JAS Switzerland was founded in 1996. By the end of 2017, the industrial zone where JAS Novazzano is located, was increased to 38,000 sqm., the largest industrial area of the Swiss Italian Canton.
Despite the traditional cross-border activities, since 2013 JAS has focused on overseas services and air and ocean freight import / export with a particular attention to the luxury and fashion industry.
We are fully compliant with the common worldwide certifications and enjoy a special customs status of "free trade area" where a true supply chain concept is achievable without major administrative constrains.
JAS Switzerland and the JAS EMEA HQ are located in Novazzano (Chiasso) and a Swiss branch office is located in Kloten (Zurich).
Both Locations are a certified and Airfreight Regulated Agent. Furthermore JAS Novazzano is GDP (Good Distribution Practice of Medicinal Products for Human use) certified.
JAS now has access to additional transportation solutions throughout Europe, including:
With one team managing all transportation solutions in Europe, customers have access to a single point of contact that can manage your flow of goods regardless of transportation method. This opens up a range of alternatives on the same trade lane and allows for tailor-made solutions that best fit your needs.
For instance, for those with sustainability as a top priority, your single point of contact might suggest a shortsea or intermodal solution as a default method of transportation while still having the option of road transport if needed.
Perhaps, you have heavy cargo to be transported over long distances. In this case, a shortsea solution might be the most cost-effective and sustainable alternative. However, road transportation is likely the most flexible alternative if time is critical and planning is complex.
Whatever your needs, our team members are equipped to help customers create an even smarter supply chain.
For more information about how you can reduce your environmental impact by making more sustainable transportation choices, reach out to your local sales representative today.
Supply chain management is a complicated process even under the best of conditions. When a tropical storm occurs, the process is made even more complex as the extreme weather can not only wreak havoc on homes and buildings; but, the subsequent high winds and flooding, can disrupt and delay freight transportation, potentially causing supply chain delays and failures. As tropical storm season begins, it is important to plan ahead for adverse weather events to minimize potential repercussions.
With the start of tropical storm season having arrived, it is important to be prepared for whatever disruptions severe weather might bring. Whether it is developing a contingency plan long before extreme weather conditions occur or rerouting cargo and utilizing air cargo options when severe weather occurs, JAS can help keep your supply chain running smoothly. To make sure you are ready for tropical storm season, contact your local JAS office.
