Excursion of the Managing Director- Annurag Sharma
When Mr Annurag Sharma became assured to continue his studies after the schooling, he always aspired to lead a self-sustained life rather than being dependent on another person for monetary needs.

His keen and curious personality helped him learn how to reduce time in International shipments, Custom procedure and International packing of fragile items enhancing his knowledge in the relevant domain to maximize the benefit.

COMMENDABLE INSIGHTS ON BUSINESS CONDUCTION
Mr Sharma has a distinct philosophy about the conduction of a business venture. According to him, there are two ways of conducting a business venture- One is to perform the task that has been proposed on your table daily and the another way is to delve more into the depth of your job and always keep an eye on the activities of your competitors. The latter way of performing a task as per the premise given above, will add value to one’s job and will make one more productive and efficient.
“Consumers are always worried about the whole procedure- when the box would be picked up or will it be delivered on time or not. The whole Logistics Industry is striving to make a difference between these two states only. A budding start-up in this arena must make sure that customer values and delight are being fulfilled accordingly. We can customize the logistics and enhance it most beneficially. But, customer satisfaction should be the priority for ensuring success in the Logistics Industry.” says the Managing Director.
The colossal giants in the relevant field encounter a lot of lapses in this domain, as they are submerged in the system-oriented operations. The Key Official shares his personal experience of working with a megacorp that was inefficient in providing the adequate information to its consumer base. Contrary to this, small corporations simply divide the whole procedure into three divisions which is an effective way of offering a better experience to the consumer base. The Managing Director says that theoretical knowledge will not yield you with better results if you cannot imply it in your practical life.
“It is great to be a process-driven company but the management must ensure that such processes are defined or cut-down in a manner to escalate the performance of the employees. These solutions should contribute to the betterment of the Company rather than putting pressure on the employees.”says Mr Sharma.
Usually, the Company seeks financial services from in-house Accountant, Chartered Accountant and a Company Secretary who constantly strive to make the Organization flourish well from every aspect.

In India, the Organisation is flourishing pretty well while depending upon the self-sustained business model that need not to be funded from the investors. The Key Official has never considered borrowing any amount of sum from the banks, as the Company has survived the odds on its own. But, pinpointing the future outlooks, Mr Sharma conveyed that if the Organization expands its reach to the international market then it is willing to seek the investors and stakeholders for global conduction of the business.
“The key point is that if you conceive a financially sustainable idea,then you shouldn’t be in search of fundraising tactics. I would like to be associated with the people who would have something innovative to add to my business venture rather than adjoining the Company in regard to the monetary policy. As of now, we are quite happy with the way our venture is scaling the heights of growth. We will not be trading the shares of the Company just to earn the money, which is a strict policy constituted by us. But, we welcome the experts who are willing to offer the innovative solutions to the Organization, wholeheartedly. Says Mr Sharma.

It is generally acquired by the mix and match of the technology, and a person must be well-versed to make good use of such opportunities.”
