JAS Argentina Promotes Asia Trade Lane

This year, JAS Argentina had the opportunity to host two events with clients to promote the Asia Trade lane in Argentina. During these events, JAS Argentina was able to showcase that our People Make the Difference, and that is what makes JAS different.  JAS Argentina has a very solid team to give clients the support they need, and they are effective at helping them to see value.

Back in March, JAS Argentina hosted a Wine Tasting with some Air Freight clients. Stefano Olmi – Vice President Sales Asia Pacific, and Gregor Vrhunc – Vice President Air Freight Americas, were traveling in Argentina and were able to interact with these clients as well.  This created a great opportunity in a relaxed atmosphere to help these clients see the value JAS can bring to them.

In addition to the above event, at the beginning of May, JAS Argentina held a cocktail event with some Ocean Freight clients.  Lars Huebecker, Vice President Ocean Freight – Americas, and Gabriel Lopez, Procurement & Trade Lane Manager – South America & Ocean Freight, APAC, were visiting in Argentina also.  It was a priceless opportunity to bring them closer and have them interact directly with clients. Being able to share views and prospects for the near future and what to expect going forward.  The goal was to help clients create long-term plans and make informed decisions with first-hand knowledge of what is coming.

Attendance and participation was great at both events.  Clients found it extremely useful and appreciated the time and opportunity given.

The JAS commitment to equality for women throughout our organization has never been stronger. From the warehouse teams to the C-Suite, JAS women truly make the difference. This year, JAS continues to recognize the instrumental value of women’s contributions not only within the company but of its many women-owned and managed customers around the globe. We celebrate the theme of this year’s International Women’s Day, Choose To Challenge as JAS women continue to make the difference.

JAS is dedicated to our customers, and often has the opportunity to help clients overcome challenges when immediate shipments are needed. On Monday, the 22nd of February, a large automotive customer requested that JAS UK move an urgent air freight shipment from China to the UK.

As of Monday afternoon, this shipment was in a free trade zone warehouse (FTZ) in Wuxi, China, awaiting outbound bonded clearance.  JAS Shanghai received the shipment at the airport warehouse at 2130 Monday. The flight left Tuesday with an ETA of 1600 at Heathrow Airport (LHR). JAS delivered the needed materials to the customer, located approximately 150 miles outside of Heathrow Airport (LHR), at 2330 on Tuesday.

The customer avoided a line stop in production due to the efficient delivery of the critical shipment and prevented the extra costs associated with line stoppage. Thank you, JAS UK, for your commitment to our customers! At JAS, our people really do make the difference!
