About General Logistics Systems, US:

Have you been looking for a ground-floor opportunity at a rapidly growing company, but feel that start-ups are too risky? Does offering a disruptive alternative to top logistics carriers sound appealing but the idea of working for an easily-acquired small business, not so much? Are you ready to join an industry undergoing a digital revolution, where a once-dusty, back-office function is transforming into a strategic, tech-based battleground for customers?

General Logistics Systems (GLS) is an established provider of time-critical package and freight shipping solutions that has been operating in more than 40 countries across Europe for over 30 years, generating annual revenue totaling well above $4 billion.

We've taken our unique but proven business model stateside, where we intend to shake up the market with a truly combined express parcel, premier less-than-truckload (LTL), dedicated and freight brokerage offering that's faster and more flexible than our competitors'. We passionately believe that our success depends on our customers' success, which informs the 'why' and 'how' of everything we do. At this pivotal stage in our growth journey, we are looking for like-minded individuals to help us build a new kind of logistics company...one that makes customers' lives easier and plays an active role in their achievements.
