Over a decade ago JAS decided to set up a team of people dedicated to the handling of food products. Since that first idea was implemented we managed to grow substantially our presence in this very important market and now we handle thousands of ocean and airfreight shipments yearly.
Food sales are constantly exceeding previous records and have been growing steadily through these years of international economic crisis. All the statistics show that the demand for fresh or gourmet products is strong and will continue to expand. For this reason JAS has been developing special services for this industry and is now in position to offer a broad variety of unique services that range from the shipment of dry and canned food to fresh and frozen FCL and LCL orders, to the handling of fresh fruits coming from various origins. We handle also daily air shipments of fresh and super-fresh products to many worldwide destinations.
JAS also focuses on providing safety, reliability, competitiveness, and innovation in alcoholic beverages international logistics to support you in growing your business.
In business with importers and exporters for several decades, we are used to providing special care to the your delicate products. Our wine and spirits dedicated service list includes air and sea door-to-door temperature controlled services, specialized teams in export and import countries, state-of-the-art order tracking, a worldwide presence, and passion to serve you in the best manner possible.
Wine has been produced in the Iberian Peninsula for many centuries.
Throughout Portugal, there are fourteen Delimited Wine Regions. Due to unique geography of the area, a variety of quality wines such as sparkling wines, white wines, red wines, rosé wines, and different kinds of vinegar can be found.
In 2015, Portugal’s Alentejo Region launched its award winning “Alentejo Wine Sustainability Program” (PSVA) in the region’s vineyards, in part, to promote more sustainable wine production environment.
As part of this move towards more sustainable wine production, JAS offers short sea shipping services as an innovative transportation alternative to road freight.
The service operates from Porto in Portugal to the Nordic region. Cargo for the Nordic market is consolidated from all over Spain and Portugal, where it is then shipped to Gothenburg for further distribution in the Nordics.
“This sustainable service option is a way for shippers to reduce direct emissions but also mitigate congested roads and shortage of drivers. It is our ambition to make it simple for our clients to switch to sustainable alternatives without having to recreate their entire supply chain, says Ari Malvela, Head of Road Freight.
Less than container load (LCL) allows you to ship smaller quantities more frequently. With weekly departures and fast transit times it is easier than ever to build supply chains that are both efficient and sustainable.
“Can we afford not to become more sustainable? This logistics solution is part of our initiative “Green Solutions” and reduces your environmental footprint up to 80% when compared to using road freight. One feeder vessel carries the equivalent of 500 truckloads, reducing the pressure on congested roads as well as the environment,” says Stefan Larsen, Ocean Freight Manager.
