On November 30, 2020, the ONE APUS container ship encountered severe weather conditions while in route to California. As a result, at least 1,816 containers were lost overboard in one of the largest container losses on record and several more were damaged due to a significant stack collapse.
The World Shipping Council reports that every year an average of 1,382 shipping containers are lost at sea. While JAS and other service providers do everything possible to mitigate risk the situation with ONE APUS is just one of many events highlighting the unpredictable, and uncontrollable, disasters that can damage or destroy cargo while in transit. In these circumstances, cargo insurance can help protect against financial losses. JAS can provide insurance policies for both international and domestic shipments. Our experts can help guide you in finding the best protection fit for you and your needs.
Many shippers believe that the carriers' will cover any losses incurred. While in some cases this is a possibility, it is easier said than done. To recover the loss, you must prove the cause of the loss and that the carrier directly caused the loss. Losses caused by acts of nature frequently have no legal recourse against the carrier. Even when the carrier is proven liable, the maximum recoverable amount is limited to a fraction of the value of the freight. It rarely covers the cargo's full replacement value, or any damages incurred from losses in productivity.
Considering the number of containers displaced/lost, experts are of the view that this incident on the ONE Apus could be the worst ever containership disaster with potential loss and costs running into hundreds of millions." Shipping and Freight Resource, Dec.5 2020
Beyond a carrier's liability limits, vessel owners can hold shippers liable for losses incurred to goods transported by claiming General Average. This is a maritime law principle whereby all stakeholders in a sea venture (shippers/consignees and shipowner) proportionally share losses resulting from a voluntary sacrifice incurred to save the vessel and cargo otherwise at risk. Suppose General Average is declared, and your cargo is neither damaged nor lost. In such cases, the marine insurer will cover the contributions you are due to pay before your cargo is released to make the onward journey, but this may be subject to an applicable deductible. Uninsured cargo owners must put up a cash bond before their cargo is released.
Through JAS, you can ship your cargo globally with a cost-effective Shipper's Interest insurance coverage, and in most cases, with zero deductible. In the event of a claim, JAS will administer the claim on your behalf, making reimbursement easy and headache-free. We produce the necessary paperwork, present the claim to insurers for efficient processing, organize and coordinate inspection surveys, and take any other steps required for the particular claim at hand. You need not be concerned with a General Average contribution because JAS's Shippers' Interest insurance also protects you and covers this extra cost without delay. JAS can therefore ensure that undamaged cargo is released to you as soon as possible.

Over the last several months JAS Thailand, in conjunction with JAS Italy, has been partnering with Schweitzer Project as they update one of the most popular and largest shopping malls in Bangkok. Schweitzer engaged JAS to ship furniture and refrigerators to the mall location starting in October.
Orathai Jitithikulchai, working out of Bangkok, led the JAS team that coordinated the necessary FCL shipments from Italy, Hungary, Poland, and China. The containers were unloaded in Bangkok and their contents meticulously delivered to the shopping mall based on detailed orders from the client. Considering the fragile nature of the goods, JAS performed the delicate process of delivery to the mall after-hours, usually from 10 pm until late in the night.
The JAS team put in substantial effort to carefully monitor the proper handling of the delivery, unpacking, and assembling of the furniture and refrigerators at the site. The attention to detail paid by JAS was praised by the client who qualified our overall performance as “great teamwork”.
Schweitzer was counting on JAS' expertise and experience to import and install the furniture and refrigerators. JAS Thailand is proud to accomplish such a comprehensive scope of service, from door-to-door. The results of the effort now allow mall visitors to enjoy an enhanced shopping experience.
JAS Worldwide, together with their business partner Global Airlift Solutions, has managed another successful and urgent charter operation from the USA to China carrying important medical and Coronavirus outbreak relief goods.
The Boing 747-400 departed on Saturday Feb 21 2020 from the Chicago O' Hare International Airport and arrived at the Shanghai Pudong International Airport on Sunday Feb 23rd at 16:51 local time. The plane carried 100 tons of freight, of which 50% were relief goods such as facial masks and disinfectants.
“JAS is proud to be a able to provide a quick and reliable solution for our customers that want to support their employees and business partners during a difficult time”, said Senior Director for Air Freight for JAS USA,
Dirk Ravensteiner. Capacity is extremely tight and flight cancellations after the outbreak of the Coronavirus have reduced available cargo capacity from and to China by more than 40%. Making shipping solutions more complicated.
JAS Worldwide is now also offering unique Sea/Air solutions to/from China. JAS Worldwide hopes to ensure that this is a suitable and alternative solution for shipments to cities in the Northern & Central part of China like Qingdao, Beijing, Tianjin & Dalian, Shanghai and Ningbo.

