For aerospace and commercial aviation companies who operate a global and evolving supply chain, under strict quality and compliance guidelines, JAS transportation solutions, AS 9120 certification and flourishing global network can help drive top and bottom line growth by improving service quality and operational efficiency, increasing end-to-end visibility, and by ensuring accurate and on-time delivery of parts to customers worldwide.

Globalization is driving a boom in commercial aviation.  The worldwide fleet of aircraft is set to double over the next 20 years, exceeding 40,000 total aircraft in service.  Emerging markets, specifically in Asia, will lead the growth.  Demand for Maintenance, Overhaul, and Repair (MRO) services continues to increase as new aircraft production levels rise.  Efficient aftermarket supply chains are required to manage critical parts and parts to service current aging fleets.  The industry is increasingly outsourcing their supply chain work in order to maximize profitability, putting greater reliance on 3PLs.  Make JAS that choice!

JAS Aerospace to participate in the 2022 Supply Chain Nearshoring Summit

November 3, 2022

JAS Aerospace

JAS is proud to be participating in the 2022 Supply Chain Nearshoring Summit in Queretaro, Mexico. In 2004 Mexico had 100 U.S. and European Aerospace manufacturers, in 2017 that number had grown to 330 and it is still growing. The aerospace industry is one of the largest industries manufacturing in Mexico today, proving to be a lucrative investment for the country.

JAS works with a range of companies in the aerospace industry – from Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers, to OEMs (original equipment manufacturers), and MROs (maintenance, repair and overhaul) clients. Beyond our freight forwarding services, JAS also offers Aircraft on Ground (AOG) services, out of gauge services, and engine transport solutions to the sector.  One driving feature of our aerospace success is our JAS technology solutions. The team’s ability to put data to work for our aerospace customers so that they can make more intelligent decisions is not only allowing JAS to grow our current customer base, but attracting new clients for our customers. The success of our customers is our success.

“One of the key parts of aerospace for JAS is sitting and learning from our customers as we listen to what challenges they have. This makes events like the Supply Chain Nearshoring Summit in Queretaro, Mexico, extremely important to us,” shared John Brennan, Senior Vice President, Aerospace.

JAS has built a worldwide network of Aerospace experts. With offices in locations such as Bangalore, Dallas, Hamburg, Los Angeles, Queretaro, Singapore, Seattle, Tianjin, and Toulouse our team members bring knowledge specific to the aerospace supply chain to our clients.

JAS takes pride in making a difference for our customers. Therefore, when a customer reached out to our team needing to move photovoltaic modules for aircraft the JAS Energy Solutions team in Brazil created a customized solution for this unique shipment.

Photovoltaic modules provide a sustainable energy source for powering aircraft. The team, with the support of the JAS Logistics Agent in Fortaleza, began moving the modules in November 2022 and has since cleared over half of the shipment.

In total, there will be 57 shipments (615 containers), totaling 10,421 pallets of solar panels destined for new solar plants in the state of Ceará.  

Brazil added more than 9 GW of solar power in 2022, which is the best year in the history of the sector, with a growth of more than 80% compared to 2021. Today, Ceará is the second largest energy producer in Brazil.
