With a 57% reduction in passenger flights since this time last year, the overall global air freight capacity is down about 17% from this time last year.  

In the China to Europe lane capacity is down about 18% from the same period last year.

Limited space on remaining flights means frequent delays and interruptions of supply chains globally.  

With the unpredictable availability of cargo space, how do we regain control of air freight to ensure service in such a critical time?  

The traditional air freight model is no longer a realistic option, instead, alternative approaches are the key to maintaining a reliable and uninterrupted supply chain by providing door-to-door control of the shipping process.  It is crucial that every step of the process - from the time the cargo is picked up to its final delivery - is meticulously managed by the service provider with shipments processed through facilities controlled by the service provider, both at origin and destination, avoiding the typical congestion at airport hubs, reducing overall transit time, and increasing control.  

Selecting the right aircraft is particularly important. Freighters offer unmatched flexibility to meet all cargo needs. They have the capability to move normal and specialized cargo such as dangerous goods, oversized pieces, and shipments requiring refrigeration such as perishable and pharma.  

Lastly, a prime network of delivery options carries the cargo to its ultimate destination.  

In January JAS introduced BLUE WORLD ORIENT, a weekend freighter flight between Shanghai and Frankfurt. The BLUE WORLD ORIENT prime schedule is the best solution for supporting customers in the Asia - Europe air freight corridor!  

If your business could benefit from a regular service in the European flight corridor contact a local JAS representative for more information.

March 2020, Miami, and many of the surrounding counties in Florida (USA) faced new mandates and government regulations due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which posed a difficult challenge for JAS Miami. Like many JAS branches the work environment changed suddenly- as did the needs of customers. With some adjustments, endless enthusiasm and positive karma, JAS Miami was able to grow considerably in 2020, gaining more business through some major existing clients, as well as launching new projects and strengthening the JAS network into Latin America (LATAM). That network is important for JAS overall because JAS Miami is the main access point into LATAM and through this JAS USA Gateway almost 4.5 million kilos of cargo are moved from APAC (Asia Pacific) and Europe to LATAM and the Caribbean.

In October 2020, JAS announced additional weekly Flight Operations, Chicago – Atlanta & Miami. This new service is provided to further support customers in the Americas Region, which also includes mid-week departures to LATAM. JAS Miami operates diligently with JAS Chicago, as they are both official HUBS for JAS, receiving weekly trucks of consolidated freight destined for many LATAM locations. This process is rather complex and requires some of the finest positioning between all areas, requiring the customer service team to closely monitor freight through C1, where shipments are processed from origin. The warehouse team then receives, segregates, and repacks as needed in preparation for the destination country.

A long time JAS Miami customer approached JAS to handle the deployment & retrieval of all voting machines in Los Angeles County, this task was completed thanks to the support of JAS LAX; additionally, JAS Miami coordinated the logistics for two overseas elections in 2020. These projects were of great significance and importance for JAS USA, and JAS is proud to be a part of this process.

JAS Miami also coordinated the logistics of a major mobile phone launch for LATAM, supporting one of the largest distribution groups in the region. These are the same visionaries who made the Colon Free Zone a reality, the world’s second largest free trade zone.

JAS Miami’s dedication to our customers and capability to meet their growing needs, while operating meticulously to aggressively expand our network is remarkable and receives my utmost appreciation." Eugenio Fumo, CEO, JAS USA

The JAS Miami Branch has recently been activated as an FTZ (Foreign-Trade Zone, Inc.). This activation gives JAS Miami the opportunity to provide specialized services related to FTZ operations.  As an active FTZ, the JAS Miami facility has a section of floor space which is for legal purposes outside the customs territory of the United States, this allows JAS Miami to offer weekly entry services, duty deferral opportunities for import goods and duty eliminations for some export goods.  Weekly entry services may provide significant opportunities for clients to reduce costs and streamline their supply chain. FTZs offer the broadest flexibility for all bonded type facilities in the US.

During the last 3 years, under the guidance and leadership of Maria Emilia Davila (aka MED) JAS Miami continues to advance and evolve, often recognized, and valued by other JAS offices in LATAM as instrumental leaders they can rely on daily. JAS Miami’s collaboration and efforts within the region are exceptional, JAS envisions much success in 2021 from the Miami team!

Chinese roast pig-cutting ceremony is one of the most iconic traditions in Chinese culture. As the tradition goes, if you are able to cut through the pig in one strike (remember, there are bones in the way), you will enjoy a smooth and prosperous year. Thus, the pig-cutting ceremony can be often seen at the beginning of the year, or at the opening ceremony of new companies, etc. in China.

Of course, the JAS Hong Kong team is not an exception in following this tradition. Thanks to the support and trust from customers, JAS has overcome the unprecedented challenges faced by last year and successfully reached our business goals in 2020! In order to send gratitude to and thank customers for such a good year of the Rat and to also welcome the year of the Ox, a Chinese thanks-giving ceremony was hosted at the JAS Tsing Yi Warehouse. Andrea Azzimonti, Vice President Sales & Marketing, and Wing Chan, JAS Hong Kong Branch Manager & Director of Supply Chain of China including Hong Kong, represented JAS China and Hong Kong in the pig-cutting ceremony. In the world of freight forwarding and logistics, speed and smooth delivery are one of the key goals to hit. Hence, the belief that the smooth one-strike of the cutting ceremony will bring smooth traffic in air, water, road, and so forth to the continued journey to success!

JAS takes this opportunity, to wish you a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous Year in the Year of the Ox!

JAS takes pride in always making the difference for our customers. Therefore, when an industrial partner contacted JAS with the need to make an urgent shipment of 9 tons of sensitive and critical cargo from the Netherlands to South Africa, the teams in Saudi Arabia and South Africa created a plan.

Since the cargo required special packaging to ensure that it was safely transported safely, the team in the Netherlands found a way to complete the packaging at shipper premises thanks to the collaboration between Shipper and Consignee on the process and documentation. At the same time, the team worked to book and confirm the arrangements with the airline.  

Thanks to the teams' collaboration, JAS successfully packaged and moved the cargo to the customer's complete satisfaction. Congratulations, JAS Saudi Arabia and JAS Netherlands!
