All aspects of 2020 have undoubtedly been different and challenging. Placing an emphasis on the health of those around us became a primary focus and continues to be so, causing changes to traditions and disruptions to annual plans in order to protect those we care about.
At JAS, People have always made the difference and continue to do so. That is why in 2020 JAS made sure to take every precaution to keep our team and our customers safe, while still delivering good cheer. As we are living and learning to navigate this new era; JAS McAllen knew they had to maintain a safe social distance from the recipients of the annual JAS Calendar, but they still wanted to leave customers with a sense of how grateful JAS is to have them be with us for another year. Therefore JAS McAllen decided to make a caravan to deliver calendars in the parking lots of customers where possible.
There will be time to share again, meanwhile we continue to do business at a safe social distance and create new excitement in doing so.
Happy New Year 2021 from the JAS McAllen Team.

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!
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.
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.
At JAS People Make the Difference!
