First dwarfs started to appear on the streets of Wrocław in 2005. Initially, they mainly resided in the vicinity of the Market Square, but in the course of time, they started to inhabit private properties and company premises all over the city. On 16 April, DHL Parcel acquired its own dwarf: the energetic Deliverius found his home in the premises of the DHL Parcel Wrocław terminal at ul. Bierutowska 75. It welcomes visitors near the entrance to the Customer Service Point.
"This is a lovely tradition. I guess that everybody associates dwarfs with Wrocław today. The idea of making a DHL dwarf came up during the last year's visit of Jerzy Staszelis, Deputy Director for Finance and member of the Management Board of DHL Parcel Polska, in Wrocław. It is said that dwarfs bring good luck, so everybody fancied the idea of having our own dwarf. We are hoping that it will bring good luck both to the Wrocław terminal and the rest of the company," says Madgalena Bugajło, PR & Communications Director at DHL Parcel.
The courier dwarf is a dwarf registered on the official municipal website: www.krasnale.pl. Odlewnia Artystyczna from Wrocław handled the design and the execution of the figurine.
