International

Wherever you want to send a letter or a parcel, we can deliver. Our outlook and our networks are international – we provide letter and parcel services to and from countries around the world through reciprocal arrangements with other postal businesses.

Our pan-European business, General Logistics Systems (GLS) is our gateway to Europe. As one of the largest ground-based deferred parcel delivery providers in Europe its network covers 37 countries through wholly-owned and partner companies. It is globally connected through contractual agreements.

Services for you

Our international mail business is growing, as borderless online retailing grows. We help companies of all sizes export their goods as far as China, and all points in between. Our customers range from major online retailers to entrepreneurial start-ups. We’re here to help, whatever your size.

Our services for international business customers include:

  • International Business Airmail, using a franking machine or account to send mail worldwide
  • International Business Tracked & Signed, a fully tracked service from posting to delivery overseas, which requires a signature on delivery
  • International Signed For, offering reassurance that the goods you sent have arrived
  • International Goods Returns, enabling retailers to offer their international customers a free returns option, removing one of the biggest barriers to purchasing goods overseas.
  • Personal customers also use our international delivery service

Global and green

We reach every country in the world consistently and reliably. Our quality targets for delivery are 3-5 days in Europe and 5-7 days for the rest of the world. Our services are good value. We also consider the environment, keeping our carbon footprint to a minimum by using scheduled flights rather than charter flights for our mail.
