During the peak of the Italian Covid-19 crisis, JAS South Africa received instructions from JAS Italy to handle an urgent PPE shipment for the PROTEZIONE CIVILE ITALIANA. 11,343 cartons containing surgical masks needed to be uplifted from Durban, transported to Johannesburg and sent by airfreight to Italy.
The necessary arrangements with JAS South Africa’s transporter were swiftly made and all of the cargo was uplifted on 12 trucks and moved up to Johannesburg. Upon arrival, the merchandise was palletized into two shipments, respectively of 251 and 154 Pallets. Simultaneously, negotiations were taking place with various airlines for Charter options and our long-term partner, Cargolux, was chosen as the airline of choice. The two shipments were then booked on two Charters, the first one departing on the 21st of March and the second on the 28th of March. Arrangements with Cargolux continued being processed as relevant traffic rights were needed to be obtained in order for the Charters to move directly into Italy from South Africa.
The first shipment was delivered to Cargolux on the 19th of March, and the flight departed as scheduled. The second shipment proved to be more challenging, as South Africa was on the verge of a Nationwide lockdown, which began on the 27th of March. However, thanks to JAS South Africa’s efforts, the shipment made it out on time and was successfully loaded on board the flight which departed on schedule. This second shipment was on the last Cargolux flight out of South Africa, which was Day 1 of the South Africa lockdown.
