DRIVING THE AUTOMOTIVE SUPPLY CHAIN

Auto manufacturing

With global automotive sales reaching an all time record of 88M+ vehicles sold in 2016, the automotive industry continues at a record breaking pace.

Recognizing the need for specialized talent and skills relating specifically to the auto industry, JAS has formally created an Automotive Vertical catering to OEMs, Tier 1 &2 and 3PL customers. The Just-In-Time global supply chain supporting these customers are dependent on the flawless delivery and information updates by the JAS Automotive Vertical team.

JAS currently supports the Inbound Material logistics, Supply Chain solutions and Aftermarket components for its automotive customers. Future growth opportunities also lie in the finished vehicles sector as well as Value Added Assemblies.

​The automotive industry's supply chain is a complex one involving many partners including tier suppliers and original equipment manufacturers. It is also one that typically spans many countries. The complexity of the automotive supply chain is often attributed to the coordination and delivery of components from numerous companies in different countries that in turn must be carefully planned to ensure a smooth manufacturing and assembly process.

JAS Automotive understands the complexities of the industry, market volatility, unique interface requirements, and critical deadline requirements. We work with leading automotive manufacturers and suppliers throughout the world, utilizing our effective account management program to develop and maintain seamless product flows.

JAS France Visits EuroFos terminal

Recently, JAS France organized a visit of the Fos port in Marseille with some customers. More than 30 people were welcomed on site by the JAS France sales team to learn more about the port setup and operations.

Fos port is France’s main port on the Mediterranean sea, gateway to the southern part of France. It currently handles 1.5 million TEU yearly while its capacity was recently increased to 3 million TEU, anticipating a fast growth in the coming years.

Being able to actually experience the activity of the port provides a better understanding of the current shipping environment. The fast-paced environment continues 24/7 as workers strive to meet the many demands. Despite the pressure the top priorities remain meeting schedules while observing safety guidelines both at dock and at sea.

As the team watched the vessel mooring, the dock became an anthill of activity with a dozen of straddles carrying containers back and forth. It was impressive to see all the effort and coordination required to help the goods reach their final destination on time.

JAS France would like to thank The Port of Marseille Fos and Port Synergy – EuroFos for arranging this visit! Many thanks as well to our esteemed customers who joined us for this day together!

JAS Italy Holds Midyear Management Meeting

After two years of social distancing imposed by the pandemic, Mr. Leonardo Baldi, JAS Italy CEO, organized the 2022 Annual Mid-Year Management Meeting.

At this meeting, the JAS Italy Management Team was provided with further results and directions, along with highly detailed market updates, thanks to the incredible participation of our Airline and Steam Ship Line Partners.

During the meeting the team also celebrated the retirement of JAS Italy colleagues: Franco Pinzani (Ocean Freight Director) and Maurizio Pedrinazzi (Airfreight Director). Together with two very special guests Mr. Biagio Bruni, JAS Chairman & Founder, and Mr. Graeme Robinson, EVP Operations of JAS Worldwide, we all congratulated with them on this important milestone.

Such a special occasion required a prestigious location. The FERRARI Maranello Museum was selected not only because of its beautiful location, but because it exemplifies the spirit and message given from Mr. Baldi to the entire management team: “Teamwork and continued improvement to achieve our goals.”
