GLS shipping with shipcloud

GLS integration made easy

With shipcloud, you can quickly and easily connect GLS to your store, ERP or inventory management system. To do this, use our RESTful API or one of the plug-ins already available.

This enables you to create shipping labels automatically from your existing system. There is no need to laboriously type in names and addresses or import address data via CSV files. With integrated shipment tracking, you and your customers also know exactly where the shipment is at all times.

Do you need a fast and safe delivery partner? With GLS (General Logistics Systems), you can ship especially larger or heavy parcels quick and easy.

The benefits of shipcloud's integration for GLS:

  • Use our GLS business rates
  • Alternatively, use your own GLS business rates
  • Take advantage of automatic shipment tracking
  • Ship your parcels in no time at all without complex integration projects
You can start using GLS with a few simple steps. Just write us at and tell us how you want to use GLS: By using shipcloud’s business rates or your own GLS contract. Both options are available.
