The Children's Dreams campaign takes place for the seventh year and this time the Christmas wishes of the little ones are being fulfilled especially actively. Out of almost 4 thousand wishes received, 68 percent have already been chosen to be fulfilled. Nevertheless, some children are still waiting for their dreams to come true, therefore as the celebrations are approaching the organisers of the project are asking everyone to remember the poorest families as well.
“We are incredibly happy for the great success of this project and people's generosity. Today's results are excellent but Christmas is still far away so we expect an increase not only in the number of gift givers but also of the kids waiting for them. Even though it's still hard to feel the Christmas spirit right now, our mood is affected by autumn, but the sooner we take care of the gifts for the little ones, the more assured we can be that they will reach the children on time. After all, when the festive period begins buying and sending gifts will get harder and harder, even if we have reliable delivery partners” says Julius Gregorauskas, the pioneer of the Children's Dreams project.
The social initiative taking place since 2010 has been growing every year, therefore in order to make it easier for the dreams to true a few years ago the project was joined by parcel delivery company DPD Lithuania. The company offers free delivery service via the Pickup parcel stations for all those who are making children's dreams come true.
“We are glad we're able to contribute to this wonderful initiative helping children to reach their dreams. We believe that free gift delivery encourages more people to fulfil children's dreams so we've been engaged in this partnership for several years now and would like to wish everyone to join forces and create joy for the kids in need. Also we encourage everyone to fulfil the kids' dreams before the Christmas season is in full swing – this way we will be sure that the gifts arrive to the little ones on time” says Gabrielius Bilevičius, Head of Sales and Marketing for the Baltic states.
According to Gabrielius Bilevičius, last year around 2500 gifts were delivered via the DPD Pickup parcel stations and this year it is expected that joyful Christmas moments will be delivered to even more kids.
The Children's Dreams project will take place until the Christmas day and the gifts should be sent via the Pickup parcel stations until December 14 – this way they will reach the children before the holidays. Dreams packed in cardboard boxes should be delivered to any of the 76 parcel stations that can be found both in the largest cities and smaller towns.

The international parcel delivery company DPD Lithuania is the first delivery company to offer customers the possibility of paying for purchases made in e-shops with a bank card at the time of delivery.
Gabrielius Bilevičius, DPD Lithuania Sales & Marketing Director, Baltics, notes: “There were several reasons to introduce card payment on delivery. The volume of on-line shopping is increasing rapidly in Lithuania: during the first half of this year on-line sales increased by 34.4 per cent, while 8 out of 10 Lithuanian residents now use a card to pay for goods as compared to the same period last year.
The other important reason is that about half of all on-line shoppers only pay for their purchases when they receive them. With this in mind we understood that in order to meet the needs of the expanding e-commerce market and the expectations of purchasers we needed to offer flexible payment options at the time of delivery.”
Vilnius residents can already pay the courier with a card at the time of delivery. In a few days this option will also be available to Kaunas residents, and before long it will be available throughout Lithuania. DPD Lithuania is introducing this service in cooperation with Swedbank.
Swedbank representatives note that by offering clients several different means of payment they are offering customers a more efficient service. The other advantage is that the use of e-payments frees up the Bank’s employees for other work and also avoids potential errors that arise when working with cash. Being able to choose how to pay for purchases may also contribute to greater customer satisfaction.
Deimantas Trumpickas, Head of Cash Management Sales Support Department at Swedbank, claims that “During the last five years people’s payment habits have changed: according to surveys, currently more than half use their card 2-3 times per week or more often. People choose to pay by card because they do not need to worry about whether they have enough cash for a specific payment, to wait for change or to check whether they receive the right change. Thus, the decision to create conditions for paying by card at the time of delivery was in fact timely“.E-shoppers can still pay by cash at the time of delivery but now they have more choice.

During the first quarter of this year DPD Lithuania sent by 63% more international parcels, as compared to the first quarter of 2015. The growth in the number of parcels was accompanied by the increase in the company’s revenue for export shipments – they grew by 40%.
Robertas Vilkaitis, CEO of DPD Lithuania, says: “The beginning of this year demonstrated successful results that fulfil our business ambitions. We have significantly increased the number of parcels and revenue; therefore, we will continue pursuing strategic goals set. The Lithuanian e-commerce market is continuously growing and discovering new geographic areas for the expansion of business. Therefore, the number of international parcels in this segment is also increasing and hence their volumes in Lithuania. During this quarter the number of e-commerce parcels delivered internally increased by 26%, as compared to the corresponding period last year. Given the fact that the forecasts for the e-commerce market growth are far more moderate and suggest approximately 12%, this is a great result for the first quarter.”
Besides, this year DPD Lithuania has launched significant cooperation with the giants of fashion goods retailers, who opened online shops in all Baltic countries’ markets. They use not only the service of delivery by courier, but also offer a solution that is very simple and convenient for online purchasers – return of items via DPD Pickup points.
R. Vilkaitis states that “We are proud that international e-commerce market players trust DPD and have chosen us as their key logistics partners in the Baltic countries. The continuous development of delivery solutions, investment in the efficiency of IT systems and the expansion of the DPD Pickup points network resulted in the situation that today we are valuable partners in e-commerce business.”
The sales revenue during this year’s first quarter increased by 13%, as compared to the same period in 2015. On a whole, the success of the first quarter is the result of the work done during the last year and the continuation of purposeful activities – in 2016 the company increased its sales revenue by 4.2% – up to 20.7 million euro and delivered more than 4.4 million parcels both internally and internationally.
DPD Lithuania belongs to the international transportation network. The company has been operating in Lithuania since 1998 and joined the international DPD network in 2002.
