In the Netherlands, we operate from two main offices, one in Amsterdam and one in Rotterdam; moving cargo around the globe, beyond skies and oceans.
We opened our first office in Amsterdam in 1998, a stone’s throw distance from Schiphol Airport, one of the largest cargo airports in the world - allowing us to move your products with the shortest lead-times possible.
Just a few years later we opened our second branch in Rotterdam with a primary focus on ocean freight. Moving products from and to the Netherlands with utmost precision and care to make sure your products arrive safely and on time, taking advantage of our extended global network.
In addition to our freight forwarding services, we take pride in providing some of the best warehousing and logistical services in the market. Utilizing our globally integrated Warehouse Management System, providing you with the visibility you need throughout the whole supply chain. This is supported by a logistics team that has extensive experience in cross docking, pick and pack operations, reverse logistics, and e-commerce solutions.
The mix between young and experienced team members who work at JAS Netherlands makes our company special. We teach and learn from everyone, this results in a manner where we find solutions for all your logistical challenges and come up with the best ways to connect your cargo with the world.
Since the beginning of the first Covid-19 wave, freight forwarders in the Netherlands faced issues with finding space within limited flights capacities from and to Amsterdam. JAS Amsterdam dedicated themselves to be flexible and creative to find the best solutions for their clients. Utilizing our extended JAS network and with the help of other offices in Europe like JAS Frankfurt, have arranged a weekly charter to provide our clients with the service they required throughout these difficult times.
One of our clients, Aviagen Limited, for whom JAS AMS builds specialty aircraft pallets containing day-old chicks, had a peak in shipments during the first half of the year. During that period, JAS Amsterdam handled more than 10,000 boxes and over 700,000-day-old chicks. All served with options through the BENELUX region.
This peak was almost parallel with the peak of Covid-19. The JAS Amsterdam team faced two major challenges. First, to find the required space, and second, to travel within the region while the travel restrictions were the strictest. Negotiations were taking place on a continuous basis with all airlines that are able to handle life animals such as day-old chicks.
In the middle of the restrictions in March, JAS had our first shipment for this peak from Belgium, Liege airport. JAS AMS went with a team to build up the ULD’s with one purpose, to deliver this shipment safely, and in time.
A couple of days later, the JAS team had to head to the south of the Netherlands for a full charter flight from Maastricht (MST), The Netherlands to Abidjan (ABJ), Côte d’Ivoire. This flight contained 7 ULD positions that were built into a Boeing 737F. 749 boxes and over 50.000 chicks. Which was again, safely delivered to the client.
This marked the beginning of a successful period, in which the JAS team made the impossible possible, and went above and beyond to fulfil our responsibility to our client. Today we continue these efforts through a wave of the avian influenza affecting the region and through the second wave of the pandemic. Nevertheless, we will continue providing the support and dedication our clients require. At JAS, people make the difference!
