From aspiring doctor to JAS India Managing Director, Sonal's journey is a testament to the power of passion, resilience, and dedication.
From Summer Job to Managing Director: Sonal Singhal's Journey in Logistics

Sonal Singhal never planned to work in freight forwarding. She had always aspired to be a doctor. Fate, however, had other plans for her when she stumbled upon a summer job in a freight forwarding company. Little did she know that this serendipitous opportunity would lay the foundation for her inspiring career in logistics. 

Fast forward more than 20 years, and now a seasoned veteran in the industry, Sonal joined JAS in 2020, where her initial days were met with many challenges. With no time for doubt or hesitation, she faced them head-on. Stepping into the role of Director of Sales & Marketing for India, she embarked on a journey of building a team from scratch during a global pandemic, and leading sales – something she had never done before. "While I couldn't travel and meet teams and customers in person, I was able to use that extra time to double down on the behind-the-scenes work," she recounts. 

Sonal's abilities and talents did not go unnoticed. In less than a year, she was named as Managing Director of India – making her one of just two female Managing Directors at JAS. Under her leadership, JAS India has experienced a change of culture coupled with remarkable growth and has become a pivotal player in the logistics space.  

She is humble in all her accomplishments but recognizes there is still work to be done.  

"I take pride in my role, but I also feel like I have a responsibility to mentor more women in this space, for leadership roles," she affirms, emphasizing the importance of mentorship, representation, and empowerment. As a woman navigating a predominantly male-dominated industry, Sonal acknowledges the challenges she's faced. "There are certain gender biases that still exist, it takes time to break those stigmas," she observes. Despite these obstacles, Sonal remains resilient, offering words of encouragement to aspiring women in the field. "Don't give up, and just keep doing your best," she advises, embodying perseverance and determination. 

She is passionate about the powerful role of encouragement and mentorship, as she knows first-hand how it feels when someone believes in you more than you believe in yourself. She recalls what made her stay on at her first freight forwarding company, "I actually didn't want to stay, but the head of the organization loved my work and encouraged me that I could succeed. I think the faith and belief he showed in me then was something that influenced me to stay. And history repeated itself at JAS, where leadership has entrusted the same confidence in me and gave me an opportunity which I couldn't have dreamed for myself, at least not so soon. This is a great sign at JAS with male allies promoting inclusivity and driving the change." 

Sonal remembers how that empowerment made her feel and now ingrains the same sentiment into her leadership philosophy. "Failures are yours, and success belongs to the team," she asserts, embodying a collaborative approach to leadership. She champions democratic decision-making and fosters a culture of open communication and feedback, recognizing the value of diverse perspectives. 

In addition to her professional endeavors, Sonal is a devoted mother of two teenage boys and is a loving daughter. Balancing her career with family responsibilities, she finds fulfillment in nurturing her children and maintaining strong ties with her parents – all with the support of her spouse, without which it would have been impossible. "I'm trying my best to raise them as men a society would like to see," Sonal lovingly shares. 

Sonal's journey is a testament to the power of passion, resilience, and dedication. As she continues to pave the way for women in logistics, her impact extends far beyond the boardroom, inspiring future generations of female leaders.

In a bold move to address the need for reducing carbon emissions in the shipping industry, the International Maritime Organization introduced groundbreaking regulations concerning energy efficiency and carbon intensity for all ships.
New IMO Regulations: Introducing Carbon Intensity Measures into Ocean Freight

In a bold move to address the need for reducing carbon emissions in the shipping industry, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) introduced groundbreaking regulations concerning energy efficiency and carbon intensity for all ships. These measures require ships to calculate their attained Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI) to determine energy efficiency and to initiate data collection to report their annual operational carbon intensity indicator (CII) and CII rating. 

Understanding the Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI):

The EEXI is a score given to ships based on their energy efficiency. Ships attained EEXI will be compared to a required EEXI based on an applicable reduction factor expressed as a percentage relative to the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) baseline. Each ship's calculated attained EEXI value must be below the required EEXI to meet the minimum energy efficiency standard. 

