Flight Operations Utilized for Industrial Client

JAS Italy & JAS USA Coordinate to Transport Machinery

June 4, 2021

JAS prides itself on the ability to make a difference for their customers. So, when an industrial sector client reached out to them about moving a 650 CBM piece of machinery from the USA to Italy, JAS was able to quickly mobilize and find the most efficient solution, in the most challenging market.

The shipment was coordinated by the JAS Como branch in Italy in cooperation with the JAS Memphis branch in the USA.

Due to its nonstandard dimensions, the shipment required five Blue World Atlantic flights from Chicago to Frankfurt. Once the cargo arrived in Frankfurt, a total of 15 trucks were used for its final delivery to the client in Italy.

JAS offers weekly flight operations on the transatlantic trade lane with predictable lead times to and from the USA and Europe. These flights provide guaranteed capacity and control and each flight offers a hub solution so transfers can be arranged to and from multiple origin and destination points.

Thanks to the collaboration of both the JAS USA and JAS Italy teams, the customers' demands were successfully met and the shipment arrived safely and on time.

JAS to Acquire Greencarrier Freight Services International

Atlanta, USA

JAS Worldwide, the global freight forwarding services provider headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, is pleased to announce that it has signed a Share Purchase Agreement to acquire Greencarrier Freight Services International AB, the freight forwarding, logistics, and supply chain management division of Greencarrier Group, once all regulatory approvals have been obtained from the relevant authorities.

Headquartered in Gothenburg, Sweden, Greencarrier Freight Services International operates through offices in 11 countries with 800 employees. Greencarrier offers smart and sustainable logistic solutions and supply chain management services.

Marco Rebuffi, CEO of JAS, said, "Through the acquisition of Greencarrier Freight Services, JAS is making a strategic acquisition to add to its position in the Nordic, Baltic, and Eastern European regions and strengthen existing operations in UK and China. Our respective organizations have enjoyed a longstanding partnership, and we fully expect this to be a continuation of that great atmosphere of cooperation and shared entrepreneurial spirit."

The completion of this acquisition will close an important phase in the history of JAS - a phase that has seen the company make four acquisitions in one year, each in a different region and each designed to enhance JAS’ presence and ability to serve its clients. Following the anticipated closing of the deal, the company will focus on bringing all of the acquired companies into the JAS family.

Mikael Forsberg, CEO of Greencarrier Freight Services remarked, “This is a great match of businesses, and we are excited to continue the journey with our long-term partner, JAS Worldwide. The two networks combined will enable us to offer our customers an even higher service level, broader solutions and access to a truly global network.”

Stefan Björk, owner of Greencarrier AB said of the transaction, “In an ever-evolving freight market it is my true belief, that scale, resilience and a multi-market approach will be key to more success in the future. That is why I am sincerely happy about handing over the torch to JAS Worldwide and the Greencarrier Freight Services leadership team to continue the good work and take care of our customers and employees.”

Supplying the Future of Pharma

Since the pandemic began, the pharmaceutical industry has experienced rapid growth. As the need for quality pharmaceuticals to treat diseases of all kinds continues to increase, logistics services and solutions also must keep up with the rapid pace. According to market data, China’s temperature-controlled expert increased 16 percent on a year-over-year basis between January and July 2021.  

In partnership with one of the leading developing, manufacturing, and repair service companies for air cargo equipment, JAS China has positioned itself to serve pharma’s expanding needs through the launch of a new successful logistic project managing airfreight temperature-controlled containers in Beijing. Thanks to the recent service expansion, JAS China can confidently provide full domestic services. Customers can request warehousing, trucking and container management, and air freight services to cover the entire pharmaceutical supply chain to benefit global consumers.  

JAS China’s pharmaceutical logistics team received training on temperature-controlled container transport with its partner company. The collaboration provides an excellent opportunity for JAS China’s team to share the new service with potential pharmaceutical customers in need, adding extra value to its customers in the future.  

In addition to the official training from its new partner, JAS China’s staff completed additional training on temperature-controlled cargo to fortify its understanding of the general process involved with transporting temperature-controlled containers. JAS China’s leadership plans to continue professional development to help the team stay abreast of industry trends for temperature-controlled container logistics.  

Pharmaceutical companies interested in learning how JAS China can meet their rapid growth needs can reach out to the team today for more information.

“One-Size-Fits-All” Not a Good Fit at JAS

Simultaneously moving charters from Jakarta, Indonesia to Chicago, Illinois (USA) takes solid coordination skills. JAS Hong Kong put its expertise to the test in recent weeks via a collaboration with the logistics teams from JAS Indonesia and JAS USA (Chicago). The task at hand involved moving a tailor-made charter solution for moving ready-made garments between the two countries for a valued client.  

After much consideration on the best way to move the product, the teams decided to transport via a Boeing 777 commercial freighter. A combination of belly and cabin loading was used to optimize the shipment, which included 3,100 cartons of garments. Configuring the load this way helped prevent the cargo from scattering during transport, which was a requirement of the customer.  

Since the start of the pandemic, securing fleets and aircrew for commercial freighters can be challenging. With a little brainstorming and ingenuity from the JAS Hong Kong, Indonesia, and USA teams, they acquired the charter transport needed to provide a smooth move from the APAC region to the US.  

Customers can benefit from the solid coordination demonstrated by the JAS Hong Kong procurement team. The crew will handle two more charter requests before the end of October and looks forward to serving more customers through its solid coordination and cooperation efforts with JAS teams around the globe.

JAS Japan Opens its New Office in Nagoya

JAS Japan is pleased to announce that it relocated its Nagoya branch to a larger and more modern office space to accommodate its business growth at the end of August.

Established in 2001, the Nagoya office began as a small sales branch. However, by 2014, the Nagoya branch became fully operational. It expanded its services with an office at Nagoya Centrair Airport to offer in-house air freight consolidation and customs clearance services to clients.

With the opening of the new location, the Nagoya branch will be serving as a platform for investment and growth with the addition of a brand-new ocean freight export operations team.

The Nagoya branch also offers a strategic connotation due to its geographic location in the Aichi prefecture, the fourth largest metropolis in Japan. As a manufacturing powerhouse, the city represents just over 11% of Japan’s GDP and is the center of the Japanese automotive, aerospace, and machinery industries.

Please note our new address.
