.” Ivan, who has 7 years of experience in logistics, has insights since he was working for others that Malaysia's logistics and transportation capacities need to be strengthened as there is still no comprehensive solution to solve user problems. At that time, the rise of Uber and the rapid development of online platforms enlighten him that the development in logistics is the core of the e-commerce development. In 2017, Ivan determined to revolutionize Malaysia's logistics industry and partnered with a Japanese company which possess 10year’s experience in technology research and development to jointly create a smart online logistics trading platform namely GOLOG, which is designed for B2B and B2B2C companies with diversified transportation solutions. It is a logistics service provider that integrates technology with logistics, creates efficient logistics services, and successfully transformed traditional industries into profitable models in the digital era.

They were designed according to the needs of merchants which effectively reduce the pressure on merchants and achieve cost reduction through big data analytics. In the past, many companies' entrepreneurial ideas were mainly to meet customer needs, but Golog's philosophy was to satisfy the merchants. According to Ivan, win-win scenario is achieved with total customer satisfaction when goods are perfectly delivered to them, that’s where value is created. Ivan reveals that entrepreneurship is risky, especially struggling for continuous improvement and progress where it requires substantial amount of funding and significant results to gain trust of investors and overcome all difficulties alongside. He recalls, it took nearly a year for a breakthrough and successfully accelerated the expansion of the logistics industry.Unwavering social responsibility
To counteract the ever-changing challenges, Ivan believes that entrepreneurship needs to be adequately prepared. On top of that, psychological construction and working experience lay a solid foundation for success. Ivan describes that the workplace is an excellent ground to hone, to strengthen capabilities and connections. Nevertheless, it is essential to learn to be a good person as good characteristics can win the trust of all and aids in building connections and popularity. Upon starting a business, it is important to continue learning and improving, and always maintain a state of mind that learning is a lifelong process. Entrepreneurship is not just about seeking profits, but helping the society and the country by making greater contributions.
