Care and Follow-Up Key to Successful Engine Transport

JAS Mexico and Spain partner on aircraft engine delivery

July 29, 2021

Transporting an engine is a delicate operation. Moving an engine via aircraft adds a layer of difficulty that requires expertise, reliability, and commitment to the aerospace sector.  

Teams at JAS Mexico and JAS Spain recently partnered to complete the secure transport of an aircraft engine from Mexico City to the Madrid Airport Terminal in Spain. Engine dimensions were 450x250x255 cm. The total weight of the engine was 4,920 kgs. An engine this size required special transport arrangements and supervision during lashing to ensure the cargo’s safe arrival at its destination.  

Ricardo Molinero, Operations Manager for JAS Madrid, said the teams followed a strict procedure designed to avoid damage to the engine’s inner beadings. “They are very prone to damage if lashing is not done correctly since the engine cradle must, on one hand, be firmly secured to the truck bed but allowing as well some movement, so the inner beadings won’t break,” he said.  

To safeguard the engine’s delicate inner beadings, the teams adhere to the following protocol:

  • The engine was installed lengthwise in the transport vehicle.  
  • The stand base was laid on the truck bed, with the caster wheels and tow bars locked in a stored position.  
  • The engine/cradle and cradle/base fastenings were put in place and checked for secureness.  
  • The engine installed on the cradle was attached to the shipping base and equipped with shock insulators.  
  • The minimum required clearance of 4 inches between the cradle and the truck bed was verified. If clearance space is not confirmed, wood shoring must be placed beneath the transportation base side rails and nailed to the trailer bed to prevent movement that can damage the engine.
  • The shoring was secured to keep it from protruding inboard of the side rails, which can interfere with the vertical movement of the shock mounts or engine cradle.  
  • The base only was attached to the trailer bed using tie-down points.

This is the third engine JAS Mexico has transported this year. It is the first time JAS Spain’s team has collaborated on a logistics job involving an engine. The engine left Mexico City on July 4 and arrived in Madrid on the afternoon of July 7. Delivery was made on July 8 per the customer’s request. “The engine was delivered timely, fulfilling our client’s tight deadline,” said Molinero.


El transporte de un motor de aeronave siempre conlleva una operativa muy delicada.Si además, hablamos de un transporte aéreo,  se añade una capa dedificultad que requiere de amplia experiencia ,fiablidad y compromiso con el sector aeroespacial.

Los equipos de JAS México y JAS España seasociaron recientemente para  organizar el transporte aéreo de un motor deavión desde la Ciudad de México hasta la Terminal del Aeropuerto de Madrid enEspaña. Las dimensiones del motor fueron de 450x250x255cm, con un peso total de 4.920 kg. El transportede un motor de este tamaño requiere de lacoordinación organización de recogidas y entregas dedicadas con personal especializado y  de una supervisión estricta de la operativa de trincado paragarantizar la llegada segura de la carga a su destino.

Ricardo Molinero, Directorde Operaciones de JAS España, indicó que los equipos de trabajo involucrados siguieron unprocedimiento estricto diseñado para evitar daños en los rodamientos del motor. "Son muy propensos a dañarsesi el trincado de la pieza  no se hacecorrectamente, ya que la cuna del motor debe,por un lado, estar firmemente asegurada a la plataforma del camión, peropermitiendo la sujeción, al mismo tiempo, elfuncionamiento del muellaje del motor, para que rodamientosno se vean afectados", dijo.

Para la protección durante el transportede los delicados rodamientos del motor, los equiposse adhieren al siguiente protocolo:

  • El motor se instaló longitudinalmente en el vehículo de transporte.
  • La base del soporte se colocó sobre la plataforma del camión, con las ruedas giratorias y las barras de remolque bloqueadas en una posición de almacenamiento.
  • Se colocaron las fijaciones del motor / soporte y del soporte / base y se verificó su seguridad.
  • El motor instalado en la base se adjuntó a la base de envío y se equipó con aislantes de choque.
  • Se verificó el espacio libre mínimo requerido de 4 pulgadas entre la base y la plataforma del camión. Si no se confirma el espacio libre, se deben colocar apuntalamientos de madera debajo de los rieles laterales de la base de transporte y clavarlos en la plataforma del remolque para evitar movimientos que puedan dañar el motor.
  • El apuntalamiento fue asegurado para evitar que sobresalga hacia el interior de los rieles laterales, lo que puede interferir con el movimiento vertical de los amortiguadores o el soporte del motor.
  • La base solo se fijó a la plataforma del remolque mediante puntos de amarre.

Este es el tercer motor que JAS Méxicotransporta este año, siendo la primera vez que elequipo de JAS España colabora en la operativa de transporte .  Elmotor embarcó desde la Ciudad de México el 4 de julio , llegando a Madrid en latarde del 7 de julio. La entregó se realizó el 8 de julio según solicitado por el cliente.  “El motor seentregó a tiempo, cumpliendo con el ajustado plazo deentrega nuestro cliente”, dijo Molinero.

JAS NEWS ADVISORY: GOLDEN WEEK

This notice serves as a reminder of the yearly Golden Week holiday in China.

During this time, factories typically close, and production is halted or limited. In addition, airlines, shipping companies, railway, and commercial operators also typically suspend their activities or run-on skeleton crews during these days.