Exploring the Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) Rating:

The CII is set to rank and monitor the carbon efficiency of each vessel concerning the cargo carried, and the distance traveled. The actual annual operational CII achieved must be documented and verified against the required annual operational CII, allowing the operational carbon intensity rating to be determined. The rating ranges from A to E (where A is the best), and the threshold requirements will become stricter year over year.

Impact:

  • Environmental Benefits: The primary goal of these IMO regulations is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). By measuring and monitoring energy efficiency, shipping companies can identify areas for improvement and optimize their operations to minimize carbon footprints.
  • Technological Advancements: These regulations will encourage the development and adopting of cleaner technologies within the maritime sector, fostering innovation and creating a demand for sustainable solutions.

Challenges:

  • Compliance Costs: Implementing the EEXI and CII measures will require investments in ship upgrades, retrofitting, and enhanced operational practices. For shipowners and operators, this could pose a significant financial challenge, particularly for older vessels.
  • Disruptions to Shipping Schedules and Supply Chains: As the cost of technological advancements is high, ships implement fuel-saving measures like slow-steaming, which can lead to longer transit times, affecting the predictability and reliability of cargo delivery.
  • Data Collection and Reporting: The accurate measurement and reporting of a vessel's carbon intensity require reliable data collection systems. Shipowners must adapt to new reporting standards and overcome potential technical barriers in gathering and transmitting data.

Conclusion:

Implementing the Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI) and Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) measures marks a significant step towards reducing carbon emissions in the shipping industry. While they offer environmental benefits, they also present challenges, including compliance costs and potential disruptions to shipping schedules. Collaboration among stakeholders, technological advancements, and regulatory support are crucial to navigating these challenges.

JAS recently executed a complex air freight project linking China, the United Kingdom, and France for a major French pharmaceutical launch, demonstrating expertise in handling large shipments.
JAS Successfully Executes Air Freight Project Linking China, Great Britain & France

Recently, JAS successfully executed a large air freight project connecting China, the United Kingdom, and France. The project catered to a prominent French pharmaceutical company's highly anticipated product launch, highlighting JAS's ability to handle large shipments with precision and efficiency. The Toulouse Branch Manager of JAS France, Khalid Aabiza, played a key role in securing the business and overseeing the project's execution.


The French pharmaceutical company's product launch in the United Kingdom required the transportation of a vast number of paper containers/cups from China. With over 400 pallet cargoes divided into three lots, each carrying strict deadlines, the challenge was immense. The urgency to meet these deadlines and the need for high visibility and real-time updates on cargo status presented critical objectives for the customer.


Addressing these challenges head-on, JAS provided a comprehensive solution that showcased its expertise and commitment to excellence. Through effective communication with the shipper in China, the JAS team optimized the capacity plan, ensuring flexibility and streamlined execution. The JAS team offered a full solution within just five days, leveraging optimal carrier combinations and strategic partnerships with multiple large airlines.


To meet the customer's requirements for real-time updates and high visibility, the JAS Shanghai team collaborated closely with teams in France and the United Kingdom, sharing daily planning and monitoring sheets. This seamless communication and coordination played a key role in the project's success.


The project culminated in the safe and timely delivery of over 500 pallets and 700+ CBM of cargo to London Heathrow Airport (LHR). JAS's execution and dedication earned appreciation from the customer, solidifying its position as a reliable partner for complex logistics operations.


With this success, JAS reaffirms its position as an industry leader capable of handling large-scale logistics with precision and timeliness. As the logistics landscape continues to evolve, JAS's commitment to customer satisfaction and operational excellence remains strong.

JAS Japan Nagoya office
JAS Japan Opens its New Office in Nagoya

JAS Japan is pleased to announce that it relocated its Nagoya branch to a larger and more modern office space to accommodate its business growth at the end of August.

Established in 2001, the Nagoya office began as a small sales branch. However, by 2014, the Nagoya branch became fully operational. It expanded its services with an office at Nagoya Centrair Airport to offer in-house air freight consolidation and customs clearance services to clients.

