JAS Colombia Opens New Office

August 20, 2019

JAS Colombia is proud to announce the opening of their newest branch office in Barranquilla, located in the North Zone of beautiful Colombia.

​Barranquilla is a city full of logistics history, being the first port to open in Colombia in 1936. The city also represents a strategic central axis in the growth process of the country due to its close proximity to the ports of Cartagena and Santa Marta, making Barranquilla the natural export hub in the Caribbean.

The port of Barranquilla stands out for its efficient port infrastructure due to the interconnection it presents with the main fluvial ports of the country. JAS Colombia looks forward to leveraging the benefits of such an infrastructure for our customers, giving them the advantages they need to succeed. At JAS people make the difference and JAS Colombia is ready to continue that tradition with their newest branch in Barranquilla.

Congratulations to JAS Colombia. We invite you to get to know more about JAS Colombia and see how they can help you!

JAS Introduces Blue World Atlantic

The current pandemic has caused shipping disruptions across the globe.  

With a 70% reduction in passenger flights since February 2020, the overall global air freight capacity is down about 25% from this time last year.  Limited space on limited flights means frequent delays and interruptions of supply chains globally.

With the unpredictable availability of cargo space, how do we regain control of air freight to ensure service in such a critical time?  

The traditional air freight model is no longer a realistic option, instead Flight Operations are the key for maintaining a reliable and uninterrupted supply chain by providing door-to-door control of the shipping process. With a Flight Operation, every step of the process - from the time the cargo is picked up to its final delivery - is meticulously managed by the service provider.  

Shipments are processed through facilities controlled by the service provider, both at origin and destination. This system avoids the typical congestion at airport hubs, reduces overall transit time, and increases control.

The aircraft themselves offer unmatched flexibility to meet all cargo needs. Freighters have the capability to move normal and specialized cargo such as dangerous goods, oversized pieces, and shipments requiring refrigeration such as perishable and pharma.  

Lastly, a prime network of delivery options carries the cargo to its ultimate destination.

In early August JAS introduced BLUE WORLD ATLANTIC, a weekend roundtrip Flight Operation between Chicago and Frankfurt, utilizing B 747 – 400 F Nose-Load for optimum loading capabilities. The BLUE WORLD ATLANTIC prime schedule is the best solution for supporting customers in the transatlantic air freight corridor!

If your business could benefit from a regular flight operation in the transatlantic corridor contact a local JAS representative for more information.
