Of his appointment, Jordy says: “During my years working with JAS I have witnessed the company continuously grow and develop itself – JAS today is vastly different then JAS 16 years ago. My long tenure and experience on both sides of the Atlantic will allow me to contribute toward growing the Pharma & Healthcare vertical, and I am truly looking forward to this exciting new opportunity.”
JAS is delighted to welcome Jordy to this new position and is confident he will play a key role in upholding and continuously improving the service quality provided to our valued clients as we continue to invest in the pharma and healthcare logistics industry.

In May of 2020 longtime JAS partner Aviagen® and sister company Hubbard® required a large shipment of live, day-old chicks be transported to Bangladesh from the United States and France. These chicks needed to arrive the next day to their destination, safely and in good health. With the successful delivery of the chicks to Aviagen's customer in Bangladesh the broiler breeding stock will produce 110,393,893 kilograms (243,376,874 pounds) of chicken meat for the people living in Bangladesh.
This important shipment had to go out amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and the restrictions it has brought to the shipping industry, as well as required expertise to navigate the mine field of other special requirements in order to successfully deliver this live cargo next day, safely, and efficiently.
JAS Live Animals regularly organizes airfreight shipments to various destinations, and this shipment was important to Aviagen and marked a historic shipment for the company. Quoted from Aviagen "Several characteristics contribute to the historic nature of this shipment. First, it represents the most grandparent and parent stock chicks ever to be exported internationally in a single shipment. And it is the first-time multiple brands of multi-generational chicks destined for different poultry companies have shared an international flight." JAS is honored to be part of such a historical event in the Live Animal Industry and to continue to work with Aviagen on future shipments.
This shipment required specialized pallets to be built, as well as overnight feeding to be done for the chicks on their long journey. The pallets, built in the USA, had to merge with the pallets built in France, by a competitor. Thanks to the dedication of the night shift, through their feedings and follow-ups the chicks were under constant care, and thanks to the partnership and clear communication between the customers, forwarders, and airlines this critical shipment was successful.
“This is really where the JAS motto People Make the Difference comes to life. Passion! Passion! Passion! We are dealing with live animals and not general cargo, you must have passion, dedication, and commitment to the cause. And those are the qualities that proudly makes JAS different from the competition, to the point where it seems like you are making the most incredible accomplishments for your customers, but for you it simply has become your normal daily routine.” JAS Live Animals Division Manager, Carlo Rebuffi
JAS is proud to have a strong relationship with Aviagen, handling shipments like this for them for nearly 2 decades. Starting in the United States, JAS worked hard to gain their trust and earn credibility with them, expanding into Europe and gaining the needed expertise to ship such a commodity as live animals to the point that JAS developed its own Live Animals division. This division continues to grow and has a dedicated team of experts willing to go over and beyond to deserve the business of our partners.
In today’s environment, shippers are faced with numerous challenges, from the immediate need to replenish drastically reduced inventory levels to budgeting logistics costs in a highly unpredictable environment. Blank sailings, carrier solvency, and steadily building port congestion is resulting in increased supply chain risk and lead time fluctuations. Global air cargo capacity has been reduced by over 25% making access to space more constrained due to overall demand and increased dwell time due to testing and customs inspections of PPE goods.
JAS is working closely with our customers to offer solutions that balance planning with responsiveness and agility, while working to provide service options that mitigate the increased costs and risks that exist with current market conditions.
Our Flight Operations solutions address the immediate and urgent needs of our customers. We have scheduled weekly flights from the following areas:
China to the USA with connections to Latin America
Europe to the USA with connections to Latin America
USA to Europe
China to Europe
Additional flights will be added as needed.
JAS SEA-AIR services provide an alternative solution to customers requiring shorter lead times than traditional ocean freight while providing a lower cost option to air freight. We currently offer hubs in Singapore and Korea that connect Asia with the rest of the world.
For traditional ocean FCL and LCL services, our ocean team aligns our carrier allocations and schedules with our customers’ forecasts. Services such as container and order management offer additional value to our standard ocean freight services.
While our current priority is to work with your immediate needs, we do not want to lose sight of the need for long-term planning strategies so please contact us at email@example.com or reach out to your local JAS representative for more information.
For nearly 10 years JAS Italy has cooperated with primary Italian Government Institutions, chief among them, the Civil Protection Department for which JAS has been engaged for the last 6 years. Prior to the current situation, JAS Italy supported the Department during the last earthquake emergency in central Italy in 2017.