With the opening of the new location, the Nagoya branch will be serving as a platform for investment and growth with the addition of a brand-new ocean freight export operations team.

The Nagoya branch also offers a strategic connotation due to its geographic location in the Aichi prefecture, the fourth largest metropolis in Japan. As a manufacturing powerhouse, the city represents just over 11% of Japan’s GDP and is the center of the Japanese automotive, aerospace, and machinery industries.

Please note our new address.

JAS India new headquarters.
JAS India Elevates Its Game with Office Relocation

In keeping with its mission and momentum for growth, JAS India recently announced a move for its corporate office. Investing in a modern workspace at a prime location, JAS India continues to provide team members with access to collaborative work environments with reliable infrastructure.  The new building’s unique architecture, color and design represent the true spirit of JAS India.  

The move to its new location marks the beginning of another chapter in JAS India’s history. A soft opening for the new corporate office location happened on August 20. Tomas Sonntag, Executive Vice President of Asia Pacific, Sonal Singhal, Managing Director of JAS India, and Stefano Olmi, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Asia Pacific, presided over the ribbon-cutting ceremony.  

To celebrate the move to its brand-new India headquarters, JAS India also launched its JAS India Reload Program. This innovative program represents the changed culture and identity of the subsidiary and sets the platform for its ambitious growth plans in India.

It is a pleasure to be a part of JAS India's rebirth, this is what I would like to call it[a rebirth]since the ultimate intention really was to bring the JAS global corporate culture to India too, culture that really never existed before in JAS India. It was definitely a tough endeavor, it is a tough endeavor to change the DNA of a company, [to change]at all how it functions, because naturally every human being is not really so comfortable with change, therefore sometimes Sonal and I had to face some really tough decisions. But the outcome of these decisions ultimately is the results you see today in this organization. This new office with it's unique architecture, colors, and spirit really represents cutting away from the past, it shows the true colors of JAS India, it shows its new identity, and you should be proud of it. You should feel really a part of it because people are the ones who ultimately make the difference. " Stefano Olmi JAS VP Sales & Market, Asia Pacific

Marco Civardi, JAS China CEO
JAS China Welcomes Marco Civardi 

JAS Worldwide is pleased to welcome our new JAS China CEO, Marco Civardi. An experienced executive, Marco hails innovation and leads with a dynamic approach.    

Marco began his career in international supply chain industry back in 1997. Thanks to his hard work and dedication, he successfully transitioned from working with a leading UK cargo airline to performing a sales role in Milano for a Swiss multinational logistics firm. In addition, he reached an intermediate level of proficiency in the Japanese language while performing in Japan first as Business Development Manager and, subsequently, as Country Head of Sales & Marketing.  

Marco’s professional background is centered in the Asia Pacific region, where he has held several leadership roles with global logistics firms driving results in mature economies and emerging markets.     

Motivated by his continuous improvement mindset, Marco studied for his MBA in Australia and became an Accredited Certified Coach in Singapore. In terms of leadership style, one of Marco’s key focuses is on nurturing local talents so that the newly acquired coaching skills are relevant to support the ‘’people make the difference’’ core value of JAS.  

His most recent assignment was in the capacity of Area Managing Director for a Danish logistic firm. After an initial accountability for Vietnam and Cambodia, Marco’s responsibility broadened as Myanmar and Laos were also added.  In 2019, after an internal strategic realignment, Marco was selected to lead the newly integrated division of the Danish firm with responsibilities over a team of 2,100 people, logistics footprint of 240,000 square meters and annual revenues in excess of USD $1.3 billion in 2020.   

Marco’s versatility and extensive experience in the Asia Pacific region make him ideal to lead JAS China. “I am confident we have found the right person to lead the China Group through the current market difficulties, but more so to transform and prepare the China Group to master the challenges of the years to come,” said Tomas Sonntag, Executive Vice President of JAS APAC. “With 23 years working in very different markets and organizations across Asia, Marco is a well-rounded leader who aims for excellence by pursuing new paths.”

