GLS New hub in Milan

Published by:

 

GLS Italy invests in Milan in new main site and state-of-the-art technology. The new site offers more space and automatic sorting of parcels.

GLS Italy has consolidated its strengths in Milan and grown in size. Italy’s second-largest parcel and express service provider has moved into a new main site in the southeast of the city. The San Giuliano Milanese site is equipped with state-of-the-art sorting technology and has more space. Customers benefit from fast, reliable processing – both nationally and internationally.

Since August, GLS has been processing consignments here on an area covering around 12,000 m2. Parcels are sorted by a fully-automatic sorter that is able to handle up to 8000 items an hour. The conveyor system is installed at a height of 3 metres, enabling large packing pieces and pallets to be simultaneously processed at ground level.

GLS uses 60 ramps at the new complex for loading, with more than 13,500 m2 of area available for parking and manoeuvring. Moreover, international goods are cleared for customs, with a customs warehouse integrated into the site.

As the complex also has more office space, GLS is planning by January 2013 to bring together several units onto the site that were previously spread across Milan. The International division offices have already moved to the site, and GLS Italy’s head office will follow at the turn of the year. In total, 200 GLS employees will work at the new site, which is strategically located on the ring road connected to the city’s two highways and also close to the A1.
