JAS to Acquire Greencarrier Freight Services International

JAS Worldwide continues to expand its global footprint in the logistics and freight forwarding industry

JAS and Greencarrier

Atlanta, USA

JAS Worldwide, the global freight forwarding services provider headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, is pleased to announce that it has signed a Share Purchase Agreement to acquire Greencarrier Freight Services International AB, the freight forwarding, logistics, and supply chain management division of Greencarrier Group, once all regulatory approvals have been obtained from the relevant authorities.

Headquartered in Gothenburg, Sweden, Greencarrier Freight Services International operates through offices in 11 countries with 800 employees. Greencarrier offers smart and sustainable logistic solutions and supply chain management services.

Marco Rebuffi, CEO of JAS, said, "Through the acquisition of Greencarrier Freight Services, JAS is making a strategic acquisition to add to its position in the Nordic, Baltic, and Eastern European regions and strengthen existing operations in UK and China. Our respective organizations have enjoyed a longstanding partnership, and we fully expect this to be a continuation of that great atmosphere of cooperation and shared entrepreneurial spirit."

The completion of this acquisition will close an important phase in the history of JAS - a phase that has seen the company make four acquisitions in one year, each in a different region and each designed to enhance JAS’ presence and ability to serve its clients. Following the anticipated closing of the deal, the company will focus on bringing all of the acquired companies into the JAS family.

Mikael Forsberg, CEO of Greencarrier Freight Services remarked, “This is a great match of businesses, and we are excited to continue the journey with our long-term partner, JAS Worldwide. The two networks combined will enable us to offer our customers an even higher service level, broader solutions and access to a truly global network.”

Stefan Björk, owner of Greencarrier AB said of the transaction, “In an ever-evolving freight market it is my true belief, that scale, resilience and a multi-market approach will be key to more success in the future. That is why I am sincerely happy about handing over the torch to JAS Worldwide and the Greencarrier Freight Services leadership team to continue the good work and take care of our customers and employees.”

JAS is advised by BNP Paribas and Gorrissen Federspiel. Greencarrier AB is advised by Pricewaterhouse Coopers and Wistrand Advokatbyrå.

Fine Art Receives VIP Treatment

When a world-renowned artist needs safe, secure, and quick transport of 11 fiberglass art sculptures, JAS Spain is the logistics provider of choice. JAS Spain teamed up with JAS Hong Kong to ensure the shipment of delicate art from Spanish artist Cristobal Gabarron reached its destination on time. The pieces are a part of Gabarron's "Might of the Right" collection which is being shown at Fine Art Asia on October 8-11.

Gabarron is best known for his landmark series, "Mille Formes à la Conquête de l'Espace" (A Thousand Shapes to Conquer Space), first shown in Cannes in 2017. The 76-year-old artist has a passion for equality and fairness, which has served as a driving force in his creativity. French art critic and philosopher Pierre Restany once called Gabarron, “a great humanist of color.” His art has been featured in global movements of unity and cooperation, including his large-scale mural, History of the Olympics, which was inaugurated at the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona. Enlightened Universe, a steel globe surrounded by 70 colorful figures holding hands as a symbol of shared humanity was inaugurated by the secretary-general of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon, on October 25, 2015, in New York City’s Central Park. The piece was created to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the U.N.  

Since the show is an important event that only lasts a few days, the pieces needed to arrive on time. Gabarron provided the packaging and wooden crates he preferred using to ship his delicate pieces. JAS Spain’s team arranged for pick up and delivery as dedicated trucking and booked the shipment with an air-flying option. The artwork had only one transit airport up to its final destination to avoid additional manipulation of the pieces, which would have increased the risk for damage. Special cargo insurance designed for the artwork was provided by JAS Spain’s broker to cover the full value of the goods.  

The cargo was ready for pickup at Gabarron’s warehouse in Valladolid on September 23. JAS Spain’s team ordered expedited same-day delivery to Madrid to avoid manipulation risk. Gabarron’s artwork departed on September 25 and arrived in Hong Kong on September 27. Considering the shipping issues currently facing logistics companies serving the APAC region, the team was considerably pleased with the two-day transport.

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!

Masked Pilot and Co-pilot in a cockpit
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.

Cargo organization
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.
