Offices of GLS Norway to be opened in Oslo
Denmark restructures its operation in Norway
Copenhagen/Oslo, May 15, 2003 – General Logistics Systems Denmark announces the restructuring of its parcel and express distribution operation in Norway. For this purpose GLS has opened new offices in Oslo as GLS Norway effective today. This office functions as a management centre to secure quality standards and uniform handling procedures for its national and international parcel services. GLS Norway accommodates its customers in the Norwegian market through partner agreements with Nor-Cargo Bedriftspakke and Pan Nordic Logistics (PNL). Consequently, the previous agreement with Express Goods has been terminated.
The restructuring of the GLS operation in Norway was decided based upon the need to guarantee high-quality and reliability of services to our customers in the business-to-business sector as well as individual delivery to consumers.
Arne Tirsgaard, Managing Director of GLS Denmark and Chairman for GLS Scandinavia said: “This new partnership with Nor-Cargo Bedriftspakke and our presence in Oslo with GLS Norway give us the tools we need to run an effective business-to-business parcel distribution. In addition, the agreement with PNL will allow us a countrywide access to all Norwegian consumers. In this respect we will not only improve our national services, but also strengthen GLS’ position as a leading player in the European parcel market.
Commenting on the deal Konrad Kuhlman, Managing Director of Nor-Cargo said: “We look forward to this new cooperation with GLS to provide them and their customers with a reliable and high-quality parcel distribution service in Norway.”
