The rapidly evolving pandemic, combined with the continued poor performance of carriers aggravated by growing demand for goods, has highlighted how fragile supply chains are due to globalization and delocalization. In fact, it has brought to the fore the phenomena of Reshoring/Nearshoring. This has accelerated the development of E-Commerce in Italy and has increased the importance of the "Made in Italy" brand and the positioning of Italy within the global supply chain.

JAS is always looking ahead to prepare for market changes and ways to serve our customers better. As a part of these efforts, JAS recently completed the acquisition of Tigers. With its long-standing expertise in both the Contract Logistics and E-Commerce sectors combined with its sophisticated IT systems, JAS will be able to provide logistical support and communicate digitally with our customers. In addition, these new systems will allow JAS to collaborate with customers to coordinate transit times and transport modes which will help customers' reduce CO2 emissions and the overall environmental impact.
With this objective, JAS has increased its usage of FCL rail service between China and Italy, transporting individual units or organizing block trains reserved entirely for JAS. Eco-sustainable, with low environmental impact, the service offers a competitive transit time when compared with current maritime services. Furthermore, as a part of the efforts to help customers reduce their CO2 emissions, JAS has increased the use of FCL rail services on the CHINA-ITALY section, transporting individual units or coordinating block trains entirely reserved for JAS. Eco-sustainable, with low environmental impact, the service currently offers a competitive transit time compared to current maritime services.
In further news, to better serve our customer's needs in this rapidly changing environment, on July 14, 2021, JAS Italy completed the acquisition of the company Bossi & C. Transiti S.p.A.. Specializing in the maritime field and headquartered in Genoa, branches will operate out of Verona and Vercelli while maintaining a commercial/operational office in Hong Kong.

L’esplosione della pandemia e il perdurare delle scarse performance dei
vettori aggravate da continui rincari, ha evidenziato quanto può essere fragile la globalizzazione e la rincorsa alla delocalizzazione della Supply Chain.
Infatti questa situazione ha riportato alla ribalta i fenomeni del Reshoring/Near-Shoring, accelerando anche in Italia lo sviluppo
dell’E-Commerce, ma anche aumentando l’importanza del prodotto e del
Brand «Made in Italy», posizionando l’Italia «nelle catene globali del valore». (Fonte : report di Alsea in collaborazione con Osservatorio Export Digitale del Politecnico di Milano).
Sempre con spirito lungimirante e cercando d’interpretare in anticipo le necessità dettate dai cambiamenti del mercato, JAS ha risposto con la recente acquisizione di TIGERS, mirando ad una espansione nei settori del Contract Logistics e dell’ E-Commerce, grazie ai quali sarà in grado di fornire supporto logistico, coadiuvato da sofisticati sistemi informatici per comunicare digitalmente con tutti i clienti che collaborano con JAS e armonizzando i tempi di transito con una ridotta immissione di CO2, selezionando modalità di trasporto a ridotto impatto ambientale.
Con tale obiettivo, JAS ha sviluppato ed incrementato sulla tratta CINA-ITALIA l’utilizzo dell’efficace servizio su ferro ed utilizzando le polizze Blue World Line, garantiamo servizi Groupage e servizi FCL con elevati standard di servizio. Ecosostenibile, con bassissimo impatto ambientale, il servizio offre ad oggi un Transit Time molto competitivo rispetto gli attuali servizi marittimi.
In data 14 luglio 2021, JAS Italia ha completato l’acquisizione della società Bossi & C. Transiti S.p.A. specializzata nel campo marittimo, con sede a Genova e filiali a Verona, Vercelli, oltre che un ufficio commerciale/operativo ad Hong Kong.

On September 08th, 2020 JAS Italia turned 42 years old, a year that will be remembered in history for the COVID-19 pandemic, the numerous human losses in the world, and the serious economic consequences caused to all world economies.
This year JAS Italia has proved once again that it can react as a great team in the face of adversity, establishing itself as the leading transport dispatcher of DPI (individual protection devices), respirators, medical-hospital equipment for Civil Protection, hospitals, Italian regions, and private companies.
JAS Italia has been active from March until the beginning of August with weekly charter flights from China in order to meet the strong demand for the supply of masks and other security devices. Two HUBS have been created, JAS Rome and JAS Milan providing also 7/7 days H24 road delivery services. It was not only a matter of "business" but also of "civic sense and responsibility" at the service of our great country.
The bad experience of the COVID-19 has paradoxically also shown positive aspects, such as the ability to react and to work as a team, the innate qualities of the Italian people to use, for the first time in 42 years, the remote work guaranteeing the quality of service required by our customers, to find alternative solutions to the market standard ones, to reflect more on the next steps that we will have to take for a greater digitization and technological investments. Of course, all this concerns us, but our government will have to modernize our country with investments on broadband, infrastructural computer network and other.
Never before has our slogan, "People Make The Difference" matched the current spirit that will project us toward new challenges.
FORZA JAS ITALIA ❤

L’8 settembre 2020 JAS Italia compirà 42 anni, un anno questo che verrà ricordato nella storia per la pandemia COVID-19, per le numerose perdite umane nel mondo e per le gravi conseguenze economiche causate a tutte le economie mondiali.
Quest’anno JAS Italia ha dimostrato ancora una volta di sapere reagire da grande squadra di fronte alle avversità, affermandosi quale spedizioniere leader per i trasporti di DPI (dispositivi di protezione individuale), respiratori, attrezzature medico-ospedaliere destinate alla Protezione Civile, agli ospedali, alle regioni italiane ed a società private.
JAS Italia si è attivata da marzo fino ai primi di agosto con voli charter settimanali dalla Cina per poter far fronte alle forti esigenze di forniture delle mascherine e di altri dispositivi di sicurezza. Sono stati creati due HUBS, JAS Roma e JAS Milano fornendo anche servizi di consegne via strada 7/7 H24. Non si è trattato solo di “business” ma anche di “senso civico e di responsabilità” al servizio del nostro grande Paese.
La brutta esperienza del COVID-19 ha paradossalmente palesato anche degli aspetti positivi, quali la capacità di reagire e di fare squadra, doti innate in noi italiani, di avvalersi per la prima volta in 42 anni del lavoro da remoto garantendo comunque la qualità di servizio richiesta dalla nostra clientela, di trovare soluzioni alternative a quelle standard di mercato, di riflettere maggiormente sui prossimi passi che dovremo compiere per una maggiore digitalizzazione ed investimenti tecnologici societari. Ovviamente tutto ciò ci riguarda, mentre al nostro Governo toccherà invece modernizzare il Paese con investimenti sulla banda larga, rete informatica infrastrutturale ed altro.
Mai come ora, il nostro slogan “People make the difference” corrisponde allo spirito attuale che ci proietterà verso nuove sfide.
FORZA JAS ITALIA ❤
