Anyway, Now I would like to write the mail role of a Merchandiser:
The main role of a garment Merchandiser is to collect Garment export order (Export L/C). Then produce the garments and export. If a Merchandiser can the all operation successfully then his/her garment owner as well as he/she will be benefited. But it’s a matter of true that to perform those above functions successfully needs huge knowledge and tremendous effort for a Merchandiser.

Duties and Responsibilities of Merchandiser:
The major duties and responsibilities of a garment merchandiser are as below-

•    To procure or collect a garment export order or export L/C
•    To estimate time schedule for the export of those garments as per L/C
