Vibrant Panama City, Panama was the scene for JAS Americas’ first annual meeting held April, 2017.  Managing Directors for all countries (LATAM, North America, Canada, Mexico, SAM) were in attendance to collaborate and create further dialogue among Americas countries, as well as, with other JAS organizations.  Lines of communication, sales challenges, successes, and information were exchanged between Americas' teams (including executives representing air & ocean products, along with Human Resources) and regional leaders from APAC (Tomas Sonntag), Italy (Stefano Castellazzi), and EMEA (Stefan Sigg).  We were privileged to hear from, JAS Agent, Intermax (Mauricio Barrientos) and Power Business Intelligence SME, Scott Lunchbill, who lent expertise to assist all countries both technically and relationally, as they expand into the future.

Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT) were discussed in detail by individual countries.  Information was exchanged which opened dialogue and created future opportunities for areas across the world to work together, while creating further collaboration among those in attendance.  Attendees gained new technical system information which provides up-to-the moment detailed statistics related to sales, billing, and process completion – data which offers customers many more reasons to choose JAS for solving their logistics needs and challenges.

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.
