JAS China, headquartered in Hong Kong, has been serving customers for more than 40 years. It quickly became the leader of Italy Far East trade in air and ocean freight forwarding. The business scope was soon expanded to China with its first office setup in Shanghai. Today, it has strategic presence in major cities across China.
The JAS China team handles the ever-increasing logistics needs in all industries. The organization has over 600+ specialized staff and offers consolidation and logistics warehousing services in dozens of locations throughout the area.
What is Chinese New Year?
During the week of Chinese New Year, factories and businesses will close as the public holiday brings a week off for employees to travel to celebrate the start of a new year with their families. Each year, the consequences of these shutdowns are felt throughout global supply chains.
How will it impact supply chains?
While the holiday officially begins January 21, in the days and weeks preceding the official week of the holiday, production at manufacturing facilities across the area will start to slow as employees take time off. This year it is estimated that approximately 80% of factories will gradually close the week preceding the legal holiday. When production begins to pick back up, factories typically prioritize orders from regular clientele.
The holiday's impact on supply chains extends beyond just manufacturing and production processes. As shippers plan for the changes in factory production, the amount of cargo being shipped will increase in order for business to have ample stock on hand throughout the disruption. Due to this increase in cargo volumes, shippers can anticipate temporary rate increases beginning as early as mid-December. These increases will affect both ocean and air freight.
Shippers should also be aware of potential slowdowns in the border-clearing process. With truckers taking time off and demand increasing in the weeks leading up to the holiday, rate increases and further capacity constraints can be anticipated.
What can I do to minimize the impact of Chinese New Year on my supply chain?
To avoid unnecessary supply chain disruptions and price increases it is recommended to place bookings well in advance. At least four to six weeks before Chinese New Year is ideal.

In honor of World Water Day, JAS Worldwide (JAS) and the Bruni Foundation today announced their partnership with charity: water to provide clean and safe water to those in need.
The theme of World Water Day 2023 is "Water for Life and Livelihoods," which helps highlight the importance of water for life, economic development, and the environment. The United Nations (UN) reports that 771 million people worldwide live without access to clean water, which is essential for the health and well-being of individuals and communities.
JAS, the Bruni Foundation, and charity: water are committed to making a difference in the lives of those affected by the global water crisis. The first phase of the partnership will deploy a $100,200 gift from the Bruni Foundation, which will fully fund two clean and safe water projects in India and Mozambique.
In Mozambique, this partnership will fund new community wells and handpumps across provinces in the Northeast of Mozambique and provide access to clean and safe water for more than 800 people. In India, the funds will support rainwater harvesting in the Thar Desert of Rajasthan, Western India, helping to provide clean and safe water access to over 250 people.
These initiatives will make a tangible impact in the lives of those in the local communities where the projects are being funded and are just the first step in the commitment to the cause.
Seaports are critical components of the global transport system. JAS is present with our own port terminals at every port in Norway as well as via our partners in countries around the globe. This provides a global network of opportunities for our customers with the ability to meet all types of international inquiries. With convenient port locations, it is only a short distance from ships to land-based logistics functions.
We have a close relationship with large industrial suppliers and ship owners and operate as agents for the largest feeder companies. We offer loading and discharging of bulk loads, tankers, and container vessels, and quayside storage provides direct access to container ships and marine vessels. This is available from both our own and our clients’ quays. In addition, our experienced team members can provide all services related to the stuffing, stripping, securing, and packaging of goods in containers.
All Norway ports have container depots and dedicated staff with broad experience in terminal operations. Our teams of qualified service engineers oversee the maintenance and repair of all containers, ensuring they are ready to be loaded and shipped. We provide daily stock- and movement-reports, and always have the right equipment available at the right time.
We offer a cross-docking solution that keeps your goods moving. The storage time is significantly reduced, or eliminated, as the goods are distributed directly to the customer. The goods are received through an inbound dock, separated, mixed as required, and directly transferred to the outbound dock. This is a convenient solution for temperature-controlled goods that must be transported quickly or already packaged and sorted goods.
One of the most important things in port logistics is personal service. We put the customers first, solving their problems by providing customized solutions and around-the-clock customer service with flexible and reliable processes. No matter the size of your shipment or the needs you may have, we are your complete port logistics provider.
At JAS China, we treat our customers as our business partners. The needs and business ambitions of our customers are all we focus on, and we help their business grow and identify potential opportunities by delivering supply chain solutions, both globally and locally.
