JAS offices across the world recently had an opportunity to come together to help a customer with an oversized and time-sensitive shipment. In this case, the customer, an automotive manufacturer, needed production line machinery moved from Germany to Texas, United States.
The shipment included 11 pieces which weighed 5.1 tons and measured over 30 CBM. Although some pieces were oversized, the team was able to create a tailor-made solution using JAS's Blue World Atlantic services.
The JAS MFE (Southwest) Team and our Trade Lane Manager, joined forces with colleagues in Germany to orchestrate this time-sensitive project.
JAS Bad Waldsee, the origin office, successfully picked up the cargo on July 26 in Dornstadt, Germany. This facility does not allow closed containers to be loaded as it does not have dock doors. Therefore, an open truck was used to transfer the cargo to the Frankfurt Airport (FRA). There the Gateway Team was prepared to receive the cargo, which departed on July 28 via the JAS Blue World Atlantic Air Charter Program. The shipment arrived the next day in Chicago, Illinois (ORD), where the United States Gateway Team coordinated with the JAS McAllen Branch (Texas, United States) to receive the shipment over the weekend. This close collaboration made it possible for the needed equipment to arrive at the end customer's facility in Texas on August 1, a day earlier than required.
Alfonso Ortiz, Business Development Manager, said of the shipment, "We are happy to have been able to find a solution for our customer and to have safely and successfully delivered the cargo ahead of schedule."

The JAS Chile and JAS France teams recently completed the secure transport of an aircraft engine from France to Santiago, Chile.
Moving the engine was a complex operation due to its size and weight. However, the JAS Chile was able to meet every challenge it faced to guarantee the engine’s safe passage. The aircraft engine weighs 5,955 kilograms and measures 430x257x265/185x155x55 cm.
The engine was picked up and placed on a truck on July 26th. From there, it was transported to Charles De Gaulle Airport (CDG) in Paris, France for customs clearance and documentation. There, the engine sat in the carriers’ warehouse from July 26- July 30 where it awaited further transport. On July 30, the engine was placed on a cargo flight from Charles De Gaulle Airport to Amsterdam Schiphol International Airport (AMS). From there, the engine completed its final leg of the journey traveling to Arturo Merino Benítez International Airport (SCL) in Santiago, Chile where it safely arrived mid-day.

Furthermore, it can reduce pressure on heavily congested roads helping mitigate issues associated with the truck driver shortage and increasing fuel rates.

After two years of social distancing imposed by the pandemic, Mr. Leonardo Baldi, JAS Italy CEO, organized the 2022 Annual Mid-Year Management Meeting.
At this meeting, the JAS Italy Management Team was provided with further results and directions, along with highly detailed market updates, thanks to the incredible participation of our Airline and Steam Ship Line Partners.
During the meeting the team also celebrated the retirement of JAS Italy colleagues: Franco Pinzani (Ocean Freight Director) and Maurizio Pedrinazzi (Airfreight Director). Together with two very special guests Mr. Biagio Bruni, JAS Chairman & Founder, and Mr. Graeme Robinson, EVP Operations of JAS Worldwide, we all congratulated with them on this important milestone.
Such a special occasion required a prestigious location. The FERRARI Maranello Museum was selected not only because of its beautiful location, but because it exemplifies the spirit and message given from Mr. Baldi to the entire management team: “Teamwork and continued improvement to achieve our goals.”
