JAS Introduces Blue World Atlantic

By
September 22, 2020

The current pandemic has caused shipping disruptions across the globe.  

With a 70% reduction in passenger flights since February 2020, the overall global air freight capacity is down about 25% from this time last year.  Limited space on limited flights means frequent delays and interruptions of supply chains globally.

With the unpredictable availability of cargo space, how do we regain control of air freight to ensure service in such a critical time?  

The traditional air freight model is no longer a realistic option, instead Flight Operations are the key for maintaining a reliable and uninterrupted supply chain by providing door-to-door control of the shipping process. With a Flight Operation, every step of the process - from the time the cargo is picked up to its final delivery - is meticulously managed by the service provider.  

Shipments are processed through facilities controlled by the service provider, both at origin and destination. This system avoids the typical congestion at airport hubs, reduces overall transit time, and increases control.

The aircraft themselves offer unmatched flexibility to meet all cargo needs. Freighters have the capability to move normal and specialized cargo such as dangerous goods, oversized pieces, and shipments requiring refrigeration such as perishable and pharma.  

Lastly, a prime network of delivery options carries the cargo to its ultimate destination.

In early August JAS introduced BLUE WORLD ATLANTIC, a weekend roundtrip Flight Operation between Chicago and Frankfurt, utilizing B 747 – 400 F Nose-Load for optimum loading capabilities. The BLUE WORLD ATLANTIC prime schedule is the best solution for supporting customers in the transatlantic air freight corridor!

If your business could benefit from a regular flight operation in the transatlantic corridor contact a local JAS representative for more information.

JAS South Africa Aids in Critical JAS Italy PPE Shipment

During the peak of the Italian Covid-19 crisis, JAS South Africa received instructions from JAS Italy to handle an urgent PPE shipment for the PROTEZIONE CIVILE ITALIANA. 11,343 cartons containing surgical masks needed to be uplifted from Durban, transported to Johannesburg and sent by airfreight to Italy.

The necessary arrangements with JAS South Africa’s transporter were swiftly made and all of the cargo was uplifted on 12 trucks and moved up to Johannesburg. Upon arrival, the merchandise was palletized into two shipments, respectively of 251 and 154 Pallets. Simultaneously, negotiations were taking place with various airlines for Charter options and our long-term partner, Cargolux, was chosen as the airline of choice. The two shipments were then booked on two Charters, the first one departing on the 21st of March and the second on the 28th of March. Arrangements with Cargolux continued being processed as relevant traffic rights were needed to be obtained in order for the Charters to move directly into Italy from South Africa.

The first shipment was delivered to Cargolux on the 19th of March, and the flight departed as scheduled. The second shipment proved to be more challenging, as South Africa was on the verge of a Nationwide lockdown, which began on the 27th of March. However, thanks to JAS South Africa’s efforts, the shipment made it out on time and was successfully loaded on board the flight which departed on schedule. This second shipment was on the last Cargolux flight out of South Africa, which was Day 1 of the South Africa lockdown.

Job well done and congratulations to the JAS South Africa Team! People continue to make the difference!

JAS Supports the Medical Industry

On March 31st the HARTMANN GROUP began utilizing JAS’ charted flight operations to facilitate the supply of masks throughout Europe. Based in Heidenheim, Germany, HARTMANN is a leading provider of medical and hygiene products, with its core expertise being in wound treatment, infection prevention, surgical supplies, and personal healthcare.

HARTMANN turned to JAS to help it supply critically needed N95 masks to the governments of Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands.  These shipments are flown by JAS from Shanghai to Frankfurt for distribution to not only government entities, but also to pharmacies for wider distribution to non-governmental organizations and the public at large.

JAS continues to leverage its expertise in chartered flight operations, export and import clearance, and general distribution services for HARTMANN as the Covid-19 pandemic continues to put pressure on supply chains throughout the globe. JAS is committed to supporting efforts of customers like HARTMANN as they work to provide medical supplies when and where they are needed most.

When asked to comment on PPE supply chain challenges, Thomas-Garry Stiller, Senior VP of Procurement at HARTMANN remarked, “Sourcing those masks is one thing, but how to get them to Europe? Answer: JAS.”

JAS offers ongoing chartered flight operations between Shanghai and the cities of Frankfurt, Milan, and Chicago. In support of these air corridors, JAS also maintains distribution networks via its locations in the United States, Latin America, and Europe.

Italian Protezione Civile Entrusts JAS with Relief Shipment

JAS is proud to say that Protezione Civile trusted JAS with shipments vital to keeping the supply chain functioning. JAS is managing charter flights from and to several countries around the world to ensure continuity of the supply chain during the current emergency situation we, as a species face.

JAS China and JAS Italy cooperated once more in March 2020 to handle another chartered flight of relief supplies and JAS Italy is also providing domestic distribution of relief material to all the Italian regions. Specifically, JAS handled another charter flight (AN124) departed from Pudong Int'l Airport on 31st March, carrying disaster-relief materials. Off-Loading phase of this Charter flight was supervised by a special JAS employee, our own JAS Italy Managing Director, Leonardo Baldi. Baldi was the keynote speaker during an interview done for a national Italian television broadcast. During his speech, Baldi explained how JAS Italy is acting on behalf of the Italian Civil Defense and distributing relief material for many hospitals and regions throughout Italy.

JAS is proud to deliver logistics support to the Italian Protezione Civile, whom work so hard day in and day out to support the entire Italian population, and to provide the aid needed by doctors and nurses working around the clock to save lives.

JAS Charters Relief Supplies from China to Italy

These are difficult times we are living through amid the Covid-19 pandemic that has already brought major economic disruptions around the world and has particularly hard hit the country of Italy and the Italian population.  While this is happening around the world JAS is actively working to support the replenishment of important disaster-relief materials desperately needed in all Italian hospitals.

Thanks to the longtime partnership between our Chinese and Italian Subsidiaries,  JAS China and JAS Italy were able to organize a chartered cargo plane within a limited time frame that departed on the 26th of March, 2020 from Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport in China carrying disaster-relief materials needed to support doctors, nurses, and those working  on the front line against this invisible enemy, COVID-19.

This shipment included 1,000,000 Medical-grade N95 respiratory masks, 2,000,000 disposable face masks and 111,000 medical-grade disposable protective clothing, providing essential protection to healthcare professionals working  around the clock in all the hospitals around Italy.

Together we stand.

JAS Ships 61 Luxury Vehicles in 10 Days

When a luxury Italian auto manufacturer was faced with the challenge of shipping 61 vehicles (2 spot shipments of 19 vehicles and the next of 42 vehicles) from Italy to Japan in only 10 days, they knew they could turn to JAS to get the job done.

With the majority of the vehicles being SUVs, dedicated charter flights were not the best option. With an SUV the vehicles' dimensions limit the number of vehicles that can be loaded on board a chartered plane. Therefore the JAS Team decided to ship all the vehicles on multiple scheduled commercial freighter flights.​

With the long-term partnerships JAS has developed with many airlines over the years, the team was able to secure 3 airlines to ship all vehicles with no problem. The vehicles were shipped out on scheduled commercial flights within the allotted time frame.

This challenge demonstrates the importance of the collaboration between JAS teams and the airlines with which JAS partners. The synergy between the Air Product Management and Operation Air teams of the JAS Torino branch in Italy and the Global Account & Automotive teams allowed JAS to successfully accomplish the goal of the challenge given to them and achieve full customer satisfaction.

JAS / JAS PO&G Italy Take on a New Challenge
