The JAS Global HR Meeting, hosted by Aline Quirino, Vice President - Global Human Resources, took place May 27-31, 2019 at the JAS Worldwide Headquarters located in Atlanta, GA, USA. The meeting brought together the global HR heads from Asia Pacific (APAC), Europe, Africa & the Middle East (EMEA), and Latin America (LATAM) , along with HR heads from Italy and the United States.  With special JAS guests Tahira Fumo - Global CFO, Nan King - Counsel, Office of the General Counsel, Stefano Redditi - Executive Vice President Sales & Marketing, Linda Tallent - Executive Vice President IT, and Peter Hoegger - Vice President of Global Process Compliance.

The meeting centered around one main concept, to align individual goals with the JAS corporate strategy while promoting an atmosphere of ongoing communication between leaders and employees, and therefore allowing JAS to better care for customers. Spanning multiple topics, including an improved performance evaluation program, refined employee on-boarding and training, talent management and growth strategies, reviewing the Global HR mission, vision and value statements, discussing the biggest challenges faced in 2018, and evaluating what can be done better in 2019. Several other topics were discussed and evaluated to aid in engagement with company priorities and strategies, ensuring that Global HR has the key processes in place to enable the entire JAS team to be engaged and function at the highest possible standards.

JAS Global HR is making efforts to create an interactive environment that lends itself to open and continuously flowing feedback between employees and leaders.  This type of environment allows for the alignment of company goals at the individual level by clearly communicating the strategic business objectives across the entire company. Having clearly defined goals allows employees to better serve clients and achieve those goals. JAS Global HR also seeks to improve talent management and therefore employee life cycles within the company, giving customers longer relationships with familiar and loyal faces as well as strengthening the bond between company and employee. Having clearly defined goals, in addition to identifying, attracting, & retaining key talents within the company allow JAS to operate on a higher level, giving our customers the best experience possible, every-time.

At JAS people make the difference, and JAS Global HR are the supportive connectors to aid them!

JAS is internationally recognized by our customers as a leader in customer service. While JAS leverages some of the most advanced technological solutions in the forwarding and logistics industry, we continuously make sure that the technology is handled by highly skilled and conscientious people dedicated to our customer base.

The current pandemic has caused shipping disruptions across the globe.  

With a 70% reduction in passenger flights since February 2020, the overall global air freight capacity is down about 25% from this time last year.  Limited space on limited flights means frequent delays and interruptions of supply chains globally.

With the unpredictable availability of cargo space, how do we regain control of air freight to ensure service in such a critical time?  

The traditional air freight model is no longer a realistic option, instead Flight Operations are the key for maintaining a reliable and uninterrupted supply chain by providing door-to-door control of the shipping process. With a Flight Operation, every step of the process - from the time the cargo is picked up to its final delivery - is meticulously managed by the service provider.  

Shipments are processed through facilities controlled by the service provider, both at origin and destination. This system avoids the typical congestion at airport hubs, reduces overall transit time, and increases control.

The aircraft themselves offer unmatched flexibility to meet all cargo needs. Freighters have the capability to move normal and specialized cargo such as dangerous goods, oversized pieces, and shipments requiring refrigeration such as perishable and pharma.  

Lastly, a prime network of delivery options carries the cargo to its ultimate destination.

In early August JAS introduced BLUE WORLD ATLANTIC, a weekend roundtrip Flight Operation between Chicago and Frankfurt, utilizing B 747 – 400 F Nose-Load for optimum loading capabilities. The BLUE WORLD ATLANTIC prime schedule is the best solution for supporting customers in the transatlantic air freight corridor!

If your business could benefit from a regular flight operation in the transatlantic corridor contact a local JAS representative for more information.
