JAS USA Spotlights Chicago Branch

May 3, 2021

JAS Chicago Warehouse

Over the course of the past few years, JAS Chicago has been one of the fastest growing and top performing branches within the global JAS organization. Then, in March 2020, the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting disruptions threatened to derail the results and momentum: the culmination of many years of hard work.  Business continuity, especially consistency in high levels of customer service, was always goal number one, but shifting an entire office staff to a virtual work environment overnight while ensuring the safety of essential warehouse personnel was an incredible challenge.

While the immediate challenge was met head on, and successfully so, by the entire JAS organization, anxiety regarding the lingering economic impacts of the pandemic was ever-present. The challenge was now how does JAS adapt to a global industry that had essentially changed overnight.  Based on the feedback of customers, JAS invested immediately into an own-controlled flight network with additional adhoc charter space to inject much needed air capacity on key trade lanes.  Due to its strategic geographic location, warehouse, and airport infrastructure, Chicago became the US hub for both the trans-Pacific and trans-Atlantic flight operations.

In one month’s time, the uncertainty had begun to fade and the excitement about a new direction was taking hold.  By the end of April 2020, the Chicago branch had transformed from a successful large local branch into a key strategic global gateway servicing the entire JAS network.  This held its own challenges and many lessons were learned from issues that arose, but every challenge was met with hard work, determination, and an eye towards the future.  

Over the following months, a continual drive to find efficiencies and improve the process and structure around the flight operations was a central focus.  The JAS Chicago team knew that this would ultimately bring value to their customers while offering a differentiator in the market for future growth.  Efficiencies in the warehouse were implemented in order to accommodate incredible volume growth in a limited space.  Warehouse efficiencies resulted in faster turn-around times from flight arrival to final-mile delivery. High performing staff were given opportunities to grow into newly created gateway leadership roles, while no less than six other promotions within the branch were executed.  New high-level talent was recruited and on-boarded that will one day grow into the future leaders within the Chicago branch and beyond.

In March of 2021, the annual USA Executive/Branch Manager meeting was held virtually.  As a result of their incredible performance and impact to the JAS global network over the course of a most challenging year, it was announced that Chicago was named the JAS USA Branch of the Year for 2020.  In the same meeting, it was announced that JAS Chicago would be expanding its footprint with plans to acquire additional warehouse space in the Chicago area in the very near future.  These two announcements illustrate what has made JAS Chicago a true success story: utilizing the success of the past to invest in the future.    

In the face of all challenges, thanks to the continued dedication and innovation of team members, JAS Chicago is able meet the needs of their customers.  Especially over the last year, it is more apparent than ever, at JAS, people make the difference!

JAS Worldwide’s decision to get into pharma & healthcare globally is a serious one because JAS can become a part of the solution to protect patient safety.  As long as we are always reminded of that, customer loyalty and financial rewards will follow."

A WORD FROM THE CEO, JAS USA

I hope this message finds you well.


One brilliant suggestion that came from our first Virtual Branch Managers Meeting, is the desire for enhanced knowledge sharing. As the management team, we agree it is important to create more visibility when it comes to achievements across the whole subsidiary and to support that, we have created this new initiative “Branch Spotlight” each month a branch will be chosen highlighting their achievements, we aim to inspire and develop relations.This month I have chosen JAS Chicago!

Patrik Gaehwiler RVP, Midwest Region & Chicago Branch Manager Jordy Romeijn


I would like to share with you some of the advancements taking place in JAS Chicago, since January 2017 our Chicago Branch has grown immensely, we are now operating with over 65 full-time employees. I am very happy with the fact that, the majority of our managers started off as operators and have grown and developed into excellent department managers whom we rely on as an essential part of the JAS USA organization.  


Early 2019, we made the decision to focus on Talent Management & Training, making it a key objective for our subsidiary, across all levels. This development has gone hand in hand with our desire to restructure the responsibilities of our department managers especially those in larger branches, no longer handling files but focusing on Operator Training and improving the quality of our service, with this alteration we are able to provide our customers with just one point of contact for each shipment, thus providing a fully comprehensive service.


Nonetheless, one of the largest developments took place this year as a result of striving to provide a quality service for our customers through the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, our weekly Charter Flight Operations.


March 2020, the Chicago Branch developed from a mid-size branch into a major JAS hub, the Chicago Team plays an essential role in breaking down our transatlantic flight cargo and distributing within our network. I believe offering this new service has strengthened the Chicago Team and improved the way in which we operate as a subsidiary, I have observed some of the finest alignment between Sales and Operations, truly working in a cohesive and committed manner.


October 2020, we announced additional weekly Flight Operations, Chicago – Atlanta & Miami, this new service will further support customers in the Americas Region, including mid-week departures to LATAM.


With this surge in volume, we have invested in increasing our efficiency, with many suggestions coming directly from our dedicated warehouse team, which happens to be my preferred approach, Bottom-up communication. We value innovative thinking and work hard to implement where possible, optimizing our Chicago warehouse space has significantly enhanced our efficiency.

Chicago Warehouse, October 2020

We used standard gaylord boxes to pre-sort, scan and organize cargo, which consumed much of the warehouse floorspace. With increases in volumes it became necessary to optimize our warehouse space and Luis Delvalle came up with the idea of using collapsible wire containers which are lightweight, stackable, and easy to roll around. This largely reduces the need for gaylord boxes which further supports our environmental efforts as an organization.


We also had the opportunity to further invest by hiring three new salespeople, who are able to develop and support new business through our Chicago hub.
The Chicago Team is an exceptional example of a proactive Branch Manager, with a team that is dedicated, working 7 days a week to meet the needs of our customers during these trying times.


I send my deepest gratitude to you all.    


A challenging year for sure, yet we cannot take for granted the knowledge and development gained, I remain optimistic for the future always, we cannot escape from the reality we live in, however I am pleased with the work we are doing, we must continue aggressively protecting and pursuing new business while remaining extremely vigilant.


I look forward to sharing in the coming months many devoted teams, working together, and committed to investing in our vision despite the ongoing pandemic, which is a true sign of greatness.
