Ducati is a famous Italian motorcycle manufacturer and has 90 years of history. Passion represents the Ducati spirit. The biggest global Ducati event, World Ducati Week, also known as WDW, is the only international event to attract Ducatists from all over the world. The annual event is held at the historic racetrack of Misano Adriatico (RN), and creates three days of pure "RED" passion, including conferences, moto-shows, parties and races.
Ducatists in Taiwan also experience the same “RED” passion and team spirit during the Taiwan Ducati Week. KEVIN IND & AGRI CO., LTD, the sole agent of Ducati, held the 2017 Taiwan Ducati Week on October 21st- 22nd, a high-profile and unmissable event for Ducatists, and saw more than 300 bikes from all over Taiwan join the event. This annual family-friendly event started in 2004 and has continued being more interesting and better every year. Rousing more interest this year was Ducati Headquarters shipping one Desmosedici GP14 to Taiwan, the Ducati Racing Team’s MotoGP racing bike of 2014, offering Ducatists a chance for close contact with this moving art piece during the event.
The 2017 Taiwan Ducati Week program included a Ducati themed banquet, amazing show and multiple lucky prize winners from drawings for Ducatists. JAS Worldwide (Taiwan) Ltd. as the exclusive forwarder of Ducati Taiwan and one of the 12 sponsors of this event offered two gifts up for lucky drawers. It made Ducatists high in “Red Party”.

JAS has helped Parker with several challenging situations relating to changes in import regulations and helped Parker sustain its flow of product to its customers.

Prada Japan nominated JAS Japan to handle the shipping of materials required for the renovation of the external facade of their shop in Ala Moana Center Shopping Mall in Hawaii, USA.
The commodities of the shipment were large marble slabs, windows and fittings whose sizes are considered out of gauge. Unfortunately, there are no carriers in Japan that could offer Open Top containers or RO/RO service from Japan to Honolulu, and this shipment was urgently needed in Hawaii. Despite these challenges, JAS Japan managed to come out with an ideal solution where the shipment not only will arrive in a timely manner, but also came with an affordable price tag.
First, JAS Japan engaged experts to look at each of the items and found that it was possible to fit all the items into normal covered containers with some careful planning. In addition, to ensure all the items were well protected throughout the journey, JAS Japan custom-made some of the crates where the tallest fittings fit perfectly into the containers. During the filling of the containers, Senior Logistics Manager of Prada Japan visited our DC and witnessed the entire operation. He was very impressed with JAS' professionalism and the care that the staff gave in handling these items.
Eventually, all of the items were packaged into two 40’High Cube containers which were shipped out in time to Honolulu for the re-opening of the shop.
When customers in Indonesia need to move large shipments around the world, JAS Indonesia is quickly becoming a preferred partner in the market. With our expertise and ability to find solutions, JAS Indonesia again and again proves to be up to the task. Indonesia’s growing manufacturing industry serves the market of Southeast Asia with many products including custom fit Fire Engines.
PT. Ziegler Indonesia manufactures and exports international quality firefighting and rescue vehicles to various countries. They are also a leader in the Indonesian market as a trusted partner of oil, gas, and mining companies. Many government agencies also choose PT. Ziegler Indonesia due to the high quality of their products.
JAS Indonesia is proud to announce that PT. Ziegler Indonesia has chosen us as a trusted partner to handle exports throughout Asia. As one of our VIP customers, we have handled several different sized trucks to countries including Vietnam, Hong Kong and Sri Lanka.
Moving such equipment requires special handling and coordination. JAS prioritizes these shipments successfully delivering them to the port, lashing as needed and loading them to the vessel. JAS partners at destinations and then takes over and helps to conclude the door to door moves. JAS has moved six such vehicles in 2016 and projects the number to more than double in the first half of 2017.
In addition to the vehicle exports, JAS now manages the import supply chain for Ziegler ensuring that parts and materials from around the world arrive in time to meet Ziegler’s production schedules.
With expertise in the Indonesian market, backed by the strength of our network, PT. JAS Worldwide Indonesia continues to grow and keep our diverse customers satisfied.
JAS Singapore had the privilege to participate in the new upcoming Airport Terminal 4 Project with one of its regular customers.
Before the operation, JAS Singapore sat down with the customer to gain a better understanding of the operation along with their concerns and requirements. The customer informed JAS Singapore that they required the delivery and positioning of 30 X-Ray Machines along with its complementary accessories to the Airport Terminal 4 construction site of a secured area. After gathering all the information, JAS Singapore knew that instead of the usual solutions, they needed to provide a Total Supply Chain Solution for this operation.
In order to ensure that the delivery and positioning of the machines were handled correctly, JAS Singapore gathered internal and external experts to discuss how to manage the whole operation better. After finalizing the details, all personnel involved in the operation were required to undergo a test that was set up by the authorities so that they could secure the pass to enter into the secured area.
