DoMS IIT-Roorkee Internship Diary # 1

“Being passionate about operations, my internship at DTDC Courier Cargo Ltd set me up for 2 months of work in supply chain management. DTDC, with a presence in 16 countries, is amongst top courier and cargo service providers in our country. My key task here is process optimization in the supply chain as well as in their inbound-outbound activities.

I’m also involved in cost reduction by contributing ideas to minimize costs incurred due to the difference in approximated and actual load dispatched in the southern region. The best part of working in DTDC’s Bangalore office is my peer group which is very friendly and helpful. My colleagues help me out with all the required information and data that is needed for the success of my project. My mentors encouraged me in the right direction to bring out the best in me at work.

From the packaging techniques, delivery modes, transport scheduling, routing, the tracking system, data sharing, direct delivery, daily operations to vendor-based system followed by the company processes and communication methods among different hubs in different cities, I’m learning a bundle of skills during my internship at DTDC which gives me the necessary professional exposure and help me to develop a practical approach towards work, while making each day a memorable one.”
