​JAS Argentina has faced and overcome many challenges this year, as well as adding many new people into their Managing Team. The new additions have been more than beneficial and made great contributions to the team's growth. Gisela Alamán, the new Sales Team Manager, has helped improve and enlarge the client portfolio through her conscious and active work. Nicolás Rossi, the new Air Freight Manager, has brought with him all of his experience in the field, helping in make JAS' clients confident in the team's reliability. Francisco Mella joined the team as the new Ocean Freight Manager. His drive and innovative ideas have contributed immensely to the team's strength. Lastly, Silvia Santoro, who was previously with JAS, took on the challenge of managing the Operations Department. Her accurate work and diligent search to find solutions has brought the Managing Team closer to fulfilling and exceeding clients' expectations.

This year, JAS Argentina had the opportunity to host two events with their clients to promote the Asia Trade Lane in Argentina. They wanted to build stronger relationships with their clients and make sure they keep in mind what it is that makes JAS Argentina different. JAS Argentina is confident that their team will give their clients the support they need and help them see the value of JAS.

Back in March, JAS Argentina hosted a wine tasting with some of their air freight clients. Stefano Olmi, Vice President of Sales Asia, and Grego Vrhunc, Vice President of Air Freight Americas, were also present. It was a great time to create a closer bond with clients and help them see JAS Argentina's value.

In the beginning of May, JAS Argentina also held a cocktail party with some Ocean Freight clients. Lars Huebecker, Vice President of Ocean Freight Americas, and Gabriel Lopez, Procurement & Trade Lane Manager - South America, Ocean Freight & APAC, were also visiting at the time. It was a priceless opportunity to bring them closer and interact directly with the clients. The Managing Team was able to share their views and prospects for the near future. The team's goal was to help their clients create long-term plans and make informed decisions with first-hand knowledge of what is coming.

The team's aim is to work tirelessly and consistently to become the best. They trust that they are on the right track.

The newly appointed Managing Director, Patricio Pranzetti, shared a brief comment on what his experience has been so far: “So shortly after my journey with JAS had started, the New Year was bringing new and exciting challenges. Seven months have gone by; and at Jas Forwarding de Argentina, we've had the joy of experiencing great growth, consequence of our hard work and dedication.”

In your opinion, why is it important that more women pursue careers in the industry in the future?

The right time for women to pursue a career in logistics is now: With the growing importance of supply chain management, our sector is driving growth, innovations and sustainability transformation forward.

In honor of World Water Day, JAS Worldwide (JAS) and the Bruni Foundation today announced their partnership with charity: water to provide clean and safe water to those in need.

The theme of World Water Day 2023 is "Water for Life and Livelihoods," which helps highlight the importance of water for life, economic development, and the environment. The United Nations (UN) reports that 771 million people worldwide live without access to clean water, which is essential for the health and well-being of individuals and communities.

JAS, the Bruni Foundation, and charity: water are committed to making a difference in the lives of those affected by the global water crisis. The first phase of the partnership will deploy a $100,200 gift from the Bruni Foundation, which will fully fund two clean and safe water projects in India and Mozambique.

In Mozambique, this partnership will fund new community wells and handpumps across provinces in the Northeast of Mozambique and provide access to clean and safe water for more than 800 people. In India, the funds will support rainwater harvesting in the Thar Desert of Rajasthan, Western India, helping to provide clean and safe water access to over 250 people.

These initiatives will make a tangible impact in the lives of those in the local communities where the projects are being funded and are just the first step in the commitment to the cause.
