JAS USA opens new warehouse (stock image)
April 8, 2022
Americas

To better address the needs of its rapidly growing customer base, JAS USA is pleased to announce the opening of a second warehouse facility in Houston, Texas, USA.

The new container freight station (CFS) bonded warehouse offers geographic advantages due to its prime location near the Port of Houston (HOU), home to the largest container port on the Gulf Coast.

The attractive location allows for dedicated contract carriage (DCC) boxes and even faster handling of inbound less-than-container load (LCL) cargo. Additionally, the new facility site is ideal for transloads/export container loading.

For importers seeking to re-route cargo to avoid the congestion and risks associated with the East and West Coasts, the Port of Houston is comparatively much less congested. However, it still allows for efficient connectivity throughout the United States due to Interstate Highways 10, 45, and 69.

Of the new warehouse opening, Linday Gambee Regional Sales Director SW, said “This warehouse is a huge strategic advantage for our customers. We look forward to utilizing all the advantages this new warehouse offers to the entire company and most importantly, to the JAS client base.”

As a logistics service provider Greencarrier Freight Services is able to assist a company that was struggling with customs formalities for shipments from China to Latvia.
April 12, 2022
EMEA

Cost savings is no longer the only top priority for companies looking for outsourcing partners. More so, they want a partner who can provide the expertise and knowledge not found in-house. Logistics is a core competency, and also the biggest reason companies choose to outsource their logistics activities: It allows them to focus on their core business. This is precisely what one of our customers did.

In need of a qualified and experienced customs broker

In 2007, an international company, best known for its leading technology in the power, renewable energy, aviation, and healthcare industries, reached out to us. The company was struggling with custom formalities for shipments from China to Latvia. They were in need of a qualified and experienced customs broker that could handle the complex procedures and formalities for their large goods volumes. Together with the company, we looked into the possibilities, and a collaboration was initiated that would turn into a long-lasting relationship.

Logistics as a core competency

In 2018, the company re-nominated us as their customs broker. This time, the scope was a bit wider. Our customer is a large international company with businesses all over the world and large goods volumes that need to be moved across borders. Instead of employing their own logistics experts, they wanted to outsource their customs brokerage to us. Logistics being our core competency, this was a perfect match.

Providing our expert knowledge in customs brokerage

Two of our logistics experts would dedicate their resources exclusively to our customer’s account and work in their name. Thanks to our previous collaboration, we already knew the ins and outs of the company and its import and export requirements. After closing the agreement, including strict disclosure requirements and confidentiality rules, our logistics experts were ready to get to work.

Greencarrier Freight Services took care of customs procedures and formalities, making sure the shipments met all standards and regulations for import and export as well as requirements for customs clearance. We handled all the necessary documentation, duties, taxes, and payments.

Managing the cargo flow from A to Z

In 2020, the company reached out to us once again. They had a similar project in one of the CIS countries and needed our help. However, this time, they wanted us to handle customs procedures and formalities and manage their entire cargo flow from A to Z. This included all transport modes and multiple trade lanes. It also required logistics experts that could speak English and Russian fluently working in international teams.

The Airbus A220 sits at the airport
April 15, 2022
Americas

Making its debut in Latin America in mid-April, the Airbus A220 created quite a stir. Prospective airline customers were drawn to the A220 as a cost-efficient solution.  

The allure of the Airbus A220 hit the new marketplace as part of a planned tour of the region.  

Owned by SWISS International Airlines, the A220 used for the expedition had planned stops in Argentina, Brazil, and Chile. The logistics management expertise of the JAS Brazil team was required for the A220’s inaugural stop in Brazil.  

Team members conducted a record operation with the Federal Revenue. In just three hours, the team obtained the required documentation, licenses, and organization of landings for demonstration. JAS Brazil also was responsible for coordinating the A220’s departure from Brazil to its next stop in Miami, Fla. The team is responsible for coordinating the re-export of the Airbus A220 following its departure until its return to its storage yard.  

It's not difficult to see why airlines in Latin America are interested in the Airbus A220. It is the only aircraft built for the 100 to 150-seat market. Additionally, it brings together Pratt & Whitney’s state-of-the-art aerodynamics, composite materials, and turbofan engines.  

The A220 features a 50 percent noise footprint reduction and lower fuel burn per seat compared to the previous generation aircraft. Another attractive quality is the 50 percent lower nitrous oxide (NOx) emissions than industry standards currently require.  

Currently, the A220 is Airbus’ main player for regional operations, with the possibility of a jet for long-haul routes. JAS Brazil is pleased to be a part of this unparalleled introduction into the Latin American marketplace and looks forward to furthering collaboration with Airbus.
