JAS Qatar began full time operations in August of 2021. The facility in Umm Alhoul Free Zone is adjacent to MARSA port which is a new maritime cluster. MARSA, which has an 8.5 meter deep draught with 2 kilometers of quay wall, serves as a base for companies from around the world to conduct activities as diverse as ocean vessel building and repair, internal design and fit-out, ship provisions supply, safety training, boat brokerage and maritime research.
The opening of this new JAS entity allows the company to further expand its network in the Middle East region and execute on our strategy while pursuing Energy Solutions opportunities with an experienced and dedicated local team to support our valued customers and the JAS global network. Notably, aerospace and marine verticals will also feature strongly in the new country strategy.
JAS Worldwide is pleased to announce that Tigers is now operating under the JAS Worldwide name and brand.
The rebranding follows the acquisition of Tigers by JAS Worldwide in May 2021, which broadened its range of logistics services by adding omnichannel supply chain management capabilities, supported by advanced digital solutions, which help customers ramp up their B2B and B2C fulfillment operations.
Over the past 18 months, clients have experienced the benefits of JAS' vast global network and extensive knowledge of specialized industries, combined with Tigers' expertise in contract logistics and advanced digital solutions. This has allowed JAS to provide its customers with an even greater range of solutions to meet the customers’ supply chain and shipping needs.
JAS will continue to build a responsive and innovative company that offers customers higher levels of service, broader solutions, and a strong global network. JAS remains committed to investing in new technologies and infrastructure, including new superhubs being established worldwide.
Over the last four decades, JAS has experienced exponential growth based on the energy and vision of its founder Mr. Biagio Bruni. JAS prides itself on delivering the comprehensive services of a global provider while simultaneously maintaining a personal relationship with each of its customers. Today, the company still embraces its regional roots but has expanded its footprint across the world. It now serves customers in every region, industry, and vertical, with clients having access to best-in-class service and tailor-made solutions that meet the needs of today's complex market.
"As we move forward, we are excited about the opportunities presented to customers and employees alike. As the need for contract logistics continues to grow, these capabilities, combined with our global footprint, will allow JAS to meet the needs of today's market while maintaining a focus on strong customer relationships," commented Marco Rebuffi, CEO of JAS Worldwide.
“This represents the final step in the successful integration of Tigers into the JAS organization. We are thrilled by opportunities that have emerged when joining forces and can be seen in the launch of our initial phase of new JAS Contract Logistics superhubs in the USA, Australia, and China, as well as the deployment of new technology and automation, underlining the commitment of the JAS group to this new line of business,” JAS Contract Logistics co-chairs and EVPs Shahar Ayash and Sebastian Tschackert added.
About JAS Worldwide
JAS was founded in 1978 in Milan, Italy, and its global headquarters is located in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. Over the last four decades, JAS has grown from regional roots to a global force in logistics covering all modes of transportation, including contract logistics and other sophisticated and digital-driven supply chain solutions. Today, JAS covers 100+ countries with over 7,000 employees globally and continues to expand with its core culture, “People make the difference.”
Seaports are critical components of the global transport system. JAS is present with our own port terminals at every port in Norway as well as via our partners in countries around the globe. This provides a global network of opportunities for our customers with the ability to meet all types of international inquiries. With convenient port locations, it is only a short distance from ships to land-based logistics functions.
We have a close relationship with large industrial suppliers and ship owners and operate as agents for the largest feeder companies. We offer loading and discharging of bulk loads, tankers, and container vessels, and quayside storage provides direct access to container ships and marine vessels. This is available from both our own and our clients’ quays. In addition, our experienced team members can provide all services related to the stuffing, stripping, securing, and packaging of goods in containers.
All Norway ports have container depots and dedicated staff with broad experience in terminal operations. Our teams of qualified service engineers oversee the maintenance and repair of all containers, ensuring they are ready to be loaded and shipped. We provide daily stock- and movement-reports, and always have the right equipment available at the right time.
We offer a cross-docking solution that keeps your goods moving. The storage time is significantly reduced, or eliminated, as the goods are distributed directly to the customer. The goods are received through an inbound dock, separated, mixed as required, and directly transferred to the outbound dock. This is a convenient solution for temperature-controlled goods that must be transported quickly or already packaged and sorted goods.
One of the most important things in port logistics is personal service. We put the customers first, solving their problems by providing customized solutions and around-the-clock customer service with flexible and reliable processes. No matter the size of your shipment or the needs you may have, we are your complete port logistics provider.
