JAS Chile successfully exported more than 550 tons of premium fresh cherries to the Chinese market this cherry season.
JAS Chile Celebrates Milestone in 2023 Cherry Season with Over 550 Tons Exported to China

JAS Chile proudly announces a significant milestone in the 2023 cherry season, having successfully exported more than 500 tons of premium fresh cherries to the Chinese market.

Key to this accomplishment was JAS Chile's strategic approach, built on the pillars of quality, speed, and reliability. The collaboration and trust placed in us by partners Ocho Fuegos and Harvest Time played a pivotal role in achieving this milestone, and we express our gratitude for their support.

Facilitating the seamless transportation of our cherries, JAS Chile engaged in a critical partnership with Qatar Airways Cargo. The utilization of two full Boeing 777 freighters, each loaded with over 120 pallets and 96 tons of cherries, was instrumental in ensuring the swift and secure delivery of the produce to China. This collaboration underscored JAS's commitment to meeting the high standards demanded by the market.

“We are proud of our achievement, and we anticipate new challenges and opportunities in the future,” said Phillip Reid Air Freight Manager for JAS Chile.  

As JAS Chile reflects on the success of the 2023 cherry season, it looks forward to embracing new challenges and opportunities on the horizon. This accomplishment serves as a testament to JAS Chile's dedication to quality service and its commitment to being a reliable partner in the global supply chain.

From the mountains of Peru to the coasts of Indonesia and the heart of Malaysia and Cambodia, this month’s initiatives have brought people together in the spirit of sustainability and support. 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.

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
