What is GSO?
GSO was short for Golden State Overnight Delivery Service and was founded in 1995 to end high delivery rates for shipments coming into California. This West Coast package delivery company was bought by the international shipping group General Logistics Systems (GLS) in October 2016.
As a part of this, all GSO trucks were given an updated look and feel with blue-chip logos alongside other changes like updating the GSO Package Tracker.
With reduced transit times throughout Western America, GLS (GSO) offer a variety of delivery options, from Ground and Freight services to Priority Mail with significantly lower prices than national carriers.
Plus, when you're ready to get your package, they offer a variety of services. You'll have options such as scheduled pickup and drop-offs at one location or on an intermittent basis with the On-Call option for when it's most convenient for you.
Advanced Tracking (formerly GSO Package Tracker) is a great way to make sure your packages are being tracked. With the new filters, you can narrow down where they're going by ship-to company or city.
