Frankfurt Pharma & Healthcare warehouse facility

JAS Worldwide Enhances its Pharma & Healthcare Logistics Services in Germany

JAS Worldwide, a global logistics provider headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, has signed an exclusive, long-term agreement with Swissport Cargo Services, a leading provider of air cargo handling and airport ground services. Effective 01 January 2022, Swissport will handle JAS Pharma and Healthcare freight in its multi-purpose warehouse in Cargo City South at Frankfurt am Main airport, Germany.

“Our Pharma and Healthcare customers will have access to more than 1000 square meters (10,765 square feet) of IATA CEIV certified temperature-controlled space in one of the newest and most sustainable buildings constructed” says Volker Werner, Managing Director of JAS Germany. Dedicated dock doors lead directly into temperature-controlled areas with build-up capabilities for various temperature-controlled packaging types and value-added service options, so JAS customers can enjoy precise and predictable temperature control, quality handling and cost efficiencies.

In addition, the facility will be seamlessly integrated with the JAS dedicated freighter network Blue World Atlantic, pairing secured capacity with end-to-end cold chain handling.

Lukas Bogie, Pharma & Healthcare Management JAS Germany states, “Through this exclusive partnership with Swissport, we are very proud to provide our Pharma & Healthcare customers with innovative cold chain solutions here in Frankfurt. With 24/7/365 operations in the heart of Germany’s cargo operations, our customers will benefit from several advantages all resulting in expedited and robust cold chain handling for temperature sensitive goods.”

Segregated from JAS activities in the warehouse, Swissport’s current ground handling business will continue without interruption.

With a growing network of 27 GDP certified branches across the globe, JAS has made significant investments in people, digital technology, and infrastructure in support of its strategy to provide the best quality logistics services for customers of the Pharma and Healthcare industry.

High Demand, Low Availability Challenges Linger in 2022

As 2022 begins, the global maritime market is continuing to experience high levels of demand while facing a reduced availability of space onboard ships, severe port congestion, and a shortage of empty containers. Today’s challenging shipping environment means that customers are turning to LCL services more than ever before to keep goods in their supply chains moving. 

These challenges are nothing new to the global maritime market, which has been struggling with supply chain disruptions since the pandemic began. JAS is uniquely positioned to handle these and other ongoing marketplace stressors. Our Less-Than-Container-Load (LCL) services are designed to fill the need and keep goods in the supply chain moving.  

Due to high customer demand and the current logistics environment, JAS is pleased to announce the launch of its new LCL strategic HUB connecting the LCL Asia Pacific cargos via Busan to the Latin American West Coast. The Busan HUB officially was announced on Dec. 20, 2021, with the first LCL console box to Manzanillo-Mexico. Thanks to high customer demand and the cost-savings benefits of implementing this LCL service, the team has begun the process of establishing a second weekly sailing from Busan to Manzanillo. Next steps include connecting Asia Pacific cargos via Busan to other Latin American countries, including Chile, Columbia, Panama, and Peru.  

Advantages JAS’ LCL Import Services via Busan include:

  • Cargo availability at our own JAS container freight station (CFS).
  • In-house custom experts at origin and destination.
  • Dedicated customer service with LCL expertise.
  • Visibility into every step of product flow with JASTrack.  
  • Exposure/risk reduction.  
  • Door-to-door solutions available.  
  • Weekly departures.
  • JAS controlled from end-to-end.
  • Easy In & Out connection. Cargoes are de-consolidated and consolidated in the same CFS managed by JAS.
  • Busan port is the last port connection from Asia to Latin America West Coast with the shortest transit time.
  • Reduction of CO2. JAS converts light 20-foot containers into LCL service using our strategic console product with containers of 40 feet well utilized.
