The JAS Projects - Oil & Gas China office recently moved five cactus nozzles on container vessels as a break-bulk shipment from China to the job site located in the Jubail industry zone in KSA. The five cactus nozzles belong to a shutdown order of an EPC Project. Dims & weight of the cactus nozzles: L6.90m x W6.60m x H3.30mm / 40 tons each.
JAS PO&G China had to move the cactus nozzles from Maoming city in China to the job site within a short time frame. Given the importance of the cargo, the JAS PO&G China office planned out the most economical method and route within the given time frame for moving the cargo.
Considering the extreme dimensions, the JAS PO&G China office mobilized a sea-going barge to bring the cargo from Maoming to Shekou seaport to connect to the ocean vessel. At Shekou seaport, the JAS PO&G China office worked together with a container carrier to load the five cactus nozzles directly from the barge onto a container vessel under the break bulk model, by which the transit time ex. Shekou port to Damman port was managed & shortened.
Upon cargo arrival at Dammam port, JAS PO&G DMM office positioned axles hydraulic trailers to receive the cargo directly from the vessel and delivered to jobsite at Jubail industry zone.
All five cactus nozzles were successfully delivered to the job site prior to the shutdown date and in good condition.

Do you like potato chips? Potato chips are one of the favorite snacks in South Korea, which require approximately 130,000 Tons of potatoes a year for production.
One important requirement to make good potato chips is to have the potatoes as fresh as possible or else it will not be delicious. During summer time from June to October, South Korea alone can produce approximately 100,000 Tons of potatoes locally, but it is difficult to produce sufficient a quantity of potatoes during winter.
In order to meet market demands and fulfill customer satisfaction in the winter, they must first import and store potatoes from West USA in November and later on import fresh potatoes from Australia, which has summer from December onwards. Due to several reasons, Australia's export for potatoes are increasing rapidly. From January to May of 2016, USA exports were down 65 percent, compared to the same time last year, while Australia exports went up 69 percent.
Potatoes from Australia to Korea require a very special handling process & know-how. Transportation from an Australia Farm to a Korean manufacturers’ plants have to be done by reefer containers, as the potatoes require certain temperature control & ventilation throughout the journey. It is estimated about 1,000 – 1,200 of 40-feet reefer containers were moved in 2016 and same is projected for 2017.
In 2016, JAS Australia and Korea successfully stepped into this business by handling 163 of the 40-feet reefer containers for one of South Korea's major potato chip manufacturing companies. Subsequently, JAS has also secured approximately 400 of the 40-feet reefer containers in 2017 with all three manufacturers. The 2017 business contract was signed at the JAS Sydney office in December 2016 with Australian Supplier, Shingreen Fresh and JAS Australia and Korea.
With Potato Logistics, JAS is not only offering a pure transport service, but also a wide range of associated logistics services, extending from professional ocean shipment to destination storage and other activities specific to the agricultural sector.
JAS will continue to deliver quality potatoes punctually and in good condition so that everyone is able to enjoy their potato chips even in the winter time in South Korea.
For the past four decades, fashion has always been in the blood of JAS. Due to our extensive knowledge of this industry, we fully understand the unique and complex nature of the luxury fashion industry logistic, which enables us to offer a reliable and quality one-stop solution.
One of the renowned Italian luxury fashion brands regards JAS as a trust-able Global Supply Chain partner and decided to entrust JAS China to handle their SS2017 collection from Hong Kong and Shanghai to Modena, Italy via Air Garments-on-hangers (GOH) consolidation service.
Even though JAS has been working closely with the client in various parts of the world, it is not an easy feat to secure this type of business. With a strong display of our knowledge of the client's requirements and demands, along with the successful showcase of prior Air GOH consolidations, JAS managed to outperform the other competitors. In addition, with JAS Milan's eco-friendly initiative of recycling the GOH equipment (paper-made C05) for other shipments, this enabled our clients to enjoy a more competitive rate while not compromising the quality of the service standard.
From Q4 2016 onward, JAS Hong Kong and Shanghai have weekly Air GOH consolidation service to Modena, with an average of 2,000 pieces to 4,000 pieces per consolidation per week.
By displaying our capability in GOH consolidation service from Hong Kong and Shanghai, we aim to expand our footprint to be the global nominated partner for our loyal fashion client. We also believe the success brought by this business will further strengthen the JAS position in the luxury fashion market.

The twelfth season of the GP2 Series, a motor racing feeder series that is run in support of the 2016 FIA Formula One World Championship, is officially underway. The 2016 series kicked off in Barcelona, Spain on May 14-15, 2016. JAS is proud to continue the sponsorship of GP2 driver Raffaele Marciello. Raffaele will be driving for the Russian Time team this season!
A typical race weekend is composed of one 30 minute practice session and then another 30 minute qualifying session, which is followed by two races that typically take place the following two days after the qualifying race. Raffaele qualified 12th before the official races on May 14 & 15 stating "After a really long break, a new GP2 season has started. What can I say about my performance in Barcelona? All in all, I am satisfied. During qualifying [race] the car was well-balanced but I lacked a bit of speed, so I had to settle for 12th place." Raffaele placed 8th on the 14th in race one and then placed 5th the following day in race two! Raffaele took home a total of 10 points! He continued in his statement about the races, saying, "I knew I could do better in race one, and I did. When I found myself in 14th place I decided to increase the pace and attack with more confidence. It went well, and thanks to a series of overtakings – a few of which were really nice – I climbed to 8th place, and managed to take home four points. On Sunday I started in pole position and tried as hard as I could to stay in front, but at the moment there [were] a few drivers who [were] one step ahead. Still, I obtained a good fifth placement and six more points." In the GP2 series, the driver with the most points at the end of the season is awarded the championship.
Raffaele concluded his statement by saying, "Considering that it was my first official race with my new team (Russian Time), I cannot complain. In about 10 days, in Monte Carlo, I aim to do even better."
JAS is proud to sponsor Raffaele and they, like him, are excited to see him continue to improve and gain points! Watch the GP2 series to keep up with Raffaele and cheer him on!