Christian Jensen, JAS Global Account Director- APAC
People Making a Difference: Christian Jensen

JAS is always excited to welcome new team members and strives to help them grow and succeed from day one. This is exactly what happened for Christian Jensen when he joined JAS Germany as a Business Development Manager in 2016. In his role, he took advantage of the resources and support found from both local colleagues and the global JAS network. By late 2017 he was effectively managing large accounts and developing worldwide contacts as he worked to help clients meet their goals while providing them with the highest level of service.  

Christian’s success continued as he became a Trade Lane Manager for Southeast Asia. In only three and a half years, his enthusiasm and commitment, combined with support from the JAS team, led to another promotion. As the new National Account Manager/Director he found continued success growing JAS’ presence on the Southeast Asia trade lane.

Recently Christian was presented with the opportunity to join the Asia Pacific team (APAC) as a Global Account Director. He knew this position would allow him to work with some of the most talented and dedicated people in the industry, increase his day-to-day responsibilities and provide continued opportunities for personal development.  With these opportunities in mind, he eagerly accepted the position and moved to Malaysia where he continues to provide the personalized service JAS is known for.

The past five years have moved quickly as he went from a local office to Global Account Director. Looking back, he gives credit to JAS and the people who helped him along the way. “We know JAS is known to our clients as a place where people make the difference, but it holds true within JAS as well. The people here really do make the difference and that kind of environment encourages success for team members and clients alike.”  

JAS can give you the opportunity and support to learn and grow. If you are ready to make a difference like Christian, JAS is the place for you.

China Announces New FTZs to Boost the Economy

On the 21st of September, the State Council of the People’s Republic of China issued the Notice [GuoFa (2020) No. 10] on “Issuing the General Plan for the Beijing, Hunan and Anhui Pilot Free Trade Zones and the Regional Expansion Plan of the Zhejiang Pilot Free Trade Zone”, announcing the increase of the existing Pilot Free Trade Zones to include three new zones in Beijing, Anhui, and Hunan and to further expand the Zhejiang Pilot Free Trade Zone.

The recent expansion of the project will bring the total number of Pilot FTZs in China to 21; these FTZs are important pilot projects which assist the development of market reformation in the rest of China. Each of the pilot zones has been attributed specific tasks and has received special market considerations to reflect so.

The Beijing Pilot FTZ will be focused on science-tech innovation, international commerce, and high-tech industries, covering up to 119 km2, and will contribute, together with the existing Hebei Pilot FTZ and Tianjin Pilot FTZ, to promote the development of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region.

The Hunan Pilot FTZ will include several areas in Changsha, Yueyang, and Chenzhou, to promote and develop the Central China region and the corridor between the Yangtze River Economic Belt and the Greater Bay area in Southern China. The Pilot FTZ aims to become an advanced manufacturing center.

The Anhui Pilot FTZ, the third new FTZ announced in 2020, would include three areas in Hefei, Wuhu, and Bengbu, focusing on the high-tech industries and promoting the further development of the Belt and Road Initiative.

The establishment of the FTZs in Hunan and Anhui is seen as a move to enable less-developed provinces to become more appealing to high-quality manufacturing, attract investment and boost efficiency, drawing investment in from their bordering provinces of Guangdong and Jiangsu.

The Notice also announces the expansion of the already existing Zhejiang Pilot Free Trade Zone by adding 119 km2 covering three areas in Ningbo, Hangzhou, and Jinyi and aiming to develop an international trading hub for commodities and agricultural products and to become a vital innovation center.

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.

JAS Worldwide is dedicated to meeting customer demand during the Covid-19 situation by launching additional flight operations in the most important air corridors:

  • Europe to USA and back to Europe

JAS is enhancing its air service offerings as a result of the worldwide coronavirus pandemic, which is having a dramatic impact on capacity in the airfreight market.

“Because of the volatility of the situation, JAS is bringing its considerable air freight experience to bear to meet the needs of our customers” said Gregor Vrhunc, Senior Vice President, Global Head of Air Freight.