JAS continues to support Italian institutions during the current COVID-19 emergency, having once again been identified as one of their reliable suppliers of transportation and logistics on behalf of the Civil Protection Department. As a result, JAS has taken charge of their import/export distribution process, focusing its efforts on domestic destinations and regions.
Urgently needed Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) commodities are being moved on behalf of the Civil Protections Department to address the health crisis in Italy. Starting in February and continuing through today, JAS has thus far moved more than 50 million masks along with protective suits, visors, gloves, respirators, pulmonary ventilators, test tubes, and swabs. When the Covid-19 emergency surfaced, JAS initially arranged shipments from China, Brazil, and South Africa mainly via general cargo urgent flights. However as demand dramatically increased, JAS recognized that available volumes were not meeting the needs of its customers. As a result, JAS ramped up the use of charter flights to better meet customer requirements.
JAS works closely with all of its customers to meet their specific needs. The Civil Protection Dept supplies detailed distribution plans to JAS on daily basis for all deliveries throughout Italy, including the islands. All shipments arrive at Malpensa and Fiumicino warehouse hubs which are then sorted and labelled before sending on to their final destinations. Starting in February JAS has arranged more than 1200 of these dedicated overnight deliveries. JAS Italy also supervises and coordinates daily military flights from Milano and Rome, destined to north and southbound destinations in addition to on-wheels shuttles.
JAS is publicly recognized in the transportation market as a company able to handle medical supplies shipments with high professionalism on Covid-19 contrast.
Lombardy Region, as example, contacted and awarded JAS a contract for their shipping needs for the brand new FIERA MILANO hospital preparation; from beds to respirators, and everything else that was needed.
In other Covid-19 efforts, on April 9th, JAS Italy operated a dedicated charter flight from PVG to MXP for a private customer who had an urgent need to move in excess of 5 million masks and 20.000 protective suits. Despite the complexities, within a few short hours of the 747F landing, all the commodities were delivered to the customer’s warehouse.
Among its many capabilities during this pandemic, JAS has received and stored foreign country donations to It.GOV, often hosting a brief ceremony of goodwill, usually presided over by the local Ambassador of the donating country.
Additionally, JAS receives and stores PPE orders directly from national contracted suppliers of IT.GOV.
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.

These shipment contracts are related to the Mozambique LNG Projects, for the construction of 2 onshore LNG trains in Afungi (Palma).
With the success of these many shipments JAS is excited to see JAS Projects continue to assist in Afungi projects in the future. There will be new and interesting perspectives for 2020 as JAS Projects Italy plans to bid for the main Tender for another Afungi Project.
JAS Motorsport Logistics, based out of Europe, has been providing services for more than ten years for well-known car brands, acting as the logistics supplier for cars and car parts to a variety of race events around the globe.

The JAS Projects - Oil & Gas (JAS PO&G) scope of work on this large project was to arrange pre-carriage from the FCA( Free Carrier) Supplier in Italy, arrange full charters to Port Antwerp, and then receive cargo under hook up to the final job site.
This project consisted of several large modules. A few of the largest ones were L31 m x W6.3m x H 6.7m and GWT 170 Metric Tons. To ensure smooth planning and execution of the project, JAS PO&G flew our Project Manager and Transportation Engineer in for a pre-operations meeting and inspection of the freight. JAS PO&G Houston performed a detailed route study to determine the most feasible route, identifying civil work, route improvement, height barriers and permit requirements. JAS PO&G Houston pre-planned and closely coordinated with the Department of Transportation and utility/electrical companies to remove all the barriers and obstructions, in order to expedite permits within a reasonable time frame to meet the project delivery deadline.
All oversized cargo was self-unloaded on stands at Port Chioggia, for safe handling of the cargo and to avoid the high costs of hiring a crane. The JAS client's requirement was to stow all cargo under deck, considering the dimensions and height of the cargo JAS PO&G Houston narrowed down their choice to three carriers who would have suitable ships to accommodate all of this freight under deck. JAS PO&G Houston obtained specifcations of the ship and prepared detailed stowage plans along with the lifting, securing and lashing drawings on the nominated vessel. Our team, including the Transportation Engineer, Project Manager, and Surveyor were in attendance to supervise the loading, securing and lashing operation to ensure it met all safety standards both at the origin and discharge point in Antwerp.
JAS in Johannesburg was recently awarded the transportation and logistics contract for the Gateway to Space exhibition at the Johannesburg Convention Centre in South Africa.
