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.

Here’s a snapshot of how we have been making a difference, one community at a time.

In Peru, the Pay It Forward effort was made possible through a partnership with JAS Peru, Sweet Child Peru, and The Green Heroes Educational Center. The project supported Andean communities by providing environmental education and nutritious meals to children. Community members enjoyed activities such as tree planting and soap making, all centered on sustainability and ecological education.

The Service Provider Award distinguishes exceptional service providers who have demonstrated efficiency, best practices, and outstanding results. It honors those who have enhanced their competitiveness in the Chinese market through innovation and sustainable business strategies.

JAS China's innovative LCL reefer product, developed in collaboration with the CICC Logistics Working Group, has revolutionized the export, transportation, and clearance of Food and Beverage goods.

This innovative approach has not only catered to the sector's needs but has set a new standard in the logistics industry.

"International trade between China and Italy is a dynamic landscape, where the future is determined by current bold moves. When we deal with the opportunity of cross-border reefer service, we need to be agile and build partnerships that go beyond borders. This is how we support flourishing trading between two countries while enabling the success of our customers at both ends," said Marco Civardi, CEO, JAS China
