JAS prides itself on its exceptional service and competitive pricing that comes about through the hard work and skill of the people who make up the JAS organization. The mission of JAS is to focus on innovation and maintain a commitment to deliver the product securely and on time.
This mission flows through its vast global network of 97 subsidiaries, 6000+ employees, and a presence in more than 100 countries. JAS' commitment to innovation in the fields of shipping, 3PL, and freight forwarding puts it in a unique class of select companies which concentrate on specialized projects as well as commodity shipping initiatives.
JAS is a premier “go-to” company for those wishing to move cargo from anywhere in the world to anywhere else in the world. Through the use of advanced tracking technologies, sophisticated global communications, and a large team of experts across a broad spectrum of specialties, JAS is able to cost effectively handle the shipping of everything from tiny camera parts up to the massive components required to build an oil rig.
Transporting cargo is a complex endeavor. JAS is the brand you can trust to satisfy your most demanding requirements.
Beyond its significant reach, what sets JAS apart from the pack is its ongoing commitment to maintaining a personal relationship with its customers. There is a “sweet spot” in the logistics and forwarding business where the customer gains the comprehensive services of a global provider, while simultaneously receiving the personal attention of a smaller organization. This is the sweet spot in which you will find JAS Worldwide. Customers know that when they work with JAS, they will not be treated as a faceless statistic. Instead, JAS specialists analyze the variety of needs each customer may have including budgets, insurance, customs, compliance, legal, and delivery considerations. JAS goes beyond the fundamentals by reminding customers of its commitment to sustainability issues such as environmental responsibilities, health & safety, social responsibility, security, and ethics. This well-rounded approach to the business of moving cargo across the face of the globe puts JAS in a special class of logistics and freight forwarding enterprises.
JAS is a privately owned international freight forwarder and logistics provider. During its thirty-plus year history, JAS has experienced exponential growth based on the vision and energy of its founder Mr. Biagio Bruni, who today remains Chairman. JAS has built a global network of quality offices that deliver a consistent level of high service and performance to its customers.
The company was founded in 1978 in Milan, Italy. From modest beginnings by the late 1980s JAS had expanded its offices in Europe and the Far East to include Milan, Rome, Florence, and Tokyo to meet the demands of its growing customer base. By 1988 JAS became the #1 ranked IATA Freight Forwarder in Italy.
In the 1990s JAS was expanding into the Americas with the opening of a network of offices both in North and South America. At the 25 year anniversary meeting held in 2003, the office network had grown to be represented in over 62 countries with more than 1500 employees.
JAS utilized its strength in the Italian market to fuel its growth into other areas of the world. JAS is a traditional freight forwarder in the sense that forwarding services are the foundation of the company and yet, it's the reason that has fueled its explosive growth. JAS’ solid freight forwarding background has fostered expansion into areas outside of its traditional offerings, secure in the knowledge that there is a firm foundation for all such Value Added Services.
While the European and the USA markets are expected to play a huge role in our organization, significant importance has been placed on expanding our coverage within the Asia Pacific Region. We’ve made major investments throughout this area within Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Kazakhstan, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam. As this area continues to grow so will JAS’ presence.
Likewise, JAS has also made significant investment in the Latin America markets. Unlike the majority of freight companies, both large and small, JAS invested in company owned offices in major markets in that region in the early days of our evolution. Firm in the belief that agencies, while beneficial in many aspects, do not always give the level of control required, JAS has opened offices under its own banner in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Peru, Uruguay, Venezuela, and Panama. This allows us to guarantee a level of service to these countries, which JAS considers to be of primary importance, especially in a market as variable and specialized as Latin America.
In 2016 and 2017 JAS established alliances with authorized agents which further established JAS as a global forwarder, expanding to over 100 countries in which we have offices.
“To be an organization that is committed to providing service at a level of excellence that exceeds every industry standard, at a price that is fair. We will accomplish this by creating an environment that encourages and rewards our employees for reaching their full potential, and emphasizes both competition and equality.”
Mr. Biagio Bruni,
Founder & Chairman
