Planning ahead for the upcoming holidays in Brazil and China is key to maintaining operational efficiency.
JAS Customer Advisory: Planning Ahead for Chinese New Year and Carnival 2024

As we enter 2024, businesses must be aware of two upcoming holidays that may impact operations. Two major events, Chinese New Year and Carnival, are set to coincide, affecting supply chains across the globe. 

Chinese New Year, a traditional Chinese holiday marking the start of a new year in the Chinese Lunar Calendar, begins on February 10 and is observed across many Asian countries. During this week 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. However, factory slowdowns are expected to being in early to mid-January with normal operations resuming at the end of February. 

Simultaneously, the Carnival festival will be in full swing, particularly in Brazil, where festivities will take place from February 9 to 17. Like with Chinese New year, the consequences of the celebrations can be felt throughout supply chains both in Brazil and abroad as many manufacturers and suppliers will reduce hours or cease activities as employees take time off to celebrate.  

With two large economies, observing major holidays concurrently, it is key that businesses plan and prepare accordingly as the overlap of these festivities is expected to impact global supply chains.  

To effectively mitigate the impact of these celebrations on your supply chain, we recommend the following proactive measures: 

  • Plan Early: Anticipate increased demand for logistics services and plan shipments well in advance to mitigate potential delays. To avoid unnecessary disruptions and price increases, it is recommended to place bookings well in advance—ideally four to six weeks before the holidays. 
  • Diversify Routes and Shipping Methods: Explore alternative shipping routes to avoid congestion and potential disruptions in traditional routes. In addition, consider using multiple forms of transportation in case one method experiences disruption during this time. 
  • Adjust Schedules: Be flexible with production and delivery schedules to accommodate the temporary slowdown in operations during the holidays. 
  • Stay Informed: Regularly monitor updates and advisories from relevant authorities and industry sources to stay informed about any changes or developments that may impact operations. 

The simultaneous occurrence of Chinese New Year and Carnival this year underscores the importance of proactive measures and a well-coordinated approach. By integrating these insights into your planning strategy, businesses can ensure a smoother transition through this period and maintain operational efficiency.

JAS UK Expands Pharma and Healthcare Division with WDA(H) Licence

JAS UK proudly announces that it has been granted its Wholesale Distribution Authorisation (WDA(H)) license from the UK's Medicine and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) for its Pharma and Healthcare Division.

JAS UK's Pharma and Healthcare division prides itself of offering innovative solutions for the international delivery of pharmaceutical products, further enhancing the growth of our pre-established healthcare division."

Setting Sail Towards Sustainability: The Impact of California's Vessel Speed Reduction Program on Blue Whales and Beyond

Protecting Blue Whales and Blue Skies is a voluntary Vessel Speed Reduction (VSR) Program along the coast of California which incentivizes companies to incorporate sustainable shipping practices across their global supply chain. By creating seasonal and predictable slow speed zones, this program helps companies protect endangered whales, reduce fuel use and regional greenhouse gas emissions, and improve air quality and human health outcomes.

The program runs each year from mid-May to December to coincide with peak ozone and whale feeding and migration. The program covers two geographic regions, one along the Southern California coast and one outside the San Francisco Bay Area.

Since 2014, the program has achieved an estimated 44% decrease in the risk of whale strikes. 

As an ambassador, JAS engages with its shipping partners operating in the area, recognizes the shared vision and commitment with those already involved in vessel speed reduction, and further encourages other ocean carriers to participate in the program. 

