NEWS FROM GREENCARRIER Freight Services

Green Solutions for Wine Logistics

July 8, 2022

As a part of the larger move towards more sustainable wine production, Greencarrier Freight Services offers short sea shipping services as an innovative transportation alternative to road freight.

Wine has been produced in the Iberian Peninsula for many centuries.

Throughout Portugal, there are fourteen Delimited Wine Regions. Due to unique geography of the area, a variety of quality wines suchas sparkling wines, white wines, red wines, rosé wines, and different kinds of vinegar can be found.

In 2015, Portugal’s Alentejo Region launched its award winning “Alentejo Wine Sustainability Program” (PSVA) in the region’s vineyards, in part, to promote more sustainable wine production environment.

As part of this move towards more sustainable wine production, Greencarrier Freight Services offers short sea shipping services as an innovative transportation alternative to road freight.

The service operates from Porto in Portugal to the Nordic region. Cargo for the Nordic market is consolidated from all over Spain and Portugal, where it is then shipped to Gothenburg for further distribution in the Nordics.

“This sustainable service option is a way for shippers to reduce direct emissions but also mitigate congested roads and shortage of drivers. It is our ambition to make it simple for our clients to switch to sustainable alternatives without having to recreate their entire supply chain, says Ari Malvela, Head of Road Freight.

Less than container load (LCL) allows you to ship smaller quantities more frequently. With weekly departures and fast transit times it is easier than ever to build supply chains that are both efficient and sustainable.

“Can we afford not to become more sustainable? This logistics solution is part of our initiative “Green Solutions” and reduces your environmental footprint up to 80% when compared to using road freight. One feeder vessel carries the equivalent of 500 truckloads, reducing the pressure on congested roads as well as the environment,” says Stefan Larsen, Ocean Freight Manager.

Green Solutions for Road Freight Transport

Flexibility + Sustainability = Forward-Thinking Transportation

July 7, 2022

The most rural areas in the world rely on road freight to transport goods from your warehouse to their doorstep. 

More than 3 billion people worldwide live in rural areas. Road freight is the only mode of transport that can reach the most remote places across the globe. You never have to compromise flexibility and sustainability when shipping large volumes of goods over long or short distance.  

Our road transport solutions serve Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. We leverage our extensive knowledge of the market and our independent positioning to create the perfect road freight solution.  

What is road freight?

Road freight involves transporting goods from one location to another. Moving products via road freight is one of the oldest and most common delivery modes. Sometimes road freight is used in conjunction with air or sea freight methods to provide greater flexibility with delivery times.  

There are two types of road freight:

  • Less Than Truckload (LTL) is common for smaller size cargo that can’t fill a truck on its own. LTL shipments can combine to fill a truckload and save you money.  
  • Full Truck Load (FTL) is used for shipments sizes large enough to fill an entire truck. FTL also can be used to move goods on a time-sensitive schedule even if the truck isn’t full.  

What are the advantages of transporting by road freight?

Range and flexibility are two of the biggest advantages of transporting by road freight. When flexibility is your top priority, road freight is the only transport mode capable of reaching into the most rural areas. Regardless of whether you have LTL or FTL needs, road freight is the most flexible way to handle schedules and volumes.  

Besides adaptability, the other benefits of choosing road freight shipping include:

  • Door-to-door service. It doesn’t matter where the delivery needs to go. Road freight is the most efficient way to move cargo door-to-door in any area, including the most rural locations.  
  • Maximum traceability. GPS and other fleet management software allows for the easy location and tracking of cargo along the route. The real-time information provided allows you to anticipate problems and quickly find solutions.  
  • Speed. Other means of transportation might be faster, but road freight is more agile, which can be important when moving fragile cargo to the most remote areas.  
  • Sustainability. Sophisticated and energy-efficient trucking solutions help you fulfill sustainability goals. You can rely on a fleet of eco-friendly trucks with high-technology advancements that meet EU standards for decreased emissions. A telematics system improves key areas like reduced idle time, driving within economy, cruise control, and engine load time.  

