JAS Stays Committed to Sustainability Year Around

June 5, 2021

While every June the world celebrates World Environment Day, at JAS, we are committed to sustainability year around. One way JAS does this is through our eco-friendly buildings and warehouses located throughout the world.

JAS Germany’s Extensive Green Roof:

Located just 5 minutes from the Frankfurt Airport, JAS’ multi-user warehouse in Frankfurt, Germany, is JAS’ first to feature an extensive green roof system. The green roof spans close to 11,000 sqm and is characterized by its shallow-rooted and hardy plants such as grasses and succulents. The green roof also helps with energy savings by protecting the warehouse from direct solar heat when it is hot and minimizing heat loss through the roof due to the extra insulation provided by the plants on the rooftop when it is cool.

JAS Italy Roof Top Solar Power: 

When constructing the JAS Segrate site, sustainability was of high importance. Therefore, solar panels to harness sunlight and generate electricity were installed. The solar panels allow the office to replace most of its electricity usage with renewable energy, creating a more sustainable energy solution. By utilizing this energy-efficient renewable energy source, JAS is able to combat greenhouse gas emissions and reduce our collective dependence on fossil fuels such as coal and natural gas, from which traditional electricity is sourced.

As the world comes together to celebrate Earth Day this week, JAS is continuing its commitment to promote environmental sustainability by creating an environmentally friendly atmosphere within every aspect of our organization. We believe that with the implementation of sustainability globally, we can work together to effectively reduce concerns such as pollution, the use of natural resources, and harmful greenhouse gasses.

JAS Helps Customers Navigate Screening Mandate

The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) mandated that, by June 30th, 100% of international all-cargo aircraft flights receive the same level of security screening as cargo shipments on passenger fights.

JAS USA has been working closely with the TSA for several years to implement an in-house process for screening air cargo. As a result, JAS was one of the first freight forwarders approved to conduct trials in its major gateways using canine as a primary screening method. These canine teams can screen palletized cargo without the cargo being taken apart to screen, therefore cutting the screening process from hours to minutes.

Consequently, shipments move much faster through the supply chain with JAS taking control of the screening process and not having to rely on airlines and ground handlers who face some of the following challenges:

  • Screenings taking more time than initially expected.    
  • Shipments being left behind by carriers due to incomplete screenings.    
  • Some carriers only accepting pre-screened cargo.    
  • Full terminals and airport facilities resulting in rejected cargo.    
  • Lack of warehouse space for storing cargo as it goes through the screening process.

Over the past year, JAS USA has been working diligently to prepare for this new screening mandate and is excited to see those benefits passed on to its customers. JAS customers who need help navigating these new challenges should contact their local JAS office to learn more about how JAS keeps cargo moving.
