Singer Bangladesh opened a new refrigerator plant at Savar in Dhaka, The factory is part of International Appliances Ltd, in which majority is owned by Singer, in a joint venture with a large international home appliance manufacturer based in China. The company operates their sales mainly by sourcing, production and warehousing. This sourcing is done from the sales department, which includes three channels called Retail, Wholesale and Corporate. All three channels give their yearly demand based on previous year’s sales record. Basically the forecasts are done from this sourcing. From product sourcing to warehousing, the whole process where product sourcing, production, warehousing and distribution is operated successfully is the main Sales operation management process. And also the E-Commerce operation process that Singer has started back in 2016, the process, how it runs from ordering online to delivering the product to the customers hand, I have tried to bring out in my report within my scope.
