Der Kurier

The courier was founded in 1979 as a city dispatch centre for courier services based on the model of London and New York bicycle couriers. With the founding of OverNight Service GmbH, based in Hamburg, DER KURIER now independently offers nationwide overnight transport. Following the establishment of a strategic alliance with the parcel service provider German Parcel in what is now GLS Germany, GLS becomes the sole shareholder of the DER KURIER Group in 1999, operating under the name DER KURIER GmbH & Co. KG.

DER KURIER stands for a dense, nationwide courier and express network in Germany, with around 250 independent stations. Thanks to its strong regional partners, DER KURIER is always close to you.

Outside Germany, DER KURIER has numerous established partners in their markets. Austria, Switzerland, France, the Benelux region, Great Britain, Denmark, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary are directly connected to the DER KURIER network. For all other countries, we cooperate with our parent company GLS to get consignments to their destination quickly.
