Recently, JAS France organized a visit of the Fos port in Marseille with some customers. More than 30 people were welcomed on site by the JAS France sales team to learn more about the port setup and operations.

Fos port is France’s main port on the Mediterranean sea, gateway to the southern part of France. It currently handles 1.5 million TEU yearly while its capacity was recently increased to 3 million TEU, anticipating a fast growth in the coming years.

Being able to actually experience the activity of the port provides a better understanding of the current shipping environment. The fast-paced environment continues 24/7 as workers strive to meet the many demands. Despite the pressure the top priorities remain meeting schedules while observing safety guidelines both at dock and at sea.

As the team watched the vessel mooring, the dock became an anthill of activity with a dozen of straddles carrying containers back and forth. It was impressive to see all the effort and coordination required to help the goods reach their final destination on time.

JAS France would like to thank The Port of Marseille Fos and Port Synergy – EuroFos for arranging this visit! Many thanks as well to our esteemed customers who joined us for this day together!

Over the past few months, Sommer Sampson (TSA IACSC) and Margaret Christian (TSA A-IACSC) have been traveling to help implement additional screening facilities to new and current JAS locations.  

Air cargo screening demands continue to be on the rise since the ICAO 100% Screening Mandate of ALL outbound Air Cargo in 2021. To better meet customer demands, JAS TSA Compliance successfully rolled out 3 new Certified Cargo Screening Facilities (CCSF’s), with 2 more additional openings being planned for the near future. These new facilities (located in Houston, Chicago, and Los Angeles) will add flexibility and increased options for our customers during the ever-increasing challenges that the industry continues to navigate. JAS longtime partner, Global K9 Protection Group (GK9PG) helps to make this happen by using canine as the primary screening method. JAS is also one of the few Indirect Air Carriers (IACs) approved to accept and handle Impracticable to Screen (ITS) cargo, giving us even more flexibility in our offerings to customers.  

While heightened screening demands continue to challenge the industry, JAS is confident and ready due to our (now) 8 CCSF locations, multiple methods of screening, and years of experience in the Certified Cargo Screening Program (CCSP).
