Hi guys ,

I have joined this company as a project manager .

My objective was to break into logistic and supply chain field .

The CEO of the company told me to learn as I please , at the same time the General Manger who's the right hand of the CEO have a a very tough personality to deal with , learning from him need a huge amount of passion .

He always keep telling me you will not succeed in landing any project for us since you don't have the experience .

From past 2 months I learn quite a bit , but sometime I get stuck in when I hear some technical term being used .

I need a complete course , from which I can learn the sea freight , any suggestion ?


Thank you ..

I can fully understand your plight because I had the same experience to man a warehouse with nary an experience. What I did in order to learn the ropes is to check on the terminology. You have to know the words and terms that are used in the industry so you will not be confused. Next is the operation that you can observe from end to end just to have a complete idea of what the business is all about. Don’t be intimidated in communicating with your superiors because you can learn a lot from them provided you have the patience to ask what you need to know.

I suggest you get complete knowledge of your logistic market first. Because anyone in his place won't bet on you blindly. Get him in confidence and you got it. This might sound like a pitch but we have some reports like SWOT analysis to guide you in this process. And if you want to know the market, you will need some stats to get a clear idea. These reports help. Feel free to enquire.

Hope it helps :)

I agree that for a newcomer in the industry to be accepted, there needs to be an introduction. The easiest is to ask around for organizations or clubs related to the industry or maybe the chamber of commerce can help to know the big shots in the industry. That is the most proper way to get in.