Road freight = the perfect green solution

Road freight can be made both cost-efficient and eco-friendly. Loading goods directly into vehicles and transporting them straight to their destination reduces the risk of delays along the transport chain. Eliminating the need to stop at distribution terminals along the way speeds up delivery while keeping your shipment as green as possible.  

If you’re looking for fast, reliable, and eco-friendly transportation method, reach out to your local sales representative to discuss solutions today.

Green Solutions : Short Sea Shipping

Sustainable short sea shipping is the way forward

May 18, 2022

Short sea shipping provides great environmental, social, and economic advantages and plays a key role in sustainable shipping.

Over time, the volume of goods being transported on European roads has steadily increased, leading to congested roads, delays, and unnecessary costs. As shippers look to avoid these issues, many are considering short sea shipping as a viable solution.

What is short sea shipping?

Short sea shipping is essentially container movement within Europe, but with a short time on the sea. Short sea shipping is an excellent alternative to road freight. However, it is not a matter of dismantling road transport. It is about environmentally smart alternatives that improve existing supply chains.

What are the advantages of short sea shipping?

  • Increased Reliability: One significant benefit of short sea shipping is that shippers receive goods in a reliable, consistent, and timely manner. Unlike road transport, which is prone to delays and irregular logistics flow due to congestion, short sea shipping allows for scheduled departures and arrivals.
  • A Sustainable Choice: Short sea shipping provides great environmental, social, and economic advantages and plays a vital role in sustainable shipping. Moving a significant volume of goods from road freight to short sea will positively impact road congestion, road safety, and noise levels. One feeder vessel carries the equivalent of 500 truckloads. Compared to using trucks only, this solution provides increased both in terms of cost and CO2 emissions.
  • Buy What You Need: The size of a container often determines the quantity purchased, but it is important to buy and transport only what is needed. A short sea solution enables shippers to avoid producing excess merchandise with no demand and risks being destroyed. Short sea shipping affords the opportunity to book smaller quantities resulting in fewer containers being utilized.
  • Cost-Efficient Alternative: Sea freight rates are considerably lower than road freight rates, especially when transporting larger freight volumes and heavier cargo. Transitioning from road freight to short sea allows shippers to circumvent the high freight rates associated with road transport. In the long term, moving large volumes to short sea and away from the roads of Europe would help restore the capacity imbalance in road freight and eventually remove lack-of-capacity surcharges.

Improved Cargo Flow By Outsourcing Logistics Activities

April 12, 2022

As a logistics service provider Greencarrier Freight Services is able to assist a company that was struggling with customs formalities for shipments from China to Latvia.

Cost savings is no longer the only top priority for companies looking for outsourcing partners. More so, they want a partner who can provide the expertise and knowledge not found in-house. Logistics is a core competency, and also the biggest reason companies choose to outsource their logistics activities: It allows them to focus on their core business. This is precisely what one of our customers did.

In need of a qualified and experienced customs broker

In 2007, an international company, best known for its leading technology in the power, renewable energy, aviation, and healthcare industries, reached out to us. The company was struggling with custom formalities for shipments from China to Latvia. They were in need of a qualified and experienced customs broker that could handle the complex procedures and formalities for their large goods volumes. Together with the company, we looked into the possibilities, and a collaboration was initiated that would turn into a long-lasting relationship.

Logistics as a core competency

In 2018, the company re-nominated us as their customs broker. This time, the scope was a bit wider. Our customer is a large international company with businesses all over the world and large goods volumes that need to be moved across borders. Instead of employing their own logistics experts, they wanted to outsource their customs brokerage to us. Logistics being our core competency, this was a perfect match.