Organized by the China-Italy Chamber of Commerce (as “CICC”), Panda d’Oro Award 2018 and Annual Gala Dinner was hosted in Shanghai on June 9th, 2018. The award ceremony commended Italian and Chinese enterprises that have made excellent achievements in promoting bilateral trade between China and Italy. JAS China was honored with the “The Silk Road Panda Award" for its contribution and engagement in projects aimed at increasing connectivity along the new Silk Road. Bruce Ning, General Manager, and Mario Tasso, Head of Logistics of JAS Forwarding (China) Co., Ltd., attended the ceremony and received the award on JAS’s behalf.
Benefited by the promotion of ‘One Belt One Road’ policy by the Chinese Government, there has been significant development of rail infrastructures between China and Europe. Therefore, JAS China has now also extended its scope of business from traditional air freight, sea freight, warehousing, and logistics to rail freight between China and Europe, which is driven by strong consumer demand and limited air freight space in the market.
JAS China provides door-to-door FCL and LCL rail services on both Eastbound and Westbound, transporting light industrial goods, electronics, mechanical, and automotive parts. Eastbound shipments will be consolidated at Hamburg or Duisburg hubs operated by JAS Germany, and devanned at Zhengzhou, Wuhan or Chengdu hubs for further local trucking distribution. On the other hand, shipments going Westbound will be handled in JAS’s CFS service hubs in Wuhan or Hefei in China, and Hamburg or Warsaw in Europe. Rail freight service is a perfect solution if customers seek cost-effect transportation compared to air freight, and at the same time, with shorter transit time compared to ocean freight.
In addition, as JAS China is actively involved in logistics and freight forwarding services for Italian companies in China, Mario Tasso is pleased to be appointed as the coordinator of CICC’s Logistics Working Group in 2018.

For many importers who source from Asia, the Trans-Pacific FCL market remains unstable leading into peak season now that 7%-8% of capacity was recently removed due to the Hanjin bankruptcy situation. This has caused disruption in many supply chains and some have come to a screeching halt.
JAS has taken a proactive approach to mitigating this situation and addressing customer needs by establishing the first weekly LCL consolidation box from Qingdao to Memphis starting October 4th.
This is a very unique product offered in the marketplace and will address some of the current pain points in today’s market amongst importers throughout the region.
Northern China sourcing region is primarily concentrated on the industrial and manufacturing sector. The co-loaders charge a premium for dense cargo either by inflating their per ton charges to double the standard market price or by applying additional charges on the IPI portion of the move by utilizing a much more expensive w/m ratio.
After doing the analysis, JAS found that its customers will be able to average an immediate 50% cost savings vs. the co-load market since JAS is able to apply the standard w/m ratio all the way through to the JAS Forwarding bonded facility in Memphis.
The total transit time from Qingdao to Memphis is 25 days. From Memphis, JAS can deliver to any customer in 20+ different states in the US within 1-3 days from arrival.
JAS' customers will also continue to benefit from the safety and security of having the goods move through the JAS network in JAS operated facilities. If you are an importer who sources from any region in Northern China and would like to hear more, please reach out to the email@example.com or contact your local sales representative.