Quick facts about the exhibition
Some of the articles you will see at the exhibition
Scope of work handled by JAS South Africa
Timing was critical as the exhibition started on the 1st June 2016, and time was not on our side.
20 x 40’cntrs were shipped ex Amsterdam to Johannesburg under a Carnet ATA. These containers had to be delivered in specific sequential order at specific times to facilitate the off-loading and unpacking on site.
Due to the fragility of the material, the Contractor Media 24 had to fly in a professional team to co-ordinate and facilitate the unpacking and assembling of the artifacts.
The exhibition will run for two months and then has to be re-exported to a country still to be determined in Europe. JAS will be appointed for the export.
The delivery fortunately went without any incidents and in true JAS fashion, we applied a personal touch to ensure service excellence.
Congratulations to the job well done by the JAS South Africa team, our Gateway to Space!
With the help of JAS’ Government Logistics Services team, the Finnish Air Force was able to temporarily import aircraft equipment to conduct an 18 month training mission at China Lake Naval Air Station, CA. First, aircraft and crew equipment cleared Customs on the flight line of Scott Air Force Base, the initial tech stop in the US. Special thanks to Indira Coomar and Ihab Nakhla for their detailed planning and execution; the process went off without a hitch.
In order to ensure that the naval expeditionary forces stay in the air collaborative effort between the Navy ATAC Program, Marine Corps, and JAS Government Logistics, the team needs to work together and focus on getting the job done the right way.
The Finnish Air Force's main combat fleet consists of Boeing F/A-18C and F/A-18D Hornet multi role fighters. In addition to aircraft, air surveillance radars and a range of simulators are included in the service's inventory.
The training mission runs through December, 2017, so AOG shipments will be a regular occurrence in addition to the routine maintenance activity involved with supporting four fighter jets.
JAS Government Logistics Services include:
Comprehensive & detailed Standard Operative Procedures for safe control of all aircraft assets
“Wheels Up” Customs Clearance to ensure that all Aircraft on Ground (AOG) shipments are not delayed
Dedicated Aircraft Logistics staff available 24/7 to react to the customers needs worldwide

JAS Motorsports is proud to be a sponsor of Marit Stromoy, the first and only woman in history to thus far win an F1 World Cup Event!
The tidal wave of interest generated by Marit Stromoy following her epic win in the Grand Prix of Sharjah last year continues, with the first woman in history to win an F1H2O Grand Prix being understandably recognized for her outstanding achievement back home in Norway.
The 39-year-old received the accolade of athlete of the year at a glittering awards gala in Sandefjord, ahead of a host of national and international sporting stars. “The award is a great recognition [for] the sport, in competition with other more well-known sports in Norway. It's not often a motorsport, especially powerboats, is even mentioned in these contexts.”
Stromoy has been in demand in the sport press and on national TV but has also crossed the sporting divide, guesting on prime time TV on Scandinavia’s number celebrity talk show appearing alongside Abba’s Bjørn Ulvaeus. “It’s been hectic to say the least. We've had a lot of nationwide media exposure and hopefully, it will help us in the very important chase for sponsorship that we're facing these days.”
The next show after receiving the award for Marit was the F1H2O season-opener in Dubai on March 2-4.
JAS is a proud sponsor and the logistics provider for Marit, and handles the logistics and transportation of all of her racing equipment for her races all over the world.
JAS PROJECTS – OIL & GAS recently transported a CO2 Stripper column from a fabricator yard in Jubail, Saudi Arabia, to a petrochemical project site located in Jubail Industrial City 2.
Transport the oversize column approximately 20 KM from yard to site for our EPC customer who was working on five different packages for this massive capital project.
Size of cargo - 92 M x 7.90 M x 7.20 M / 590 MT
TO CONSIDER: Safety in movement and equipment maneuverability after entering the project location - overcoming two critical turnings points to reach Chem-III Project site inside the Sadara Chemical Complex.
Due to the abnormal size, a comprehensive route study was done prior to transport to determine any restrictions on route. With the coordination and physical presence of JAS PROJECTS – Oil & Gas Engineering Department’s Head, we were able to ensure all transportation risks and safety aspects were covered.
Special ground work was done to prepare the travel surface to withstand the weight of the load and clearance of all other obstructions and fixtures were dealt with. Maximum ground bearing pressure while transporting this piece was 4.56 t/m2 and load per axle line / trailer was 30.37. Specialized total of 42 axle lines were used to transport this CO2 stripper to site on time, safely and successfully.
