JAS takes pride in contributing to the communities we live in and share with our customers and neighbors. It is an important part of JAS' Social Responsibility to dedicate time each year to give back to those in need. JAS Panama prides itself rising to the occasion and making an impact in their community and is committed to giving back to the neighborhood that they are a part of and do so annually. This year as a way to give back to those in need JAS Panama joined together to give to children undergoing treatments at the local hospital.
On October 24th, the JAS Panama team joined together to be God-Parents of the week and bring gifts and other donations to children in the hospital during the Week of Prevention against Burns. Preparations for this event went on for over a month prior to the 24th, and it was a privilege to contribute to the happiness and well being of the beautiful children and amazing staff of this hospital. JAS knows that if we all work together, we can make the world a better place.
JAS is proud to be a part of such a wonderful effot and we look forward to continuing to do our part with the communities and people we live and work with! JAS Panama thanks all of the sponsors who never hesitate to support the great work JAS is doing in the community and a special thanks to the collaborators who worked with the hospital to make this possible, especially Licda, Arcadia Quintero, and Nurse Belgica Chiru.
At JAS, people make the difference, and that is what makes JAS different.
JAS India was proud to have had the opportunity to welcome the JAS USA Management Team to their incredible country for the first time this past August, from the 27th to the 31st. These dates coincided with the annual JAS India Country meeting held at the JAS India Headquarters in Gurugram. This meeting brought together Mr.Eugenio Fumo - CEO of JAS USA, Mr.Alberto Bruni - COO of JAS USA, Mr.Tomas Sonntag - EVP of APAC, and the India senior management team which was hosted by the Managing Director Mr.Soman Rajiv Nair.
The meeting was centered around the rapid development between both subsidiaries and the opportunities the market continues to lead to. Deliberations during the meeting helped both countries gain insights into how customers from both countries can benefit from what each subsidiary has to offer.
With the ongoing global trade wars, India is being looked at as a potential sourcing base, something JAS USA and JAS India spent time delving into and exploring during this time of collaboration. As customers seek new solutions, JAS is on the forefront to investigate and find those answers. With a global network that spans 90 countries, including India and the United States, with more than 323 individual offices, JAS is able to use this expansive network to provide unparalleled service to clients. This focus on delivering and developing the best opportunities for clients is what drives JAS to continue to collaborate and develop new and existing trade lanes to better serve our clients.
JAS India and JAS USA are excited to build stronger bonds and provide the best service to their customers needs.

As we move into the last part of the year and into a new year JAS Peru is staying committed to developing new products that can generate value-added services that can provide customers with better solutions and make them more profitable. That is why this year JAS Peru began the implementation of ILS or Integrated Logistic Service platform, this platform gives JAS customers absolute control of their operations at a local level.
The ILS platform's concept houses both service import and service export cost structures and logistic control under one roof. Allowing JAS clients to receive one single bill for multiple services, and allowing greater efficiency and more savings at the local supply chain level, as well as giving them more control over their shipments. This includes customs clearance, local transport, carriers fees, etc. Many JAS customers have taken advantage of this initiative and have been able to consolidate and gain better operational control over thier local supply chain, giving them better container flow.
This initiative in Peru has been spearheaded by Customs Manager, Jetsys Lavado, along with the commercial team, who have been a tremendous support as more clients have joined the program.
JAS Peru looks forward to the continued expansion of this program to give the most to their customers.
JAS Worldwide knows that the further upstream your company's visibility is with your supply chain, the more opportunities there are to make decisions to alleviate or even avoid pain points caused by uncontrollable factors in your supply chain. Giving companies more control and power over their supply chain can lead to reduced costs, increased visibility, reduced manual processes, reduced errors and reworks, and most importantly meeting your customer expectations.
Order management(OM) is the administration of business processes related to purchase or sales orders for goods or services. OM promotes automation and the streamlining of order processing for businesses. OM service provides upstream visibility to order related activity from order inception to delivery at line item level.
Using OM can provide visibility and control to the upstream part of the supply chain process, allowing for decisions to be made to mitigate or even avoid uncontrollable downstream factors such as supplier & vendor discrepancies, manufacturing issues, and giving more visibly to the supplier processes. These upstream decisions can include adjustments in lead times for purchases, changes to purchase activity, and managing problem supplier activity. Without OM, visibility is limited to the the downstream part of the process, limiting or possibly even eliminating the opportunity to make decisions that would mitigate against uncontrollable factors or issues that arise.
The benefits of upstream visibility are fewer shipments, improved consolidations, timing to meet expected date requirements, container utilization, planned consolidation, less LCL and more FCL, less Air Freight, all leading to reduced costs for JAS customers.
JAS provides a single portal for all visibility to all modules via JASTrack, increasing visibility. This offers customers standard and customized reports, order integrated bookings, online order administration, upstream milestone tracking, and order details and activity tracking that includes expected dates, quantities, shipment details, and container details. The JAS OM includes online bookings tool with copy function, integration of order, booking, shipping, and receiving data, as well as the automation of documents, reducing manual processes.
To reduce errors and the need for reworking JAS uses EDI integrated Order Management, an integration of order, booking, shipping, and receiving data. This allows for the automation of documents and the re-use of data throughout process. Saving time, and generating more efficiency. This enables JAS customers to meet their customers expectations. Giving them expected dates management, expected quantity management, and quality control support processes.
Some additional benefits of JAS Order Management include identifying bottlenecks in the supply chain through visibility, communication, and reporting. All of which can help identify singular or repetitive issues that may be causing bottlenecks in the process. This visibility also lends to removing supply chain "black holes" making sure that there is no lack of visibility to any section of the supply chain process. Along with visibility, JAS Order Management also keeps logs of historical data in an organized and reportable fashion, providing empowerment to your company to make important decisions to resolve issues within your supply chain

In November of 2018, The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announced their consent for explosive detection canine teams to become registered Security Program holders under the Certified Cargo Screening Program-K9. This program allows airlines and freight forwarders to utilize private sector canine teams as a primary screening resource, essentially reducing time and costs compared to other screening methods.
JAS Forwarding (USA) has long been a member of the TSAs Certified Cargo Screening Program and currently has CCSF (Certified Cargo Screening Facility) locations in all major gateways. “While we currently utilize XRAY and ETD technology as our primary screening methods, there are still inefficiencies in the screening process that can slow down a CCSF and add unnecessary labor costs and time,” explains Sommer Sampson, Corporate Principle Security Coordinator at JAS. “Most palletized cargo must be screened at the individual piece level. Therefore, it’s taken apart and screened piece-by-piece, then put back together. With a dog…this all goes away,” says Sampson. The 3PK9 Program allows canines to screen entire pallets without being broken down, reducing screening time from hours to minutes.
Whether a loading dock, aircraft, warehouse, or Unit Load Device, canines are specifically trained to quickly assess any and all areas for potential explosive threats without business disruption. Canines have proven to be the most effective means to screen shipments comprised of multiple commodities. In some cases (e.g. drums, perishable products) they are the ONLY effective means available.
JAS Forwarding (USA) has been working closely with TSA on implementing this new program, by inviting them out to JAS stations for live demos and trials. While canine screening has been present with passenger airlines for years, it is new to the air cargo arena and, therefore, new to TSA inspection authorities as well. JAS was one of the first freight forwarders approved to conduct trials in its major Gateways and is now successfully using canines as a primary screening method. Sampson remarks “This will no doubt be a game changer for the industry and we look forward to being a part of that.”
