Mr. Biagio Bruni attends AGORA 2021 and discusses how business has evolved since the pandemic and JAS' response

The rapidly evolving pandemic, combined with the continued poor performance of carriers aggravated by growing demand for goods, has highlighted how fragile supply chains are due to globalization and delocalization. In fact, it has brought to the fore the phenomena of Reshoring/Nearshoring. This has accelerated the development of E-Commerce in Italy and has increased the importance of the "Made in Italy"  brand and the positioning of Italy within the global supply chain.

JAS is always looking ahead to prepare for market changes and ways to serve our customers better. As a part of these efforts, JAS recently completed the acquisition of Tigers. With its long-standing expertise in both the Contract Logistics and E-Commerce sectors combined with its sophisticated IT systems, JAS will be able to provide logistical support and communicate digitally with our customers. In addition, these new systems will allow JAS to collaborate with customers to coordinate transit times and transport modes which will help customers' reduce CO2 emissions and the overall environmental impact.

With this objective, JAS has increased its usage of FCL rail service between China and Italy, transporting individual units or organizing block trains reserved entirely for JAS. Eco-sustainable, with low environmental impact, the service offers a competitive transit time when compared with current maritime services. Furthermore, as a part of the efforts to help customers reduce their CO2 emissions, JAS has increased the use of FCL rail services on the CHINA-ITALY section, transporting individual units or coordinating block trains entirely reserved for JAS. Eco-sustainable, with low environmental impact, the service currently offers a competitive transit time compared to current maritime services.

In further news, to better serve our customer's needs in this rapidly changing environment, on July 14, 2021, JAS Italy completed the acquisition of the company Bossi & C. Transiti S.p.A.. Specializing in the maritime field and headquartered in Genoa, branches will operate out of Verona and Vercelli while maintaining a commercial/operational office in Hong Kong.

Biagio Bruni parteciperà al forum Confetra AGORA' 2021 e discuterà dell'impatto della pandemia sul nostro business e come JAS ha reagito in questo nuovo scenario

L’esplosione della pandemia e il perdurare delle scarse performance dei

vettori aggravate da continui rincari, ha evidenziato quanto può essere fragile la globalizzazione e la rincorsa alla delocalizzazione della Supply Chain.

Infatti questa situazione ha riportato alla ribalta i fenomeni del Reshoring/Near-Shoring, accelerando anche in Italia lo sviluppo

dell’E-Commerce, ma anche aumentando l’importanza del prodotto e del

Brand «Made in Italy», posizionando l’Italia «nelle catene globali del valore». (Fonte :  report di Alsea in collaborazione con Osservatorio Export Digitale del Politecnico di Milano).

Sempre con spirito lungimirante e cercando d’interpretare in anticipo le necessità dettate dai cambiamenti del mercato, JAS ha risposto con la recente acquisizione di TIGERS, mirando ad una espansione nei settori del Contract Logistics e dell’ E-Commerce, grazie ai quali sarà in grado di fornire supporto logistico, coadiuvato da sofisticati sistemi informatici per comunicare digitalmente con tutti i clienti che collaborano con JAS e armonizzando i tempi di transito con una ridotta immissione di CO2, selezionando modalità di trasporto a ridotto impatto ambientale.

Con tale obiettivo, JAS ha sviluppato ed incrementato sulla tratta CINA-ITALIA l’utilizzo dell’efficace servizio su ferro ed utilizzando le polizze Blue World Line, garantiamo servizi Groupage e servizi FCL con elevati standard di servizio. Ecosostenibile, con bassissimo impatto ambientale, il servizio offre ad oggi un Transit Time molto competitivo rispetto gli attuali servizi marittimi.

In data 14 luglio 2021, JAS Italia ha completato l’acquisizione della società Bossi & C. Transiti S.p.A. specializzata nel campo marittimo, con sede a Genova e filiali a Verona, Vercelli, oltre che un ufficio commerciale/operativo ad Hong Kong.

Short sea shipping provides great environmental, social, and economic advantages and plays a key role in sustainable shipping.

Over time, the volume of goods being transported on European roads has steadily increased, leading to congested roads, delays, and unnecessary costs. As shippers look to avoid these issues, many are considering short sea shipping as a viable solution.

What is short sea shipping?

Short sea shipping is essentially container movement within Europe, but with a short time on the sea. Short sea shipping is an excellent alternative to road freight. However, it is not a matter of dismantling road transport. It is about environmentally smart alternatives that improve existing supply chains.

What are the advantages of short sea shipping?

  • Increased Reliability: One significant benefit of short sea shipping is that shippers receive goods in a reliable, consistent, and timely manner. Unlike road transport, which is prone to delays and irregular logistics flow due to congestion, short sea shipping allows for scheduled departures and arrivals.
  • A Sustainable Choice: Short sea shipping provides great environmental, social, and economic advantages and plays a vital role in sustainable shipping. Moving a significant volume of goods from road freight to short sea will positively impact road congestion, road safety, and noise levels. One feeder vessel carries the equivalent of 500 truckloads. Compared to using trucks only, this solution provides increased both in terms of cost and CO2 emissions.
  • Buy What You Need: The size of a container often determines the quantity purchased, but it is important to buy and transport only what is needed. A short sea solution enables shippers to avoid producing excess merchandise with no demand and risks being destroyed. Short sea shipping affords the opportunity to book smaller quantities resulting in fewer containers being utilized.
  • Cost-Efficient Alternative: Sea freight rates are considerably lower than road freight rates, especially when transporting larger freight volumes and heavier cargo. Transitioning from road freight to short sea allows shippers to circumvent the high freight rates associated with road transport. In the long term, moving large volumes to short sea and away from the roads of Europe would help restore the capacity imbalance in road freight and eventually remove lack-of-capacity surcharges.

JAS Worldwide EMEA is pleased to announce the appointment of Jordy Romeijn to the position of  EMEA Pharma & Healthcare Customer Experience Director as of 09 May 2022. Working in this pivotal role from his home base in the Netherlands, together with the region’s Pharma & Healthcare teams Jordy will champion customer experience and operational excellence for the region.

After guiding them through significant growth, in 2017 Jordy relocated to the USA to manage the JAS Chicago branch, which at the time was “fairly small” in the JAS organization.

Of his appointment, Jordy says: “During my years working with JAS I have witnessed the company continuously grow and develop itself – JAS today is vastly different then JAS 16 years ago. My long tenure and experience on both sides of the Atlantic will allow me to contribute toward growing the Pharma & Healthcare vertical, and I am truly looking forward to this exciting new opportunity.”
