Happy International Customs Day from JAS China

Happy International Customs Day from all of us at JAS Worldwide! As we recognize International Customs Day, we would like to thank our JAS China Logistics team for all that they have done this past year to help customers navigate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) regulations and become Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) authorized.

Since the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020, countries worldwide saw an increased demand for PPE. With China being the world's largest PPE manufacturer, many customers needed to know how to navigate PPE export regulations from China.

The JAS China Logistics team understood these concerns and helped customers navigate the regulations by preparing a PPE Export-related Operational Manual. This covered the detailed requirements related to suppliers' qualifications, certifications, packaging, and cargo description based on China's official regulations. These requirements changed day-by-day when the demand initially emerged in the market. Therefore, the JAS China Logistics Team closely monitored the latest changes and created a total of 8 versions of the Operational Manual for customers between March and May 2020. This ensured the latest updates were provided to customers so that they would have access to the most up-to-date information.

Throughout this time, JAS managed customs declaration documents for customers to ensure shipments reached their destinations on time. In addition, the JAS China Logistics Team provided a critical service for customers dealing with PPE export cargo by ensuring all documents were in order, as any mistake in customs declaration documents could result in delays of customs clearance, cargo space booking, and cargo departure. The JAS China Logistics Team consistently provided this important document-checking service before customs declaration, and this extra measure helped customers avoid any potential cargo delays.

The PPE export regulations provided a list of approved PPE suppliers, often called a 'white list.' Any suppliers outside the 'white list' cannot export PPE overseas. Based on our overseas customers' requirements, the JAS China Logistics Team went the extra mile by verifying the PPE supplier's qualifications, documents, and packaging to ensure all regulations were met and there were no delays in the export process.

While guiding customers through the complex PPE export requirements, the JAS China team became certified as an Authorized Economic Operator – AEO. The certificate covers all of Mainland China, and its accreditation reflects the high level of security and legality in our trade compliance. It is recognized globally as a mark of quality, strengthening JAS' capability to offer a full range of premium Value-Added Services to our clients in China.

This International Customs Day, we are thankful for all of the ways that the JAS China team has gone above and beyond in guiding our customers through the customs process. Our people truly do make the difference!

JAS China meets the rapid demand for pharma

Since the pandemic began, the pharmaceutical industry has experienced rapid growth. As the need for quality pharmaceuticals to treat diseases of all kinds continues to increase, logistics services and solutions also must keep up with the rapid pace. According to market data, China’s temperature-controlled expert increased 16 percent on a year-over-year basis between January and July 2021.  

In partnership with one of the leading developing, manufacturing, and repair service companies for air cargo equipment, JAS China has positioned itself to serve pharma’s expanding needs through the launch of a new successful logistic project managing airfreight temperature-controlled containers in Beijing. Thanks to the recent service expansion, JAS China can confidently provide full domestic services. Customers can request warehousing, trucking and container management, and air freight services to cover the entire pharmaceutical supply chain to benefit global consumers.  

JAS China’s pharmaceutical logistics team received training on temperature-controlled container transport with its partner company. The collaboration provides an excellent opportunity for JAS China’s team to share the new service with potential pharmaceutical customers in need, adding extra value to its customers in the future.  

In addition to the official training from its new partner, JAS China’s staff completed additional training on temperature-controlled cargo to fortify its understanding of the general process involved with transporting temperature-controlled containers. JAS China’s leadership plans to continue professional development to help the team stay abreast of industry trends for temperature-controlled container logistics.  

Pharmaceutical companies interested in learning how JAS China can meet their rapid growth needs can reach out to the team today for more information.

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.
