Bettina Ramcke, Global Director of Business Implementation at JAS Worldwide
June 17, 2024

As the Global Director of Business Implementation at JAS Worldwide, Bettina has navigated the world of logistics with determination and a commitment to making a difference. Her involvement with The Sandy Springs Mission, a local nonprofit supported by The Bruni Foundation, JAS’s philanthropy aimed at enriching local communities, exemplifies her dedication to uplifting her team and those around her.

Bettina originally worked in the hospitality industry. Her path took a turn when she started helping with her family’s forwarding company, marking her introduction to logistics. This experience paved the way for her move to Australia, where she utilized her multilingual abilities and industry knowledge to support logistics for the Sydney Olympic Games. Over the next 15 years, Bettina worked diligently to hone her skills and expertise.

After a hiatus to recover from burnout, Bettina reentered the workforce, joining JAS to continue developing the business implementation structure. “I took two years off because I was burned out and I told myself, “I’m not going back to this industry, but what made me reconsider, was looking at JAS’s values and its commitment to giving back to the environment, and to communities. That was very important to me.”

Bettina’s ability to navigate this demanding field is rooted in her passion for logistics and her belief in the importance of being driven by what you love.

Beyond her professional accomplishments, Bettina’s heart is equally invested in community service. For the past 5 years, she has volunteered with non-profit organizations in Jamaica and with The Sandy Springs Mission, an Atlanta-based nonprofit dedicated to providing Latino students of all ages with the resources needed to lead a successful life during and after high school.

With the support of The Bruni Foundation, JAS’s philanthropic arm, Bettina has been instrumental in fostering a partnership that promises tangible benefits for local Atlanta children.

One of Bettina’s key initiatives is enhancing the Mission’s sports program for elementary and middle school students. She believes that exposure to different sports can significantly boost children’s confidence and encourage lifelong participation. “Enhancing the sports program will allow the kids to grow their confidence in joining their school’s sport teams, which would help in better life habits and could lead to future college scholarships” Bettina explains. This initiative is part of a broader one-year partnership with The Sandy Springs Mission, backed by a grant from The Bruni Foundation. The funding allows for the support of various sports programs, like improving the quality of the baseball camps, adding an introduction to volleyball, basketball and tennis sessions during the summer and after-school activities, and also provide sports gear. Bettina emphasizes that volunteering with the organization doesn’t always have to be signing up for week-long camps or committing long-hours, noting that volunteers can play a critical role just by volunteering for 1-2 hours during a camp or even helping parents translate and fill out paperwork.

Bettina Ramcke’s story is one of passion, and a commitment to making a difference. Whether through her work in logistics or her efforts with The Sandy Springs Mission, she exemplifies how dedication to both career and community can lead to meaningful impact. As she continues to lead with passion, Bettina remains a powerful example of how one person’s commitment can inspire widespread change and foster community growth.

JAS China, a leading logistics service provider, proudly announces its recent triumph at the Panda D'Oro Awards, where it received the prestigious Service Provider Award. This accolade highlights the teams commitment to excellence and its significant contributions to the Sino-Italian business community.

The Panda D'Oro Awards, presented by the China-Italy Chamber of Commerce (CICC), celebrate companies that have made remarkable strides in strengthening economic ties between Italy and China. This award ceremony recognizes those who have excelled in their respective fields, contributing to the growth and prosperity of bilateral relations. The Service Provider Award distinguishes exceptional service providers who have demonstrated efficiency, best practices, and outstanding results. It honors those who have enhanced their competitiveness in the Chinese market through innovation and sustainable business strategies.

JAS China's innovative LCL reefer product, developed in collaboration with the CICC Logistics Working Group, has revolutionized the export, transportation, and clearance of Food and Beverage goods. From frozen to fresh food, including chocolate and wine, this service has enabled Italian and Chinese Food & Beverage companies to access the Chinese market with competitive costs and timely delivery, even for small quantities or test marketing campaigns. The introduction of the co-loading option has created a product that can be utilized by other logistics providers within the CICC, serving their clients without the need to establish a new implant. This innovative approach has not only catered to the sector's needs but has set a new standard in the logistics industry.

"International trade between China and Italy is a dynamic landscape, where the future is determined by current bold moves. When we deal with the opportunity of cross-border reefer service, we need to be agile and build partnerships that go beyond borders. This is how we support flourishing trading between two countries while enabling the success of our customers at both ends," said Marco Civardi, CEO, JAS China

JAS China's vision is to deliver lasting value to its clients and shareholders by meeting and exceeding expectations, ensuring the safe and timely delivery of products, and upholding the highest standards of integrity and honesty.

This June, the Bruni Foundation has been busy planting seeds of change and nurturing community spirit across the world. From the mountains of Peru to the coasts of Indonesia and the heart of Malaysia and Cambodia, this month’s initiatives have brought people together in the spirit of sustainability and support. Here’s a snapshot of how we have been making a difference, one community at a time.

In Peru, the Pay It Forward effort was made possible through a partnership with JAS Peru, Sweet Child Peru, and The Green Heroes Educational Center. The project supported Andean communities by providing environmental education and nutritious meals to children. Community members enjoyed activities such as tree planting and soap making, all centered on sustainability and ecological education.

In Indonesia, the Bruni Foundation funded a mangrove planting event at Taman Wisata Alam (TWA) Mangrove Angke Kapuk. Thirty JAS Indonesia volunteers planted mangrove trees to support coastal protection and biodiversity. This event marked the first sustainability program held by JAS Indonesia in 2024.

In Malaysia, the JAS team participated in a donation drive at a local orphanage, the House of Love.  JAS Malaysia employees provided donations and spent time with the children living at the home. The joy and gratitude shared during this event emphasized the importance of community support.

In Cambodia, JAS and Inter-Campus Cambodia partnered to provide essential educational and sports materials to over 300 children. This included delivering sports equipment, school backpacks, and other learning materials.

Reflecting on the past month, we’re filled with excitement for what is ahead. The Bruni Foundation remains committed to empowering communities through education, environmental stewardship, and social support. We are grateful for the dedication of our volunteers and partners, whose efforts make these initiatives possible. Together, we will continue to make a difference, one project at a time.
