1.1 Introduction

In Bangladesh the Ready Made garments (RMG) sector currently earns 75% of the
total export revenue of the country. This is the most profitable industry at present,
although we have scarcity in terms of natural resource as compared to our
competitor, namely china and India, our advantages in human resource can not be
matched by other country. The biggest sources of these sector seems to be its

5
ability to assimilate the abundant labor force in to the production process if the
sector needed to increase, the labor skilled should be honed up to increase
efficiency and productivity. This will help to reduce cost to a large extant.
Bangladesh has past a decade with advantage GDP growth of around 5%.RMG
industry has directly and indirectly created jobs for 12 million workers, and helps
in greatly reducing unemployment in our stagnant economy. Most important the
RMG boom has helped greatly in the empowerment of women most women came
from underprivileged family, village .This sector has enable women to became
confident that they also support their families. This sector has great contribution
to the emancipation and empowerment of women. Since almost 80%of the
workforce of the RMG factories is female workers and it is estimate that another
10 million people are employed in production activities that bare indirectly related
to RMG industry? The RMG industry does not have forward integration either. The
technology of the industry are adopted from develop nation.

Function of the merchandiser

Merchandising can be defined as the action of selling goods by advertising or


demonstrating them. Merchandising can be both direct and indirect. Through direct
merchandising the company sells to a customer of another country. Some time the
company merchandising directly in the foreign markets. Indirect merchandising
generally means that the company sells to a buyer in the home country who in turn

20
exports the product. They also communicate with the buyer. Merchandisers are used to
inform buyer about their daily work progress through using internet and website.

Fundamental skills

Merchandisers have to have various necessary skill and knowledge about the garments
accessories because garments accessories play a very significant role in the garments
manufacturing. Merchandisers play a crucial task in the readymade garments industry,
so they are educated about the some garments accessories such as fabric and yarn, type
of fabric, quality of the fabric size of the yarn, dyeing method fabric finishing

Communication technique

The company and buyer relation depends on the merchandiser because merchandiser
has to correspond with the buyer. Communication involves a great deal than just work.
Communication with respect buyers and follows up for each 7 every export would
have to be assured in order to maintain successful business relation. It may be through
internet of face to face situation. cost price of the product: after receiving order from
the buyer the company want to make a deal with the buyer that they call a meeting
where they are discussing about the product pattern cost and of raw materials and
delivery time, in that meting buyer show their own sample of the product to the
company. And what type of equipment or accessories they will use for manufacture
the product the company illustrates it. That very serious for the merchandiser because
they make a decision about the cost at that meeting

Paper pattern & size specification

As a merchandiser does not essentially need to know hoe to make patterns or to create
size stipulation. This is the accountably of the production department. But the
knowledge to analysis them and detect mistake or something important being mission
is great important. Size specticition which call ‘size spec’ are usually given by the
buyer who may copy them from other buyer or he has a pattern maker that creates
them. When first receive a size space merchandiser should look it over carefully to
judge if something important is mission, or if find something there which will cause
trouble that merchandiser should bring to the buyer attention with their suggestions.
After they have taken care of them, merchandiser should give the spec to factory for
making samples. Merchandiser should inform to the buyer to work out some
improvement on the size spec .For that reason buyer should appreciate company’s
watchfulness and beneficial suggestion to develop his merchandise.

Packing

Packing should be supposed to simple but essential for continue merchandising. But its
signification to a merchandiser must have adequate knowledge about the packing
system, because the buyer also given a sketch how to fold the product and they also

21
given the shape of the container. If the merchandiser are not conscious about the
packing they may wasting a lot of money on packing materials and freights on
shipping. This is the last stage of the manufacture after complete the packing its ready
for shipment or freights. Shipment can be fulfill by the air cargo or sea freight.

Major obstacle of collecting raw materials from foreign country

Lack of proper communication

Some time it is difficult to collected raw materials from other country if the channels
of communication are not proper. High price charge by the foreign company. It is a
major problem if the seller charge very high price comparing with other.

MAILO not come just in time

Milo means mail order. if the mail is not reached in time conducting arrangement it
may create problem.

Problem in exchange rate

Exchange rate is vital issue to contract,

Inflation rate

Inflation rate is also important matter concerning the period of collecting raw
materials.

Scarcity of accessories

Some time it is difficult to collected the raw materials from foreign country if the
accessories

Transportation cost:

Transportation cost is also important factors for conducting the collect of raw materials
from foreign country.

Political problem:

22
Political problem of a country is also significant condition of collected the raw
materials.

Key success factor for merchandiser:

1. Experienced: who has been in business for considerably for a long time.

2. Reputed: who has long term buyer relation.

3. Successful: buyer are willing to place continuous order.

4. Good management with farsightedness: experienced and committed


management

5. Focused towards constant up graded and improving, production facilities.

6. Financial strength of the group: Who may sustain in the cut through price
war situation.

7. Buyer Diversification: Who has diver sited based on buyer as well as


destination.