Given the current market situation (COVID-19, severe port congestion, equipment shortages, etc.), Golden Week 2021 will likely have a more significant impact on your supply chain than in years past. Backlog is expected to continue to accumulate while activities at ports and airport are halted or reduced. Therefore, it is important you are prepared and take this into account when planning your imports

Biagio Bruni Speaks at AGORA 2021 Conference

The rapidly evolving pandemic, combined with the continued poor performance of carriers aggravated by growing demand for goods, has highlighted how fragile supply chains are due to globalization and delocalization. In fact, it has brought to the fore the phenomena of Reshoring/Nearshoring. This has accelerated the development of E-Commerce in Italy and has increased the importance of the "Made in Italy"  brand and the positioning of Italy within the global supply chain. (Source: Alsea Report in collaboration with Osservatorio Export Digitale del Politecnico di Milano).

JAS is always looking ahead to prepare for market changes and ways to serve our customers better. As a part of these efforts, JAS recently completed the acquisition of Tigers. With its long-standing expertise in both the Contract Logistics and E-Commerce sectors combined with its sophisticated IT systems, JAS will be able to provide logistical support and communicate digitally with our customers. In addition, these new systems will allow JAS to collaborate with customers to coordinate transit times and transport modes which will help customers' reduce CO2 emissions and the overall environmental impact.

With this objective, JAS has increased its usage of FCL rail service between China and Italy, transporting individual units or organizing block trains reserved entirely for JAS. Eco-sustainable, with low environmental impact, the service offers a competitive transit time when compared with current maritime services. Furthermore, as a part of the efforts to help customers reduce their CO2 emissions, JAS has increased the use of FCL rail services on the CHINA-ITALY section, transporting individual units or coordinating block trains entirely reserved for JAS. Eco-sustainable, with low environmental impact, the service currently offers a competitive transit time compared to current maritime services.

In further news, to better serve our customer's needs in this rapidly changing environment, on July 14, 2021, JAS Italy completed the acquisition of the company Bossi & C. Transiti S.p.A.. Specializing in the maritime field and headquartered in Genoa, branches will operate out of Verona and Vercelli while maintaining a commercial/operational office in Hong Kong.

Biagio Bruni parteciperà al forum Confetra AGORA' 2021 e discuterà dell'impatto della pandemia sul nostro business e come JAS ha reagito in questo nuovo scenario

L’esplosione della pandemia e il perdurare delle scarse performance dei

vettori aggravate da continui rincari, ha evidenziato quanto può essere fragile la globalizzazione e la rincorsa alla delocalizzazione della Supply Chain.

Infatti questa situazione ha riportato alla ribalta i fenomeni del Reshoring/Near-Shoring, accelerando anche in Italia lo sviluppo

dell’E-Commerce, ma anche aumentando l’importanza del prodotto e del

Brand «Made in Italy», posizionando l’Italia «nelle catene globali del valore». (Fonte :  report di Alsea in collaborazione con Osservatorio Export Digitale del Politecnico di Milano).

Sempre con spirito lungimirante e cercando d’interpretare in anticipo le necessità dettate dai cambiamenti del mercato, JAS ha risposto con la recente acquisizione di TIGERS, mirando ad una espansione nei settori del Contract Logistics e dell’ E-Commerce, grazie ai quali sarà in grado di fornire supporto logistico, coadiuvato da sofisticati sistemi informatici per comunicare digitalmente con tutti i clienti che collaborano con JAS e armonizzando i tempi di transito con una ridotta immissione di CO2, selezionando modalità di trasporto a ridotto impatto ambientale.

Con tale obiettivo, JAS ha sviluppato ed incrementato sulla tratta CINA-ITALIA l’utilizzo dell’efficace servizio su ferro ed utilizzando le polizze Blue World Line, garantiamo servizi Groupage e servizi FCL con elevati standard di servizio. Ecosostenibile, con bassissimo impatto ambientale, il servizio offre ad oggi un Transit Time molto competitivo rispetto gli attuali servizi marittimi.

In data 14 luglio 2021, JAS Italia ha completato l’acquisizione della società Bossi & C. Transiti S.p.A. specializzata nel campo marittimo, con sede a Genova e filiali a Verona, Vercelli, oltre che un ufficio commerciale/operativo ad Hong Kong.

JAS Hong Kong Supports Product Assembly for Gaming Manufacturer

As the consumer market recovers in 2021, logistics services and supply chain management requirements have become increasingly challenging and cover more than just transportation and warehousing. JAS Hong Kong has always thought one step ahead for its customers. Therefore, in Q2 2021, the JAS Hong Kong logistics team successfully launched a product assembly program for a world-leading gaming accessories provider.  

The partnership between JAS Hong Kong and the customer began in 2012. Over the last nine years the project has increased more than threefold. The customer's success is due not only to the exponential growth of the gaming market but also its continuous launch of new products and promotional combo/bundle sets. Each bundle consists of 3 or 4 products, which include items such as a gaming keyboard, mouse, and headset. The latest launch was in the summer of 2021 and entered the US market through megastores or e-Commerce platforms. JAS Hong Kong exclusively handled the entire assembly process including material sourcing and procurement, system support, assembly-line operation, and space and human resources management.  

The bundle set program was carried out over the course of 3 months in 2021. During this period, over 40 additional workers per day were deployed for a total of 36 working days. Over 50,000 sets were constructed and shipped to the United States in 23 containers (40'HQ) under the supervision of the JAS team.  

Of the project Jason Tse, Logistics Manager for JAS Hong Kong, said “The hassle-free solution designed by the JAS team enabled the customer to focus its resources on product design, sales, and marketing knowing JAS would make the rest of the process worry free.”

JAS continually provides service that meets and exceeds every industry standard as well as our customers’ expectations. JAS is confident that there are more successful partnerships ahead.
