Supply chain management at Orion Tea Company Limited
MetadataShow full item record
In the 21st Century a new concept is emerging rapidly around the globe and making its way into several organizations day by day. That concept is known as “Supply Chain Management”. This concept is still very new from the perspective on Bangladeshi companies but these organizations are realizing the fact that there should be a department by the name of Supply Chain Management. One of those companies which has a separate department for supply chain is Orion Tea Company Ltd which a concern of Orion Group, the very famous Industry giant in Bangladesh. I joined OTCL as an Intern on Sunday, 21st January 2018. I joined the Supply Chain department of this organization based on my academic major course in BBA. Now I have completed this report for my graduation to be completed. I was not only an intern in Orion Tea Company Ltd (OTCL) but also managed the SCM activities of Orion Consumer Products Ltd (OCPL). A question might arise that why my report not includes detailed account of OCPL. For this I would say OCPL just started in January 2018 and there isn’t much development on the organization more than what I have mentioned in this report and other than the little pieces of information the rest activities of OCPL are fully same with OTCL. OTCL has launched seven diversified ranges of Tea along with Tea bag by the brand name “Jafflong”. This report is basically very informative which heavily sheds light on the supply chain of the company as well as the activities by the entire department. Apart from the report’s focus on supply chain, there is also scope for knowledge about the entire organization as a whole from its beginning to the very problems the company is facing along with recommendations which can help the company be a better performer in the tea industry. The attractive part of this report is that this is the first internship report written on this organization and the very first intern happens to be me. Considering this fact I have gathered knowledge outside the SCM department as required for anyone who wants to learn about this company and its operations. When discussing about the activities I did, I also mentioned about how they work beyond my control or interference or after my work is done and also the procedures through which I have worked maintaining a strict format of rules. I have also mentioned the challenges of being a part of a completely new organization like this one and in what ways can this be improved. Challenges or constraints will always be there in any organization but there will also exist scope to improve and do better. Existence of weakness is very natural but there should be enough strength to overcome those weaknesses. Lastly there is a recap of what is discussed in the report but with more of a concise and recommended manner.
