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 has built a new GDP certified Pharma & Healthcare warehouse in Chicago.

JAS Constructs Pharma & Healthcare Facility in Chicago

JAS Worldwide has built a new pharma and healthcare warehouse outside of Chicago to further expand its offerings to customers in the pharma and healthcare industry.

The new 83,650-square-foot facility includes a temperature-controlled receiving dock with three dedicated dock doors leading directly into temperature-controlled areas. Within this space, there is a roughly 8,000 square foot CRT (controlled room temperature) chamber maintained at +15 to +25°C, as well as a 4,300 square foot cold room designed to handle temperature requirements of +2 to +8°C. To meet the needs of customers requiring even more specialized storage, a -20°C super freezer is available within the cold room.

Arnon Lopes, Sr. Director of Customer Experience, Americas Pharma & Healthcare states, "With 24/7/365 operations led by experienced staff who are GDP trained, our customers have access to the expedited and robust cold chain handling necessary to meet even the most stringent requirements of the pharma and healthcare industry. Our Chicago facility is also the Americas hub for our own freighter network seamlessly connecting Europe and USA."

The strategically located site is only a short distance from O'Hare International Airport, one of the largest U.S. airfreight gateways for cargo, allowing the team to keep supply chains moving. In addition, its geographic position near one of the largest interstate highway systems in the United States is only a 1- or 2-day truck drive away from most of the country's residents.

The facility underscores JAS' dedication to this rapidly growing industry and the customers it serves. "This new GDP-certified facility's close proximity to customers, capacity, and ability to serve a wide range of different temperature needs for our pharma and healthcare client's sensitive products forms a strong foundation for continued strategic growth. We continue to strengthen our global network and connect our valued clients with the services and solutions they need,” comments Giancarlo Rosselli, Vice President, Pharma & Healthcare Sales, Americas Region.

With a growing network of 35 GDP-certified branches across the globe, JAS has made significant investments in people, digital technology, and infrastructure in support of its strategy to provide the best quality logistics services for customers of the pharma and healthcare industry.
