DRIVING THE AUTOMOTIVE SUPPLY CHAIN

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 Thailand Puts Emphasis on Automotive

August 20, 2019

As of 2017, the Thailand automotive industry was the largest in Southeast Asia and the 12th largest in the world. The Thailand industry has an annual output of near two million vehicles (passenger cars and pickup trucks), more than countries such as Belgium, the United Kingdom, Italy, Czech Republic, and Turkey.

Most of the vehicles built in Thailand are developed and licensed by foreign producers, mainly Japanese, American, and Chinese but with several other brands as well for CKD production, notably BMW and Mercedes. The Thai car industry takes advantage of the ASEAN Free Trade Area (AFTA) to find a market for many of its products. Thailand is one of the world's biggest markets for pickup trucks with over 50 percent market share for one-ton trucks.

Within this favorable context, our VP Automotive Vertical, Jim Ryan and our Global Account Director – Automotive Vertical APAC, Shane Ravel joined the first Automotive Sales Campaign in Thailand in March 2019, where they met with first/second tier suppliers such as LEAR, BorgWarner, Faurecia, CNH, IHI Turbo, American Axle, Continental, etc. The initiative has been managed and coordinated by Franck Portet (NSM for JAS TH) and his team members Mr. Kiattikhun Vunthong and Ms. Anong Chaliawsin.  

In order to mirror the vertical global initiative, JAS Thailand has assigned Kiattikhun Vunthong as National Account Manager – Automotive Vertical, who will be focusing on the development of automotive accounts in the “Detroit of the East” (Rayong area). JAS Thailand has already had a very productive year with Jim, Shane and the JAS TH team and are looking forward to having Shane in Thailand again to explore the huge potential available.

With Kiattikhun’s experience and the sales effort of our BDM – Anong Chaliawsin, from our Laem Chabang office, we are adding additional focus on the Automotive vertical.

With the expertise of the JAS TH team and the support from the global JAS Automotive industry, JAS Thailands looks forward to expanding and enabling their customers to have the best support available!

JAS Introduces Blue World Atlantic

The current pandemic has caused shipping disruptions across the globe.  

With a 70% reduction in passenger flights since February 2020, the overall global air freight capacity is down about 25% from this time last year.  Limited space on limited flights means frequent delays and interruptions of supply chains globally.

With the unpredictable availability of cargo space, how do we regain control of air freight to ensure service in such a critical time?  

The traditional air freight model is no longer a realistic option, instead Flight Operations are the key for maintaining a reliable and uninterrupted supply chain by providing door-to-door control of the shipping process. With a Flight Operation, every step of the process - from the time the cargo is picked up to its final delivery - is meticulously managed by the service provider.  

Shipments are processed through facilities controlled by the service provider, both at origin and destination. This system avoids the typical congestion at airport hubs, reduces overall transit time, and increases control.

The aircraft themselves offer unmatched flexibility to meet all cargo needs. Freighters have the capability to move normal and specialized cargo such as dangerous goods, oversized pieces, and shipments requiring refrigeration such as perishable and pharma.  

Lastly, a prime network of delivery options carries the cargo to its ultimate destination.

In early August JAS introduced BLUE WORLD ATLANTIC, a weekend roundtrip Flight Operation between Chicago and Frankfurt, utilizing B 747 – 400 F Nose-Load for optimum loading capabilities. The BLUE WORLD ATLANTIC prime schedule is the best solution for supporting customers in the transatlantic air freight corridor!

If your business could benefit from a regular flight operation in the transatlantic corridor contact a local JAS representative for more information.
