King of Cashmere Entrusts JAS

June 19, 2017

A luxury Italian fashion brand with the nickname “King of Cashmere," which was chosen by a member of the royal family, has entrusted JAS to provide top quality logistics services from Italy to one of the most important and rising consumer markets for the brand in China and Macau.

The journey of the garment on hanger, flat packs, handbags, accessories and CITES items start in Italy with JAS offices handling the air freight to Hong Kong, Shanghai and Macau.

With an extensive China network, JAS also handles delivery into nine shops in China and direct shipments to other China cities like Beijing, Changchun, Chengdu, Dalian, Harbin and Nanjing.

Shipments arriving into JAS Hong Kong logistics center in Tsing Yi will be pick and packed and then delivered into three local shops in Hong Kong.

In Macau, local orders will be sent as cross-dock shipments by feeder. Strategically and efficiently located, the JAS warehouse in Macau is 2km from the pier, 3km from Wynn Macau and 12km from Cotai. With a total area of 5,000 sqf, fully air-conditioned and state-of-the-art security systems including web-enabled CCTV monitoring system, security card access system, motion detectors and 7x 24 security patrol installed, we are proud of the lead time we achieve for the customer.

JAS has built a new GDP certified Pharma & Healthcare warehouse in Chicago.

JAS Constructs Pharma & Healthcare Facility in Chicago

JAS Worldwide has built a new pharma and healthcare warehouse outside of Chicago to further expand its offerings to customers in the pharma and healthcare industry.

The new 83,650-square-foot facility includes a temperature-controlled receiving dock with three dedicated dock doors leading directly into temperature-controlled areas. Within this space, there is a roughly 8,000 square foot CRT (controlled room temperature) chamber maintained at +15 to +25°C, as well as a 4,300 square foot cold room designed to handle temperature requirements of +2 to +8°C. To meet the needs of customers requiring even more specialized storage, a -20°C super freezer is available within the cold room.

Arnon Lopes, Sr. Director of Customer Experience, Americas Pharma & Healthcare states, "With 24/7/365 operations led by experienced staff who are GDP trained, our customers have access to the expedited and robust cold chain handling necessary to meet even the most stringent requirements of the pharma and healthcare industry. Our Chicago facility is also the Americas hub for our own freighter network seamlessly connecting Europe and USA."

The strategically located site is only a short distance from O'Hare International Airport, one of the largest U.S. airfreight gateways for cargo, allowing the team to keep supply chains moving. In addition, its geographic position near one of the largest interstate highway systems in the United States is only a 1- or 2-day truck drive away from most of the country's residents.

The facility underscores JAS' dedication to this rapidly growing industry and the customers it serves. "This new GDP-certified facility's close proximity to customers, capacity, and ability to serve a wide range of different temperature needs for our pharma and healthcare client's sensitive products forms a strong foundation for continued strategic growth. We continue to strengthen our global network and connect our valued clients with the services and solutions they need,” comments Giancarlo Rosselli, Vice President, Pharma & Healthcare Sales, Americas Region.

With a growing network of 35 GDP-certified branches across the globe, JAS has made significant investments in people, digital technology, and infrastructure in support of its strategy to provide the best quality logistics services for customers of the pharma and healthcare industry.
