​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.”

As a part of the larger move towards more sustainable wine production, Greencarrier Freight Services offers short sea shipping services as an innovative transportation alternative to road freight.

Wine has been produced in the Iberian Peninsula for many centuries.

Throughout Portugal, there are fourteen Delimited Wine Regions. Due to unique geography of the area, a variety of quality wines suchas sparkling wines, white wines, red wines, rosé wines, and different kinds of vinegar can be found.

In 2015, Portugal’s Alentejo Region launched its award winning “Alentejo Wine Sustainability Program” (PSVA) in the region’s vineyards, in part, to promote more sustainable wine production environment.

As part of this move towards more sustainable wine production, Greencarrier Freight Services offers short sea shipping services as an innovative transportation alternative to road freight.

The service operates from Porto in Portugal to the Nordic region. Cargo for the Nordic market is consolidated from all over Spain and Portugal, where it is then shipped to Gothenburg for further distribution in the Nordics.

“This sustainable service option is a way for shippers to reduce direct emissions but also mitigate congested roads and shortage of drivers. It is our ambition to make it simple for our clients to switch to sustainable alternatives without having to recreate their entire supply chain, says Ari Malvela, Head of Road Freight.

Less than container load (LCL) allows you to ship smaller quantities more frequently. With weekly departures and fast transit times it is easier than ever to build supply chains that are both efficient and sustainable.

“Can we afford not to become more sustainable? This logistics solution is part of our initiative “Green Solutions” and reduces your environmental footprint up to 80% when compared to using road freight. One feeder vessel carries the equivalent of 500 truckloads, reducing the pressure on congested roads as well as the environment,” says Stefan Larsen, Ocean Freight Manager.
