The new GLS Solar ParcelBoxes are powered exclusively by solar panels and thus offer an environmentally friendly parcel transport solution that can be used in applications where there is a problem with the electricity connection. Another advantage is their ease of use, which does not require the installation of any application or the use of a smartphone.
These boxes are fully reliable in all seasons and are used for both picking up and sending packages. Compared to the current GLS ParcelBoxes, they only allow cash on delivery to be paid in advance via the GoPay online gateway. You can find more information about all our pick-up points here: GLS Parcel Box | GLS Czech Republic (gls-group.eu)
For the 13th year in a row, GLS has been the general partner of the traditional charity project Donate a Toy, which is organized by managers in wheelchairs from the Tango association. All you have to do is click in the wish database again and GLS couriers will arrange free gift transport for children in children's homes and clients of social care institutions.
Last year, GLS transported more than six tonnes of gifts with a total value of over CZK 6.1 million. Donors can register on the app.daruj-hracku.cz website and make not only themselves happy, but especially children and people with various disabilities at Christmas.
Last week, we saw almost double the number of shipments handled (91%) in connection with the Black Friday discount event compared to the beginning of November. This year's seasonal increase started earlier than last year, with a 22% increase at the beginning of the month. People are also more likely to pick up parcels directly at pick-up points and boxes, where the carrier has registered an even higher increase.
We recommend ordering gifts from e-shops no later than December 18. If you take over the transport by Wednesday, December 20, 2023, we can guarantee delivery by Christmas Eve.
More information about the Christmas season can be found here.

Do you want to win a laptop, a smart watch, Lego or an original GLS winter cap? All you have to do is pick up your parcel at any of the 3,000 GLS Pick-up points and register its number for the draw on the competition website. Detailed information and the competition form can be found at GLS: Christmas Contest.
Christmas is also about helping the less lucky one. And that's why for each parcel registered in our competition, we will contribute CZK 5 to fulfill the selected wish from Daruj hračku.
The more parcels delivered to GLS Pick-up points, the more joy we will bring to children from children's homes.
