Luis Doncel, General Manager Iberia at GLS. “This has prompted us to support our customers also in the shipment of medical products with a tailor-made service that meets particularly high quality and safety standards.”

In May 2020, all depots and hubs of GLS Spain have been certified by DEKRA – in accordance with the European guidelines of Good Distribution Practice of medicinal products for human use. The auditing company thus attests to the Spanish subsidiary particularly reliable, safe and hygienic procedures to ensure a strictly monitored transport chain.

The PharmaService for non-temperature-controlled products offered by GLS Spain is not only compliant with the strict European Directive 2013/C 343/01, but offers even more advantages. Business and private recipients can have their parcels delivered by 10 a.m. or 2 p.m. They also have the option of confirming receipt of the parcel digitally on their own mobile device via the ContactlessSign solution.

The shipments are handed over exclusively to the designated recipient. An alternative delivery, for example to a neighbour or a ParcelShop, is therefore not possible.

GLS holds GDP certifications in Belgium, Denmark, Germany, France, Ireland, and now also in Spain. In addition, the quality and environmental management system of the GLS Group is certified throughout Europe according to the internationally recognized standards ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.
