JAS MOTORSPORT LOGISTICS

Motorcycle racers.

Racing teams around the globe rely on JAS Worldwide's Motorsport Logistics team based in Luxembourg, to meet the demanding deadlines faced by a championship motorsport organization. Motor racing is a very competitive and demanding sport and when customers in this field need something they usually need it fast because there is so much at stake.

Based on dimensions and origin of the vehicle, the JAS Motorsport Logistics team determines the best airlines to contact for the most competitive rate while maintaining the highest quality of service. JAS takes into consideration the type of aircraft the airline is operating, whether it’s a freighter service where the vehicle will ride on the main deck, or whether the vehicle can fit onto the lower deck on a passenger aircraft.

JAS race team customers are extremely active so there is tremendous pressure to move cars from course to course in a timely fashion. A typical example was when a high performance race car had to be moved from Scotland to Melbourne within a 5 day window. With this kind of schedule and the value of the cars involved, it’s no wonder that discriminating race teams rely on JAS Motorsport Logistics for their valuable cargo moves.

Care and Follow-Up Key to Successful Engine Transport

Care and Follow-Up Key to Successful Engine Transport

Transporting an engine is a delicate operation. Moving an engine via aircraft adds a layer of difficulty that requires expertise, reliability, and commitment to the aerospace sector.  

Teams at JAS Mexico and JAS Spain recently partnered to complete the secure transport of an aircraft engine from Mexico City to the Madrid Airport Terminal in Spain. Engine dimensions were 450x250x255 cm. The total weight of the engine was 4,920 kgs. An engine this size required special transport arrangements and supervision during lashing to ensure the cargo’s safe arrival at its destination.  

Ricardo Molinero, Operations Manager for JAS Madrid, said the teams followed a strict procedure designed to avoid damage to the engine’s inner beadings. “They are very prone to damage if lashing is not done correctly since the engine cradle must, on one hand, be firmly secured to the truck bed but allowing as well some movement, so the inner beadings won’t break,” he said.  

To safeguard the engine’s delicate inner beadings, the teams adhere to the following protocol:

  • The engine was installed lengthwise in the transport vehicle.  
  • The stand base was laid on the truck bed, with the caster wheels and tow bars locked in a stored position.  
  • The engine/cradle and cradle/base fastenings were put in place and checked for secureness.  
  • The engine installed on the cradle was attached to the shipping base and equipped with shock insulators.  
  • The minimum required clearance of 4 inches between the cradle and the truck bed was verified. If clearance space is not confirmed, wood shoring must be placed beneath the transportation base side rails and nailed to the trailer bed to prevent movement that can damage the engine.
  • The shoring was secured to keep it from protruding inboard of the side rails, which can interfere with the vertical movement of the shock mounts or engine cradle.  
  • The base only was attached to the trailer bed using tie-down points.

This is the third engine JAS Mexico has transported this year. It is the first time JAS Spain’s team has collaborated on a logistics job involving an engine. The engine left Mexico City on July 4 and arrived in Madrid on the afternoon of July 7. Delivery was made on July 8 per the customer’s request. “The engine was delivered timely, fulfilling our client’s tight deadline,” said Molinero.


El transporte de un motor de aeronave siempre conlleva una operativa muy delicada.Si además, hablamos de un transporte aéreo,  se añade una capa dedificultad que requiere de amplia experiencia ,fiablidad y compromiso con el sector aeroespacial.

Los equipos de JAS México y JAS España seasociaron recientemente para  organizar el transporte aéreo de un motor deavión desde la Ciudad de México hasta la Terminal del Aeropuerto de Madrid enEspaña. Las dimensiones del motor fueron de 450x250x255cm, con un peso total de 4.920 kg. El transportede un motor de este tamaño requiere de lacoordinación organización de recogidas y entregas dedicadas con personal especializado y  de una supervisión estricta de la operativa de trincado paragarantizar la llegada segura de la carga a su destino.

