The report begins with the organizational overview where I have done my internship. So while doing my internship I found the clod chain management process so interesting and ended up making report on this highly significant topic based on the present global marketplace. And Nowadays in Bangladesh it has become a significant competitive advantage to maintain a highly efficient cold chain management. As it gives the opportunities to save energy, working hour and most importantly value of the product. As being in the Quick Service Restaurant industry, it is most import to maintain the food value. And for that the value chain must be strong and efficient. There are many factor related to the topic. From the perspective of Bangladesh, many complications are there that hampers the process very badly. However, if the planning is being done properly, the chances of bring in a faulty and risky position reduces by high percentages. So while planning factors like demand, shelf life, quality assurance, microbiology, logistics support need to consider at the high context. As I work as a demand planning executive and being a planner I tried to emphasis on and analysis each and every factors that are inseparable from the cold chain process. Moreover, I have found few key implication based on Bangladesh perspective. And tried to come up with some sustainable solutions. Furthermore, being a part of supply chain management, cold chain has become very important for so many industries like food, pharmaceuticals, fisheries and agro. And proper optimization of cold chain can help our economy grow faster. However, as there few implications present for the time being, once these are solved it will increase the profit margin as well as the customer satisfaction by adding greater benefits by reducing total system cost an energy. I have interviewed and done a survey on few corporates from Jubilant golden harvest limited, Golden Harvest Agro Limited, Incepta Pharmaceuticals and Jubilant Foodworks India to know how cold chain is adding value to the product life cycle, what are the obstacles and what can be done to overcome the obstacles.
