WHO WE ARE

The JAS Natural Stone Division specializes in the support of the ornamental stone sector. We are dedicated to the management of international carriage by air, sea, and multi-modal.

Marble, quartz, granite, and other quarried material are transported as one solid piece. For this reason, special equipment must be utilized to ensure the slabs don’t crack. Transporting this type of material is difficult because it is notorious for its delicate nature. Carrying the slab incorrectly can result in catastrophic damage.

JAS has offices strategically positioned throughout the world set up to expertly handle the stone commodity.

As the biggest stone consumer in the world, with total consumption of over $30 billion, the US market is of the highest importance to many stone processing factories all over the world, including those in Brazil, Italy, Spain, India, China, Turkey, Greece, Vietnam, and Indonesia.

The JAS Natural Stone Division is staffed with experts who are able to skillfully leverage these global sources of supply.

JAS Brazil Helps Coordinate Ex-Works Import

Recently, JAS Brazil coordinated the Ex Works (EXW) import of machinery which was used to expand a plastics line.

The movement of this type of load is a complex activity, due to the many moving parts.

As a provider of global logistics solutions, the team in Brazil, in coordination with JAS USA, was able to guide the customer through the challenges of this type of shipment. Transporting this load involved advising the exporter, maintaining “on-time” communication between team members in the USA and Brazil, and monitoring the entire operation from start to finish.

A Tailor-Made Solution

In order to successfully deliver the load from New York, USA to Paranagua, Brazil the team chose to ship the machinery in a flat rack container. This allowed for the safe transport as flat racks are designed to move loads which are large and heavy all while providing flexible shipping options.

With a total transit time of 41 days, the load safely and successfully arrived at its destination within the established deadline.

A global team of logistics professionals

When it comes to complex transports, our team members are in their element and ready to provide best-in-class service no matter what is being shipped. To best serve customers all across the globe scale, JAS has branches in more than worldwide working hand in hand. It was this close collaboration between the team members that ensured a safe, successful, and timely delivery to the customers total satisfaction.
