The JAS commitment to equality for women throughout our organization has never been stronger. From the warehouse teams to the C-Suite, JAS women truly make the difference. This year, JAS continues to recognize the instrumental value of women’s contributions not only within the company but of its many women-owned and managed customers around the globe. We celebrate the theme of this year’s International Women’s Day, Choose To Challenge as JAS women continue to make the difference.
JAS is dedicated to our customers, and often has the opportunity to help clients overcome challenges when immediate shipments are needed. On Monday, the 22nd of February, a large automotive customer requested that JAS UK move an urgent air freight shipment from China to the UK.
As of Monday afternoon, this shipment was in a free trade zone warehouse (FTZ) in Wuxi, China, awaiting outbound bonded clearance. JAS Shanghai received the shipment at the airport warehouse at 2130 Monday. The flight left Tuesday with an ETA of 1600 at Heathrow Airport (LHR). JAS delivered the needed materials to the customer, located approximately 150 miles outside of Heathrow Airport (LHR), at 2330 on Tuesday.
The customer avoided a line stop in production due to the efficient delivery of the critical shipment and prevented the extra costs associated with line stoppage. Thank you, JAS UK, for your commitment to our customers! At JAS, our people really do make the difference!

JAS looks forward to utilizing the advantages this new branch offers the entire company network and most importantly, to the JAS client base.
Due to dramatic growth last year, JAS UK had to quickly find a location that could accommodate its expanding business. A new facility was located in a perfect location to deliver & retrieve cargo at Heathrow.
To aid productivity JAS UK procured a 2nd X-ray machine & invested in a powered roller bed ULD system which will allow a much quicker transfer of build and empty equipment, allowing for a fast turnaround of the 90-100 units it is building on a daily basis . The operation is a true 24/7 service with three warehouse shifts in operation. The Heathrow facility now sets the stage for optimal operation for a minimum of ten years growth with the ability to add a mezzanine floor should demand dictate. JAS UK now has eight dock leveled doors at Heathrow to facilitate quick loading and de-vanning of ocean containers, which represents 50% of JAS UK's business.
