“One-Size-Fits-All” Not a Good Fit at JAS
October 12, 2021
JAS Hong Kong along with JAS Indonesia and JAS USA, Air Charter Solutions.
JAS Hong Kong along with JAS Indonesia and JAS USA, Air Charter Solutions.

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.

Fine Art Receives VIP Treatment
October 4, 2021
JAS Hong Kong transports Gabarron artwork
JAS Hong Kong transports Gabarron artwork

When a world-renowned artist needs safe, secure, and quick transport of 11 fiberglass art sculptures, JAS Spain is the logistics provider of choice. JAS Spain teamed up with JAS Hong Kong to ensure the shipment of delicate art from Spanish artist Cristobal Gabarron reached its destination on time. The pieces are a part of Gabarron's "Might of the Right" collection which is being shown at Fine Art Asia on October 8-11.

Gabarron is best known for his landmark series, "Mille Formes à la Conquête de l'Espace" (A Thousand Shapes to Conquer Space), first shown in Cannes in 2017. The 76-year-old artist has a passion for equality and fairness, which has served as a driving force in his creativity. French art critic and philosopher Pierre Restany once called Gabarron, “a great humanist of color.” His art has been featured in global movements of unity and cooperation, including his large-scale mural, History of the Olympics, which was inaugurated at the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona. Enlightened Universe, a steel globe surrounded by 70 colorful figures holding hands as a symbol of shared humanity was inaugurated by the secretary-general of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon, on October 25, 2015, in New York City’s Central Park. The piece was created to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the U.N.  

Since the show is an important event that only lasts a few days, the pieces needed to arrive on time. Gabarron provided the packaging and wooden crates he preferred using to ship his delicate pieces. JAS Spain’s team arranged for pick up and delivery as dedicated trucking and booked the shipment with an air-flying option. The artwork had only one transit airport up to its final destination to avoid additional manipulation of the pieces, which would have increased the risk for damage. Special cargo insurance designed for the artwork was provided by JAS Spain’s broker to cover the full value of the goods.  

The cargo was ready for pickup at Gabarron’s warehouse in Valladolid on September 23. JAS Spain’s team ordered expedited same-day delivery to Madrid to avoid manipulation risk. Gabarron’s artwork departed on September 25 and arrived in Hong Kong on September 27. Considering the shipping issues currently facing logistics companies serving the APAC region, the team was considerably pleased with the two-day transport.

JAS Indonesia transports 11 containers of unpolished travertine blocks

It pays to have strong relationships with manufacturers and importers in the marble, stone, and ceramic tile industry. Since 2017, JAS Indonesia has built a reputation as a premier logistics provider for this vertical market.  

The years of experience and professionalism exhibited by the JAS Indonesia team is unparalleled. Customers requiring the transport of ceramic tiles, marbles, stones, and machinery for processing marble, sanitary ware, bathroom furniture, and accessories know they can receive quality service from the JAS team.  

Years of networking and relationship-building within the industry have led to solid connections with suppliers in Italy, Izmir, and Xiamen. As an additional benefit, JAS Indonesia managing director Franceschino Menconi has lived in Carrara, Italy giving him a personal connection to many suppliers. He goes the extra mile to arrange meetings between buyers and suppliers to discuss how JAS Indonesia’s expertise in the industry can benefit them in the future. With offices in Carrara, it is easier for JAS Indonesia to build buyer and supplier trust.  

Recently, the JAS Indonesia team moved 11 containers of unpolished travertine blocks and 4 containers of unpolished marble slabs for a customer. As part of its services, the JAS team:

  • Picks up blocks directly from quarries using heavy equipment with a capacity of up to 30 tons or via drop-deck trucks with a capacity of up to 60 tons.  
  • Handles blocks in the depots using specialized equipment that loads them into shipping containers.  
  • Sends shipping containers to appropriate ports for transport.  

Customers can rely on JAS Indonesia to provide end-to-end logistics services for their ceramic tiles, marbles, and stones that protect the products at all stages.
