JAS recently attended the 2017 Coverings Stone Fair, which took place at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida from April 4th to April 7th.

The Coverings Stone Fair is the largest event in the vertical sector of stone, granite, marble, ardosias, quartzite, and travertine in North America. The event housed 900+ Exhibitors and 20 thousand visitors in an area of 350,000 square feet. The international exhibitors visit from Brazil, India, Italy, China, Egypt, Turkey, Israel, Argentina, and Spain.

The outcome of the event was a success. The speed of our growth has caused some disturbance between our competitors, which goes to show we are being recognized as a powerful company in this vertical. Most importantly,    JAS continues to keep our marketing share in this vertical in order to prove to our customers and our competitors that JAS is in this vertical for the long term.

The JAS exhibit was located in a prime location, just in front of the the Arbirochas Pavilion. This location provided an increased volume of clients who passed the JAS booth. As a result of JAS' rapid development in 2016, the market acknowledgement and support from our long term partnerships with manufactuers, other suppliers, and consignees, the investment in this exhibit provided a positive number of prospective visitors and clients exceeding 75 companies to come to the JAS exhibit.

Going forward, JAS is looking to continue growth within the Ornamental Stone industry and attend more Coverings Stone Fairs in the future.

JAS is internationally recognized by our customers as a leader in customer service. While JAS leverages some of the most advanced technological solutions in the forwarding and logistics industry, we continuously make sure that the technology is handled by highly skilled and conscientious people dedicated to our customer base.

The current pandemic has caused shipping disruptions across the globe.  

With a 70% reduction in passenger flights since February 2020, the overall global air freight capacity is down about 25% from this time last year.  Limited space on limited flights means frequent delays and interruptions of supply chains globally.

With the unpredictable availability of cargo space, how do we regain control of air freight to ensure service in such a critical time?  

The traditional air freight model is no longer a realistic option, instead Flight Operations are the key for maintaining a reliable and uninterrupted supply chain by providing door-to-door control of the shipping process. With a Flight Operation, every step of the process - from the time the cargo is picked up to its final delivery - is meticulously managed by the service provider.  

Shipments are processed through facilities controlled by the service provider, both at origin and destination. This system avoids the typical congestion at airport hubs, reduces overall transit time, and increases control.

The aircraft themselves offer unmatched flexibility to meet all cargo needs. Freighters have the capability to move normal and specialized cargo such as dangerous goods, oversized pieces, and shipments requiring refrigeration such as perishable and pharma.  

Lastly, a prime network of delivery options carries the cargo to its ultimate destination.

In early August JAS introduced BLUE WORLD ATLANTIC, a weekend roundtrip Flight Operation between Chicago and Frankfurt, utilizing B 747 – 400 F Nose-Load for optimum loading capabilities. The BLUE WORLD ATLANTIC prime schedule is the best solution for supporting customers in the transatlantic air freight corridor!

If your business could benefit from a regular flight operation in the transatlantic corridor contact a local JAS representative for more information.