“What makes the BWBS initiative stand out is that it not only addresses carbon emissions, but also safeguards biodiversity. By voluntarily reducing vessel speed (VSR) along the California coast, ocean carriers commit to protecting blue whales and raising industry awareness. JAS supports this initiative and will further engage its logistics partners on the key role whales play in the environment and our responsibility to improve the ocean ecosystem.” -Andrea Goeman, SVP QHSE & Sustainability, JAS Worldwide
“Being an ambassador for the BWBS Program is a great initiative towards more sustainable ocean freight solutions. It is a way to further engage with our carriers, with whom we share values towards a sustainable transformation, and an example of how collaboration can be beneficial for the logistics ecosystem, our customers, and the environment.” -Lars Huebecker, EVP Global Head of Ocean Freight

UPDATED Customer Advisory: Red Sea Attacks and Suez Canal Bypass

Completing nine weeks of the Red Sea crisis, a tentative new normal emerges. While the timeline for re-routing through the region remains unclear, ocean carriers have largely adapted their schedules and ports of call, suggesting fewer operational disruptions on both primary and backhaul routes going forward. However, experts urge caution, emphasizing the inherent volatility of the situation and the potential for future flare-ups. 

Industry Insights, Facts & Market Developments 

Below are some additional key facts and market developments surrounding the situation.  

  • Leading analysts predict a prolonged Red Sea closure, which could last through 2024. Shippers should remain vigilant for further supply/demand disruptions. The only remaining carriers who traverse the Red Sea are smaller Asian carriers. 
  • The Houthi claim to be attacking only US, UK, and Israeli ships, but experts state this is rather subjective, and all ships are at risk in the Red Sea. 
  • US CENTCOM successfully intercepted missiles launched by Houthis in the past week, as well as launching several counterattacks.  
  • All major carriers continue to go around the Cape with extended Transit time and higher costs to follow. The supply chain has started to adjust to the new reality.  
  • More information has come out on EU Operation Aspides, which is set to last for one year, be purely defensive in nature with no attacks on Yemeni soil, and based on Greece.  
  • Hapag Lloyd is reducing their Operational Recovery Surcharge from US East and Gulf Coast to Asia effective February 16th, today, which was initially implemented February 5th only. While back haul related, a sign of relief. 
  • Drewry’s WCI, released yesterday, indicated that from Asia to Europe and the Mediterranean, it continued to decline, but the pace of decline slowed compared to the past week.  
  • Backhaul rates from Europe and the Mediterranean to Asia seem to be catching up, reacting to the crisis. Xeneta reported a 68% rise in North Europe to Asia and a 45% increase in Mediterranean rates since December 31st, 2023.  

Our Commitment 

JAS Worldwide will continue to monitor the situation and keep you duly updated. Our public website update will occur once per week, every Friday.

JAS Colombia and the Bruni Foundation worked with local NGO El Banquete del Bronx to help support the Emberá community.
Caring Connections: JAS Colombia's Support for Indigenous Communities

The Emberá people are an indigenous community primarily residing in Colombia, with approximately 50,000 individuals identifying as part of this group. Due to factors such as armed conflict and mining exploitation in their ancestral territories, many Emberá have been forced to leave and migrate to major cities like Bogotá. Despite some support in the capital city of the country, the Emberá community faces discrimination, and efforts to provide basic necessities such as clean water and food are insufficient.


Women and children in the Emberá community are particularly affected by these challenges. Forced to leave their lands, they grapple with societal indifference, language barriers (as Spanish is not their native language), and the struggle to preserve their cultural identity.


Recognizing the need to support local communities, JAS Colombia collaborated with 'El Banquete del Bronx', a local NGO, to visit one of the Emberá settlements in Bogotá. The activity included providing food, hygiene kits and, above all, sharing moments of joy with the little ones by drawing and playing games. This initiative is part of the Bruni Foundation's 'Pay it Forward' program, which empowers JAS employees to become ambassadors of change by actively supporting social and environmental causes.


The event began with a presentation by the local NGO to JAS employees, aiming to raise awareness about the situation of the Emberá and other minority groups – and the reasons behind their migration to urban areas. The presentation underscored the role of every citizen in bringing some hope, aiding their adaptation process, and, more broadly, fostering respect for ethnic communities.


Addressing some of the challenges women and children face within the Emberá community is only one of the initiatives toward a more inclusive and sustainable future that the Bruni Foundation is committed to. Throughout the year, the Bruni Foundation will support various global projects, primarily focusing on these United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): Quality Education, No Poverty, Clean Water and Sanitation, and Zero Hunger.
