Happy International Customs Day 2021 from JAS USA

Happy International Customs Day! We at JAS are thankful for our customs compliance team, and its adaptability as regulations have changed throughout the pandemic. Despite these constant changes and the new challenges that came with COVID-19, the implementation of USMCA, and the China 301 exclusions, the team has continued to stay up-to-date as they have navigated customers through the ever-changing regulations.  

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been an increased focus on importing and exporting items such as PPE, thermometers, and sanitizers. Our customs compliance team quickly gathered information about these items and it was able to help customers import large volumes of these goods under the updated FDA guidelines required under the Emergency Use Authorization. To better guide our clients through these changes, the team hosted a well-attended webinar focusing on these requirements.

Seeing the positive response to the previous webinar, a few months later, JAS hosted another popular webinar on USMCA which replaced NAFTA. This webinar provided training and discussed key points about the new requirements of USMCA.

Additionally, at least ten clients received individualized training on various topics from USMCA to how to classify their goods. JAS issued a record number of client advisories this past year to assure that our clients were up-to-date on the latest changes to the regulatory environment. To help clients avoid paying additional duties on imports to the USA, we advised them about the 301 China Exclusions.  

We are thankful for our customs compliance team's efforts in making sure our clients have the latest information. Together we are making a difference!

JAS Projects is excited to start the new year with a successful delivery of 8,800 FRT incl. heavy lifts, up to 300 metric tons, to Singapore. On behalf of a valued customer, a customized transportation solution was developed by JAS Projects Germany in collaboration with the JAS Projects' teams in Singapore, Shanghai, and Seoul. Utilizing the vast JAS network and using the collaboration and expert teamwork that JAS is known for to make sure our customers are successful.  

JAS  is proud to be the 1st logistics service provider operating via the newly built Chawan jetty in Jurong Port Singapore. The complete scope involved in the ocean freight shipments from four different loading ports, including barging and roll off in Singapore, is complicated and involved intricate teamwork, planning, and an advanced understanding of freight forwarding.

JAS Projects was more than happy to meet and exceed those requirements. With shipping becoming more complicated everyday, having a team of experts on your side makes all the difference, and at JAS People Make the Difference.

With a 56% reduction in passenger flights since this time last year, the overall global air freight capacity is down about 13% from this time last year.   

Limited space on remaining 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, alternative approaches are the key to maintaining a reliable and uninterrupted supply chain by providing door-to-door control of the shipping process.  It is crucial that every step of the process - from the time the cargo is picked up to its final delivery - is meticulously managed by the service provider with shipments processed through facilities controlled by the service provider, both at origin and destination, avoiding the typical congestion at airport hubs, reducing overall transit time, and increasing control.  

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

In late 2020 JAS introduced BLUE WORLD PACIFIC, weekly flights between Shanghai and Chicago and a second route from Hong Kong to Los Angeles. The BLUE WORLD PACIFIC prime schedule is the best solution for supporting customers in the Asia – North America air freight corridor!  

If your business could benefit from a regular service in the Transpacific corridor contact a local JAS representative for more information.

JAS takes pride in always making the difference for our customers. Therefore, when an industrial partner contacted JAS with the need to make an urgent shipment of 9 tons of sensitive and critical cargo from the Netherlands to South Africa, the teams in Saudi Arabia and South Africa created a plan.

Since the cargo required special packaging to ensure that it was safely transported safely, the team in the Netherlands found a way to complete the packaging at shipper premises thanks to the collaboration between Shipper and Consignee on the process and documentation. At the same time, the team worked to book and confirm the arrangements with the airline.  

Thanks to the teams' collaboration, JAS successfully packaged and moved the cargo to the customer's complete satisfaction. Congratulations, JAS Saudi Arabia and JAS Netherlands!
