While I was playing with Wolfram Alpha online calculator, to create double integrals involving negative exponentials and the so-called Gudermannian function, denoted in this post as $\operatorname{gd}(u)$, I wondered that should be possible to get the closed-form of $$\int_0^1\left(\int_0^\infty\frac{\operatorname{gd}(x+y)}{e^{x+y}}dx\right)dy.\tag{1}$$ I believe that $(1)$ hasn't a very nice closed-form (I was trying to define integrals involving these functions with a nice closed-form).

Question. Can you justify/calculate the closed-form of $(1)$? Many thanks.

I used Wolfram Cloud Sandbox

In[1] := Integrate[Integrate[Gudermannian[x+y]/Exp[x+y],{x,0,Infinity}],{y,0,1}]//Simplify//InputForm
Out[1]//InputForm= 1 - Pi^2/24 - Gudermannian[1]/E + Log[2/(1 + E^2)] - PolyLog[2, -E^2]/2
