Congratulations to Mr. Jenson Pan on winning the 2017 Best Sales of Transcend award!
Transcend Information Inc. was founded in 1988 by Mr. Peter Shu, with its headquarters in Taipei, Taiwan and has been registered as a public company in the Taiwan Stock Exchange since 2001. Today, Transcend has become a leading global brand for digital storage, multimedia and industrial products with 14 offices worldwide.
JAS Taiwan has been offering airfreight & customs brokerage services to Transcend Information Inc. for about 10 years. Since 2014, JAS has been receiving more and more air cargo service inquiries from Mr. Jenson Pan, Middle East Country Head for Transcend Information Inc., for his new client development in the Middle East.
Thanks to JAS' strong business network and abundant experience in this area, JAS has always provided various assistance to meet his business promotion needs, not only making sure shipments are on time deliveries, but also with economic rates, as well as providing market consultancy and potential customer referrals.
Therefore, it was no surprise when JAS Taiwan received the good news from Mr. Jenson Pan on February 1st 2018 that he had received the Award for 2017 Best Sales for Transcend from his CEO – Mr. Peter Hsu during their Annual Party. We are very pleased for him and this achievement, and touched at the same time in honor of his success as it proves that we have once again executed our vision of helping customers achieve their business goals.
China is the world’s largest production and consumer markets, and JAS China is an important part for our JAS network for many reasons. Some of those reasons include exploring and creating multiple opportunities with clients, airline partners, and shipping lines in both China and Hong Kong.
In November 2017, JAS China welcomed JAS employees from different countries and offices into Hong Kong for both hard work and to have some fun together. Those who came to Hong Kong from other JAS offices included (pictured from left to right in the image above) Mr. Fabrizio Toti from JAS Italy, Mr. Stefano Olmi from JAS APAC, Mr. Tony Romano from JAS USA, Mr. Gregor Vhrunc from JAS Americas, Mr. Graeme Robinson from JAS WW and Mr. Andrea Azzimonti from JAS China.
In Chinese society, it is tradition for companies to show gratitude to their clients for their continuous support all year round before the Chinese New Year. In 2018, JAS Hong Kong organized its first customer luncheon that welcomed the top clients and JAS management team from all over the world to the Hyatt Regency Tsim Sha Tsui on February 2, 2018.
As a WAT Meeting was held in Hong Kong during the same week, Graeme Robinson, Executive Vice President of Operations, was invited to be the honorary speaker and provided air freight and ocean freight market updates to JAS Hong Kong VIP and top potential clients. The luncheon provided an opportunity for the clients to meet and greet the JAS Management team from WW, Americas, EMEA, APAC, USA, Italy, and Germany. It also enabled JAS Hong Kong to closely connect and interact with clients, and explore business opportunities.
The luncheon was successful and the audience was pleased to receive the latest market updates and learn about how JAS is positioning towards the market from Graeme.
With this opportunity, JAS Hong Kong thanks the participants for their endless trust and support, and would like to wish everyone a happy Chinese New Year of the Dog!
Since the establishment of JAS China and Hong Kong, Italy has always been one of the most important business partners for Hong Kong, which contributes almost 25 percent of business for China and Hong Kong. This is a strong indicator that both countries are deeply engaged in cultivating this important trade lane. JAS Italy and JAS Hong Kong decided it was important to meet in person and really get to know one another.
To welcome the visit of Mr. Franco Pinzani, General Manager Seafreight Division from JAS Italy, in late October 2017, the Italy trade lane team in JAS Hong Kong arranged top customer visits and a fabulous Italian dinner with Mr.Pinzani. This dinner meeting with Mr. Pinzani strengthened the JAS Hong Kong and JAS Italy network partnership and brought names to faces, and also proved that no matter where in the world a JAS Team member is, they are all "100% Made In Italy."
JAS China & Hong Kong look forward to growing the Italy trade lane even more in the coming year.

The Technical & Engineering Team from VOITH IN visited the U.S. plant to supervise the dismantling of the plant & machinery and package it in a manner that could be stuffed into a 40HC shipper owed container (SOC), with the help of special MHE's (material handling equipment).
The objective was the ability to reassemble and erect the plant & machinery at the destination VOITH IN Faridabad plant in the shortest possible time and get the plant up and running in the shortest gestation period.
Trish & Jeff at JAS USA did an excellent job of hosting the VOITH IN overseas team and coordinating the visit and cargo inspections at VOITH NC US site, in addition to sharing their know-how and expertise on packaging to optimism the container stuffing.
Our JAS USA team also helped source and Buy SOC containers Lloyd certified, on behalf of VOITH IN. This was followed by systematic & meticulous planning for stuffing, drayage, and on board the vessel with no additional costs incurred like over-time, chassis halting, storage or demurrage charges. It was a seamless operation and effortlessly done all during the Christmas holiday season. Way to go JAS USA.