8. Adherence to international labor standards With buyer becoming more and


more demanding about the quality of knife being given to garments workers,
manufactures have to ensure that they adhere to strength labor law, factory
construction standards etc.

Cause of falling shipment:


1. If l may not properly do then sometime shipment may cancel by the buyer.
2. Some time shipment mat fail increase of product, if foreign buyer may control
their quality by their own quality controller (qc) and if they found any fault in a
single unit of product.
3. If the order product may not delivered with in due time then shipment they fall.
4. If all the quality product is not appropriate in terms of unit then the buyer may
return their received shipment.
5. If accessories may not used in an appetite manner.
6. If production process may not done in an appropriate manner in term’s of
chemicals and other accessoriates then shipnment cancels.
7. On that condiation if manufacturer may not properly follow buyer terms and
condiation then shipment cancel.

23
5.1 marketing concept of these company

Also I learned about the marketing environment of “Byrial appeals” that when the
company management team would like to build a relationship with the buyer or
maintain relationship with the buyer in that time the company affected by some
environment factor of the company. Making a relationship with the buyer, marketing
manager cannot do this alone.

5.2 The company

When the merchandisers received a purchase order from the buyer must inform the top
management of the company other department of the company interrelated with the
decision of the top management. Finance is determined how much fund is used for
carries out order. All of the department must link with the merchandising department
plan and action.

5.3 Marketing intermediaries

Marketing intermediaries are helping the company to promote and distribution the
products. Include with the physical distribution firms and the financial intermediaries.
The company needs to make contact with the transportation firms for the shipment.

5.3.1 Suppliers

Suppliers are almost important part for any manufacture company. Supply are
providing the essential raw materials, which needed for the company to produce the
product. If suppliers make any problem such as delay to supply the raw materials it can
badly affect merchandise section.

5.3.2 Competitor

When the company goes to contract with the buyer then at first think about their
competitors. The merchandising ensure that will provide better service the there
competitor. The company always gathers information about their competitor.

product. The company included with the business markets where buyer buy goods for
further processing.

Conclusion and recommendation

Ready made garments business is the largest source of export earning of Bangladesh.
The beginning of ready made garments sector was not so good in our country. At
first R. R. Apparels Ltd was starting its business in a small form. Its import and
export activities were limited within some countries. Recently, R. R. Apparels Ltd
raises the boundary of their business and tries to handle its import and export
activities. To conduct import and export activities, the company directly related to
some other organization like bank, EPB, BGMEA etc and tries to maintain all the
formalities of import and export activities from those organization.

This industry brings so many possibilities for the people of Bangladesh. Though it
has all the facilities, working environment, labor, skill and many other supporting
variables but this sector did not develop in our country expectedly. There are some
problems in R. R. Apparels Ltd to develop its business more like illegal practice in
different governmental offices, lack of better transportation system and lack of
modern working system of different organization related with import and export
activities of R. R. Apparels Ltd and many more.

Actually governmental intervention in this sector is very much essential. If


government create better opportunities for the owner of the garments company in
case of import and export activities like faster Customs activities, install modern
technology, change the old Procedure of official activities etc then it will better for
import and export activities of R. R. Apparels Ltd. Beside this the company needs to
ensure their effectiveness in all the activities to perform better in this sector.

7.2 Recommendations
As Byrial appeals is a commercial organization in our country and wanted to make a
surplus over their business, they needs to take some initial steps to solve their existing
problem. Though the officials of the company were gave positive information about
the company in most of the cases. Bur I think they need to immediately focus on their
problematic areas. According to my point of view I point out some significant
recommendation in their perspective. I believe that if they can take initial step to solve
that problem, I hope that they will be able to remove their problem. Some of the major
recommendations are given below-
• The company needs to maintain all the rules and regulation of import activities
properly that is taken by our government for all of the garments company.
Because the mean value of this issue is 3.7 that is in moderate position. Though
it is in moderate position, the company needs to improve from this position.
• Buyer is the king of ready made garments business. So that the company’s
needed to continue a better a relationship with all of their existing buyer and
tries extend this relationship with other new buyer.
• In case of export duty, the mean value is 2.36 that are too low. So that the
company needs to pay attention in this sector. Otherwise the government can
take any type of legal action against the company.
• According to survey and research it is found that the performance of the notify
party that means C & F agents is not good. In of research the mean value of
this sector is 2.267 and the value of standard deviation is so low that is .827.
For this reason the company needs bring change in their notify party.
• The information section of the company is not strong. Because most of the
officials of the company agreed in this regard. For this reason officer of the
company can not effectively and timely communicate with different
organization.
• The company needs to hire more skilled and experienced merchandising and
commercial employee to effectively deal with buyer and properly maintain
import & export activities.
• Governmental intervention is very important to reduce the complexity of EPB,
Custom and foreign especially.