Providing our expert knowledge in customs brokerage

Two of our logistics experts would dedicate their resources exclusively to our customer’s account and work in their name. Thanks to our previous collaboration, we already knew the ins and outs of the company and its import and export requirements. After closing the agreement, including strict disclosure requirements and confidentiality rules, our logistics experts were ready to get to work.

Greencarrier Freight Services took care of customs procedures and formalities, making sure the shipments met all standards and regulations for import and export as well as requirements for customs clearance. We handled all the necessary documentation, duties, taxes, and payments.

Managing the cargo flow from A to Z

In 2020, the company reached out to us once again. They had a similar project in one of the CIS countries and needed our help. However, this time, they wanted us to handle customs procedures and formalities and manage their entire cargo flow from A to Z. This included all transport modes and multiple trade lanes. It also required logistics experts that could speak English and Russian fluently working in international teams.

JAS Continues Ukraine Relief Effort

May 24, 2022

JAS continues Ukraine relief effort

In March, JAS Italy team members collected 12 tons of basic necessities along with monetary donations so products could be purchased in the areas of greatest need. At that time, it was clear that further support would be necessary with Biagio Bruni, founder and president of JAS stating, “It is the first expedition, but it will not be the last because the emergency is unfortunately destined to last; soon, we hope to be able to start a second trip.”

Therefore, JAS invited its employees to join the effort by collecting donations through the Bruni Foundation, which JAS Worldwide then matched.

With the funds raised, the Bruni foundation was able to send a second batch of humanitarian aid such as food, clothes, and medicine to Odessa to help address the most pressing needs of the people.

The generosity and support of the JAS community reflect the company's commitment to the greater community and the fact that at JAS, people really do make the difference.

Five Ways to Prepare for Tropical Storm Season

June 2, 2022

With the tropical storm season upon us, it is important to plan ahead for adverse weather events to minimize the potential disruptions to supply chains.

Supply chain management is a complicated process even under the best of conditions. When a tropical storm occurs, the process is made even more complex as the extreme weather can not only wreak havoc on homes and buildings; but, the subsequent high winds and flooding, can disrupt and delay freight transportation, potentially causing supply chain delays and failures. As tropical storm season begins, it is important to plan ahead for adverse weather events to minimize potential repercussions.

  1. Know How to Prioritize Your Freight: The severe weather associated with tropical storms can shut down ports and ground flights. When operations do begin, capacity may be reduced, and extensive backlogs are possible. By understanding which freight is most important to maintaining business continuity, you can help prevent further disruptions downstream.
  2. Plan for Inventory Disruptions: During the peak of tropical storm season, it can be wise to plan for additional inventory to be on hand in case your supply chain is disrupted due to significant port and airport closures and delays.  
  3. Keep an Eye on the Sky: Taking a proactive approach to monitoring the weather during tropical storm season is vital. It allows you to stay well-informed of impending severe weather that might impact shipment delivery. While the forecast may change at a moment’s notice, it is essential you are aware of the weather forecast and any precautionary measures taken locally, such as port and airport closures and shelter-in-place orders.
  4. Utilize Technology to Increase Supply Chain Visibility: In the event of severe weather, maintaining supply chain visibility and real-time access to information about paused and canceled shipments is vital. By maintaining supply chain visibility, you can more readily identify potential problems and areas of concern, allowing informed decisions on things such as expediting time-sensitive cargo to be made early on minimizing disruptions.
  5. Maintain a Line of Communication: When severe weather occurs, it is important to maintain a clear line of communication with your service providers. This means ensuring that your provider knows which cargo is of the highest priority and giving as much notice as possible about a needed shipment as canceled flights and closed ports can delay shipments and reduce capacity.

With the start of tropical storm season having arrived, it is important to be prepared for whatever disruptions severe weather might bring. Whether it is developing a contingency plan long before extreme weather conditions occur or rerouting cargo and utilizing air cargo options when severe weather occurs, JAS can help keep your supply chain running smoothly. To make sure you are ready for tropical storm season, contact your local JAS office.

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 ❤

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 ❤
