I have tried to gathered information about the achievement and gap between SGL and freight forward industry and assess the opportunities to grow the company as a whole. There are certain factors that perpetuate our organization one of the leading in the industry and as an agent of DB Schenker, gives us brand name in the market and easy access to potential consumers. Because DB Schenker has vast network in the world. Third largest in Air Freight and second largest in Ocean Freight and first in Rail Freight in the world in terms of revenue and Tue. The aim of SGL and in particular Schenker is to provide its customer smooth operation support with minimum error from customer to buyer end. SGL responsible for delivering customers goods intact and untouched. And provide continues support as long as it required to satisfy the ultimate customers. My job as an ocean freight executive and system support for last 2 years has given me valuable insight into the reality of the freight forwarding industry regarding Bangladesh. In addition to my job responsibilities at SGL, I am expected to submit reports of our sales to my line manager within strict deadlines.

The report continues to assess the organization through a SWOT analysis. I have further identified a few areas of growth for both the Ocean & Air team and the organization as a whole. The suggested ways of overcoming those issues and challenges have been elaborated in the recommendations section.