After several construction site visits, planning and close co-ordination with all partners, JAS Singapore was able to execute this operation smoothly and to our customer's satisfaction.
JAS China has strived to develop warehousing services that offer a flexible, one-stop solution for all types of clients. The latest achievement can be found in Shanghai, where JAS has been chosen to handle the warehousing service for Completely Knock Down (CKD) parts and finished goods, one of the world’s top tier automotive suppliers.
The warehouse is strategically located at Chuansha Town, Pudong New District in Shanghai, which is close to both the Pudong Airport (17 km) and Waigaoqiao Port (24km). It provides non-bonded logistics services with a storage capacity of 4,850 sqm. The automotive client has occupied 2,600 sqm with 3,400 pallet positions set up for the client.
This is equivalent to more than 50 percent of the warehouse space.
The scope of service provided to the automotive client includes the following:
During the implementation of the warehousing service for this client, JAS had to simultaneously receive the CKD parts and replenishment from the client's previously owned in-plant warehouse and relocate the parts and finished goods to the JAS Warehouse. Even though this implementation is more complex than usual with the organized effort of the JAS China warehouse team, the relocation was smoothly accomplished in two months and now the service is extended to full operation of Pick & Pack services and JIT delivery to the production line.
Recently, the client has completed a 2016 annual stock take and external audit at the JAS warehouse, the results were positive and proved the success of the JAS China warehousing service. Warehousing is always one of the most important elements in the one-stop service solution, and we look forward to expand our warehousing service to more clients in China.
China is the number one mobile device consumer in the world with over 1.2 billion mobile phone users and 370 billion tablet users, which is 19% & 32% of the global market respectively for each product.
A well-established U.S. technology customer with a global footprint and growing market share in China. Their products are aimed at servicing the mobile device industry, so they decided to partner with JAS Forwarding to further develop their growing China consumer base. Customs in entries in China can be complex and inconsistent which can cause unnecessary delays, penalties, storage charges & excessive processing fees.
This technology customer consulted with JAS Seattle & JAS Corp Trade-lane to provide a long term solution to a customs challenge in China. Their challenge was that China customs claimed their products required a CCC (China Compulsory Certificate) in order for their entry to be processed, however the CIQ rejected their application by claiming the certificate was not required based upon the specifics provided.
This grey area between the separate government agencies in China caused lengthy delays, additional cost and most importantly hurt the company’s credibility in the China market place. JAS China used their expertise in the customs market to apply for a long term binding ruling for the products in question.
Since this customer’s product is very unique in the marketplace, JAS was able to get an exception ruling to the CCC certificate for their products in question. JAS provided a detailed outline on all documents required, expected processing & delivery timeline so the customer could manage their customer expectations and get to the market faster. This solution not only saves thousands of dollars per shipment, but most importantly it will help this customer further develop the ever growing China marketplace which is a key to both companies success.
An existing customer of JAS Forwarding, a tech-based Shanghainese firm, approached JAS to handle an out-of-the-norm business situation for one of their most important customers. The shipment commodity being a storage tank which would be filled with Nitrogen gas upon arriving at it's destination, the interior of which must be ensured to be clean and free of liquid and moisture when it arrived at the consignee destination.
Ray Zhao, Senior Sales Executive and his team took up this challenge and began by analyzing the special requirements and handling concerns of this project. After thoroughly understanding the situation, they decided to work with a JAS Projects Oil & GAS office who have similar expertise in handling such commodities and were then able to develop a customized solution for the transportation of the Nitrogen gas.
First, all the shipments are covered with tarp except for the pressure gauge which is on the surface the tank. Careful handling of the tanks is ensured so that no damage is inflicted on the tank which the consignee can identify via the indicator on the pressure gauge. In addition, both bulk cargo vessel and container vessel are offered to the customers so they have more options and flexiblity to meet their customer’s strict delivery date. With such a detailed proposal, JAS stood out from the other forwarders and won the trust and approval to handle the business.
With a good record track, the consignee who is a US-listed chemical corporation now recommends JAS to their vendors and JAS is now receiving new enquiries from them.
We believe professionalism and dedication to customers will continue to bring us new opportunities, and the success with this customer is just one of those cases.
The operation took place in December 2015 and involved three airplane charters from France to Jakarta. The project involved five units of towable X-ray systems as well as four large crated X-ray machines.
The trailer chassis had a weight of approximately 28,000 kilograms each and these units are designed in a way that they can be towed by a standard prime mover from one site to the other.
The first Antonov AN124 was arranged from France in mid-December and the last two during the Christmas season. All units were delivered on time due to the excellent partnership and cooperation within the JAS network.
