JAS Panama Gives Back to the Community

November 14, 2019

JAS takes pride in contributing to the communities we live in and share with our customers and neighbors. It is an important part of JAS' Social Responsibility to dedicate time each year to give back to those in need. JAS Panama prides itself rising to the occasion and making an impact in their community and is committed to giving back to the neighborhood that they are a part of and do so annually. This year as a way to give back to those in need JAS Panama joined together to give to children undergoing treatments at the local hospital.

On October 24th, the JAS Panama team joined together to be God-Parents of the week and bring gifts and other donations to children in the hospital during the Week of Prevention against Burns. Preparations for this event went on for over a month prior to the 24th, and it was a privilege to contribute to the happiness and well being of the beautiful children and amazing staff of this hospital. JAS knows that if we all work together, we can make the world a better place.

JAS is proud to be a part of such a wonderful effot and we look forward to continuing to do our part with the communities and people we live and work with! JAS Panama thanks all of the sponsors who never hesitate to support the great work JAS is doing in the community and a special thanks to the collaborators who worked with the hospital to make this possible, especially Licda, Arcadia Quintero, and Nurse Belgica Chiru.

At JAS, people make the difference, and that is what makes JAS different.

JAS Introduces Blue World Atlantic

The current pandemic has caused shipping disruptions across the globe.  

With a 70% reduction in passenger flights since February 2020, the overall global air freight capacity is down about 25% from this time last year.  Limited space on limited flights means frequent delays and interruptions of supply chains globally.

With the unpredictable availability of cargo space, how do we regain control of air freight to ensure service in such a critical time?  

The traditional air freight model is no longer a realistic option, instead Flight Operations are the key for maintaining a reliable and uninterrupted supply chain by providing door-to-door control of the shipping process. With a Flight Operation, every step of the process - from the time the cargo is picked up to its final delivery - is meticulously managed by the service provider.  

Shipments are processed through facilities controlled by the service provider, both at origin and destination. This system avoids the typical congestion at airport hubs, reduces overall transit time, and increases control.

The aircraft themselves offer unmatched flexibility to meet all cargo needs. Freighters have the capability to move normal and specialized cargo such as dangerous goods, oversized pieces, and shipments requiring refrigeration such as perishable and pharma.  

Lastly, a prime network of delivery options carries the cargo to its ultimate destination.

In early August JAS introduced BLUE WORLD ATLANTIC, a weekend roundtrip Flight Operation between Chicago and Frankfurt, utilizing B 747 – 400 F Nose-Load for optimum loading capabilities. The BLUE WORLD ATLANTIC prime schedule is the best solution for supporting customers in the transatlantic air freight corridor!

If your business could benefit from a regular flight operation in the transatlantic corridor contact a local JAS representative for more information.

JAS-SONAVE RECOGNIZED BY FCA

[BETIM, BRAZIL, Sept. 29, 2020] JAS has announced that its Brazilian partner, JAS-SONAVE, has been given the top award for Supply Chain Management, IRF by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA). The award was presented during the Annual Suppliers Conference and 2020 Suppliers Awards Ceremony, held at its facility in Betim, Minas Gerais, Brazil.

The annual event is hosted by FCA to award the Best Suppliers of the Latin America Division. The event considered the partners of the year 2019/2020. More than 100 companies competed in the category: SCM IRF (Supply Chain Management Inter-Regional Flow). Of those, JAS-SONAVE rose to the top spot.

JAS-SONAVE has been closely collaborating with JAS Worldwide since 2010 as the two companies have worked together to accomplish FCA needs. This strong relationship made it possible to bring cost reductions and logistic solutions to FCA.

The factors that led JAS-SONAVE to receive this award were several. According to FCA, JAS-SONAVE was responsible in 2019/2020 for the implementation of an innovative global import data management platform, which contributed to the improvement of logistic processes, identification of opportunities to reduce commercial and operational costs, and sharing of best practices for the assessment of sea and air flows. It was essential for an improvement in risk management, anticipating problems, and proposing robust action plans to avoid major impacts to the FCA group.

JAS-SONAVE CEO - Leonard D.M. Abreu, accepted the award at the event. Said Abreu, “I would like to thank the entire JAS-SONAVE team. Their dedication and sense of responsibility, combined with expert knowledge, offered the FCA Group cost reductions and added supply chain efficiencies. FCA, thank you for recognizing JAS-SONAVE as one of your best logistics partners. Count on us to continue improving our processes to bring innovation to future challenges.”
