​JAS Motorsport Logistics in collaboration with JAS South Africa were nominated as lead logistics providers for the Kyalami 9 Hour event held as part of the Intercontinental GT Series which visited our shores in November 2019. Our teams were revved up to be involved in this iconic event, which last took place at Kyalami in 1982, and surely will once again become a key event in the South African Motorsport calendar.

A few key statistics on what JAS was tasked to handle for the event:

  • A total of 41 containers carrying race cars, spares and timing equipment forwarded via ocean freight by JAS from various countries to South Africa, entering through various ports. Then exported again onward to different countries for the next events in the series.
  • Airfreight import & export of complete race cars, spares, accessories and equipment from and to various parts of the globe leading up to and after the event.
  • Obtaining embargo release from the customs authorities so that all containers would be inspected in one location, which would be the lay down area managed by JAS in the Kyalami track precinct. This for both imports, as well as export inspections.
  • Successfully managing a mix of customs requirements, some teams shipping under ATA Carnet, others with commercial invoices, for which provisional payments had to be made as well as acquitted with customs, all done in record time.
  • On site operations included 4 x crane trucks and multiple tridem axle truck tractor combinations to move a total of 54 containers from the lay down area to various points around the pit lane and behind the main building for teams to be present and unload their containers.
  • All containers were moved, placed, unpacked and operations set up completed within 2 days, and the same applied for loading out again.
  • Senior representatives from JAS Motorsport Logistics were on site for the full duration of the lead up to, as well as during and strike down of the event to provide support services from a logistics perspective to the teams as well as for the organizers.

The entire event went off smoothly, something JAS is extremely proud of.  People continue to make the difference.

All aspects of 2020 have undoubtedly been different and challenging. Placing an emphasis on the health of those around us became a primary focus and continues to be so, causing changes to traditions and disruptions to annual plans in order to protect those we care about.

At JAS, People have always made the difference and continue to do so. That is why in 2020 JAS made sure to take every precaution to keep our team and our customers safe, while still delivering good cheer. As we are living and learning to navigate this new era; JAS McAllen knew they had to maintain a safe social distance from the recipients of the annual JAS Calendar, but they still wanted to leave customers with a sense of how grateful JAS is to have them be with us for another year. Therefore JAS McAllen decided to make a caravan to deliver calendars in the parking lots of customers where possible.

There will be time to share again, meanwhile we continue to do business at a safe social distance and create new excitement in doing so.

Happy New Year 2021 from the JAS McAllen Team.
