JAS offices across the world recently had an opportunity to come together to help a customer with an oversized and time-sensitive shipment. In this case, the customer, an automotive manufacturer, needed production line machinery moved from Germany to Texas, United States.
The shipment included 11 pieces which weighed 5.1 tons and measured over 30 CBM. Although some pieces were oversized, the team was able to create a tailor-made solution using JAS's Blue World Atlantic services.
The JAS MFE (Southwest) Team and our Trade Lane Manager, joined forces with colleagues in Germany to orchestrate this time-sensitive project.
JAS Bad Waldsee, the origin office, successfully picked up the cargo on July 26 in Dornstadt, Germany. This facility does not allow closed containers to be loaded as it does not have dock doors. Therefore, an open truck was used to transfer the cargo to the Frankfurt Airport (FRA). There the Gateway Team was prepared to receive the cargo, which departed on July 28 via the JAS Blue World Atlantic Air Charter Program. The shipment arrived the next day in Chicago, Illinois (ORD), where the United States Gateway Team coordinated with the JAS McAllen Branch (Texas, United States) to receive the shipment over the weekend. This close collaboration made it possible for the needed equipment to arrive at the end customer's facility in Texas on August 1, a day earlier than required.
Alfonso Ortiz, Business Development Manager, said of the shipment, "We are happy to have been able to find a solution for our customer and to have safely and successfully delivered the cargo ahead of schedule."
Our people really do make the difference!
JAS now has access to additional transportation solutions throughout Europe, including:
With one team managing all transportation solutions in Europe, customers have access to a single point of contact that can manage your flow of goods regardless of transportation method. This opens up a range of alternatives on the same trade lane and allows for tailor-made solutions that best fit your needs.
For instance, for those with sustainability as a top priority, your single point of contact might suggest a shortsea or intermodal solution as a default method of transportation while still having the option of road transport if needed.
Perhaps, you have heavy cargo to be transported over long distances. In this case, a shortsea solution might be the most cost-effective and sustainable alternative. However, road transportation is likely the most flexible alternative if time is critical and planning is complex.
Whatever your needs, our team members are equipped to help customers create an even smarter supply chain.
