Radical Storage and GLS Spain partner to revolutionize and expand luggage storage in 2024

Radical Storage, a global luggage storage network, announces a new partnership with GLS Spain, a leading parcel provider, to greatly expand the number of locations available for luggage storage across Spain. 

With this GLS Spain collaboration, international and domestic tourists to Spanish cities and towns will benefit from an expanded network and extra services that the parcel provider offers. 

The use of GLS Spain’s 5,300+ locations will boost Radical Storage’s existing luggage storage network across the country, growing to more than 7,300 locations for convenient storage of luggage and other personal items. 

Radical Storage has seen its busiest year-to-date increasing its partner network to now serve over 800 cities around the world, and working with thousands of new businesses. 

To find one of the many Radical Storage luggage locations across Spain, customers can search for the closest drop-off location via the Radical Storage app or website. Users can use the convenient and central locations to store an item of luggage for €5 per day with no weight or size restrictions applied. 

Alessandro Seina, CEO and Co-founder, of Radical Storage, commented on the partnership: 

“This partnership with GLS Spain will allow customers visiting the many beautiful Spanish towns and cities easier access to thousands more convenient luggage storage locations. International and domestic tourists alike can use the GLS Spain network to store their luggage for a day trip and send any souvenirs home at the same time, giving them more time to explore, eat, and be entertained. Tourists will be able to safely store their luggage, sports equipment, and other goods using GLS Spain locations in addition to our existing network of luggage storage angels.”

Commenting on the partnership, Luis Doncel, Group Region MD Iberia & Ireland at GLS Spain, said: 

“This alliance marks an important milestone in our OOH (out-of-home delivery) service offering, strengthening our position in the logistics sector and enriching the experience of our customers; especially those looking for flexible and secure luggage storage solutions.”
