WHO WE ARE

JAS Italy

JAS Italy, a leader in the international transport market, was founded in 1978. After just 10 years, it topped the IATA rankings and now has extensive experience in the sector thanks to a staff of knowledgeable professionals who can organize and cover with efficiency, the entire logistics chain.

Originally founded as a provider of air shipments, the company later successively developed a maritime service, acquiring an important role in this field. We enrich the range of services offered to customers.  JAS has developed its expertise in some of the leading vertical global markets such as oil & energy, project business, government GLS logistics services, food and beverage, and fashion.

At JAS Italy, we are part of an international network of air and sea transport import-export, allowing us to operate on a global scale. We assure the utmost reliability and speed, managing to satisfy any request with care and precision. We efficiently manage transport from door-to-door, intercontinental level, as well as provide shipment data in real time.

Using JASTrack to track/trace shipments, JAS Italy supplies reliable supply chain management to our customers. We offer the ability to continuously monitor the status of your shipments along their route.

JAS Italy has 21 offices throughout the country with a qualified staff that consists of 500 employees. In the light of our extensive experience gained over the years, JAS Italy provides high-caliber performance, offering a service that is fast, secure, timely and of the highest standard.

We like to call ourselves a "GLOCAL" company. This word embodies the terms local and global, which best sums up our philosophy: an international mindset embodied in a local context.

We are therefore proud to say that "passion and knowledge are the keys to success to assure our clients competitive solutions for all areas of the world." The ability to adapt our know-how to every single requirement is a rewarding practice.

JAS Italy is registered in the special register of official agents ENAC reference 1/J of 17/11/03. Mandatory x-ray controls are carried out at branches of JAS di Segrate (Milan), Florence, Turin, and Rome to name a few, where x-ray technologies are installed to comply with the regulatory schema of the European Community.

"ISO 9001:2015 (Quality), ISO 14001:2015 (Environment) and ISO 45001:2018 (Health & Security) certification confirms the efficiency JAS Italy has achieved, due in no small part to the professionalism of our team - which is constantly trained and ready to meet all your needs with the utmost reliability, timeliness, and transparency.

We have been granted the status of authorized economic operator (AEO), reference EN AEOF 09 0049 from 25/02/09, both for air-sea export-import, customs procedures, and safety.

UPDATED Customer Advisory: Red Sea Attacks and Suez Canal Bypass

Current Situation  

Two and a half months into the crisis, the immediate risk situation in the Red Sea has not improved, and multiple new attacks with high frequency have been witnessed in the region this past week. The long-term impact on container shipping remains uncertain. Continued geopolitical tensions, logistical challenges, and potential for disruptions contribute to an environment of volatility. Shippers and industry stakeholders are advised to remain informed and adjust their strategies accordingly. 

Industry Insights, Facts & Market Developments 

Below are some additional key facts and market developments surrounding the situation, including a timeline of major events.  

  • Drewry’s WCI composite index, indicates a further 2% decline compared to last week. It is important to note that although the Index has decreased, it is still significantly higher than pre-pandemic levels and the 10-year average.  
  • Spot rates from the US East Coast to Asia begin to rise, mirroring the earlier increases observed on European and Mediterranean routes reported last week.  
  • Both MSC and Maersk announced additional vessels to be deployed on their Transpacific service due to the extended Cape of Good Hope route. 
  • Hapag Lloyd reported two days ago that the Red Sea and Suez Canal routes continue to be avoided. A shuttle service connecting Red Sea cargo via Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, to Europe, North America, and Latin America has been implemented.  
  • CMA-CGM had one 16,000 TEU vessel complete its southbound transit two days ago with others clearly intending to plan to transit in the coming week. The same information seems to be reflected in the carriers’ official schedules.  
  • Industry experts again urge shippers to review their insurance coverage for transit, cargo loss and General Average.  
  • US CENTCOM successfully continued to conduct strikes against missile launchers on land, preventing use this past week. Counter activities included intercepting a drone submarine launched by the Houthis. 

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.

Blue Whale with Cargo Ship in the Background
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.

A Word from the CEO, JAS Italy

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 ❤

Leonardo Baldi

Managing Director, JAS Italy


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 ❤