Ricardo Molinero, Directorde Operaciones de JAS España, indicó que los equipos de trabajo involucrados siguieron unprocedimiento estricto diseñado para evitar daños en los rodamientos del motor. "Son muy propensos a dañarsesi el trincado de la pieza  no se hacecorrectamente, ya que la cuna del motor debe,por un lado, estar firmemente asegurada a la plataforma del camión, peropermitiendo la sujeción, al mismo tiempo, elfuncionamiento del muellaje del motor, para que rodamientosno se vean afectados", dijo.

Para la protección durante el transportede los delicados rodamientos del motor, los equiposse adhieren al siguiente protocolo:

  • El motor se instaló longitudinalmente en el vehículo de transporte.
  • La base del soporte se colocó sobre la plataforma del camión, con las ruedas giratorias y las barras de remolque bloqueadas en una posición de almacenamiento.
  • Se colocaron las fijaciones del motor / soporte y del soporte / base y se verificó su seguridad.
  • El motor instalado en la base se adjuntó a la base de envío y se equipó con aislantes de choque.
  • Se verificó el espacio libre mínimo requerido de 4 pulgadas entre la base y la plataforma del camión. Si no se confirma el espacio libre, se deben colocar apuntalamientos de madera debajo de los rieles laterales de la base de transporte y clavarlos en la plataforma del remolque para evitar movimientos que puedan dañar el motor.
  • El apuntalamiento fue asegurado para evitar que sobresalga hacia el interior de los rieles laterales, lo que puede interferir con el movimiento vertical de los amortiguadores o el soporte del motor.
  • La base solo se fijó a la plataforma del remolque mediante puntos de amarre.

Este es el tercer motor que JAS Méxicotransporta este año, siendo la primera vez que elequipo de JAS España colabora en la operativa de transporte .  Elmotor embarcó desde la Ciudad de México el 4 de julio , llegando a Madrid en latarde del 7 de julio. La entregó se realizó el 8 de julio según solicitado por el cliente.  “El motor seentregó a tiempo, cumpliendo con el ajustado plazo deentrega nuestro cliente”, dijo Molinero.

JAS Helps Customers Navigate Screening Mandate

JAS Helps Customers Navigate Screening Mandate

The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) mandated that, by June 30th, 100% of international all-cargo aircraft flights receive the same level of security screening as cargo shipments on passenger fights.

JAS USA has been working closely with the TSA for several years to implement an in-house process for screening air cargo. As a result, JAS was one of the first freight forwarders approved to conduct trials in its major gateways using canine as a primary screening method. These canine teams can screen palletized cargo without the cargo being taken apart to screen, therefore cutting the screening process from hours to minutes.

Consequently, shipments move much faster through the supply chain with JAS taking control of the screening process and not having to rely on airlines and ground handlers who face some of the following challenges:

  • Screenings taking more time than initially expected.    
  • Shipments being left behind by carriers due to incomplete screenings.    
  • Some carriers only accepting pre-screened cargo.    
  • Full terminals and airport facilities resulting in rejected cargo.    
  • Lack of warehouse space for storing cargo as it goes through the screening process.

Over the past year, JAS USA has been working diligently to prepare for this new screening mandate and is excited to see those benefits passed on to its customers. JAS customers who need help navigating these new challenges should contact their local JAS office to learn more about how JAS keeps cargo moving.

JAS Xiamen Rises to the Challenge of Oversized Ocean Freight

JAS Worldwide offers innovative solutions to meet the needs of its logistics and transportation clients. Safe and secure shipping for ocean freight that exceeds standard-size shipping containers and cargo bins is one of our specialties.  

JAS Xiamen is pleased to announce its successful first arrangement of a break-bulk vessel. This ocean shipping method was necessary to accommodate a professional offshore technical services enterprise in China. The solution is one of the many ways JAS Worldwide rises to the challenge of today’s complicated logistics environment.  

The safe and secure passage was provided courtesy of a charted vessel outfitted to carry the 290,000-plus kilograms of 300mt Pedestal Mounted Cranes (PMC). The cargo departed from the Port of Zhangzhou, Fujian, with a destination of Qidong, Jiangsu.  

“It is a mark of great success for our team,” said Steven Su, JAS Xiamen branch manager. “They will use the experience gained from this project to develop further logistics businesses in related vertical markets.”
