January 18, 2017
All for one logo

The JAS Automotive team is made up of Automotive industry professionals who have worked throughout the industry ranging from Tier 1 to OEMs. With over 50 years of collective automotive experience, the team has used the past as a foundation for the JAS Automotive IV.

Recalling his past days with Ford Motor Company, Vice President Conway Jeffress has ensured that the sense of Corporate Responsibility and community service resonates through the JAS Automotive team. “In order to be a strategic partner with our customers we need to support their philanthropic efforts, both with our financial and human resources.” As such the JAS Automotive team has participated in a number community service projects over the past year.

Below find a few examples of these projects.

Gilda’s Club: Gilda’s Club is a place where men, women and children whose lives have been touched by cancer, as well as their families and friends, can feel they are part of a welcoming community of support. JAS Automotive participated as a Sponsor for “Gilda’s Big Night Out” on May 12, 2016. This key event raised over $177k for this amazing organization. This was in support of JAS' global customer Cooper Standard. The Cooper Standard Foundation strengthens the communities in which Cooper Standard employees work and live through the passionate support of children's charities, education, health and wellness, and community revitalization.

Gift of Giving: Gift of Giving is a non-profit organization with the mission to support Avondale, Michigan youth by providing clothing and nutrition for those in need, entrepreneurial experiences to mentor future leaders & classroom enrichment programs to inspire people to go beyond.

Automotive Director, Danette Beltink led the JAS Automotive team in supporting the Gift of Giving holiday fund drive. Working with the Gift of Giving Board of Director, Jeff Lau, JAS was able to contribute $1000 to the organization. In addition to being a Board Member, Jeff Lau is also the COO of Argus Logistics, a Key customer of the JAS Automotive Vertical.

Automotive Golf Classic: Since its inception in 1980, the Automotive Golf Classic(AGC) has grown and flourished to become Michigan’s premier golf event. This highly anticipated annual event, which has raised more than $7 million to date, draws the best and the brightest among leading automotive industry executives who put aside their normally competitive natures to raise funds for the more than 14,000 youth served annually by Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeastern Michigan. The JAS Automotive team in-kind supported the event with on-site volunteers. JAS Automotive VP Conway Jeffress and Key Account Manager Matthew Forster were both hospitality volunteers greeting and photographing participants from over 60 automotive companies and suppliers.

Given the close nature of the Automotive industry, there is a core belief that Customers work with Partners who support their causes. As such, JAS Automotive leads the way in relationship driven partnerships that are long lasting and mutually beneficial.

Thanks to JAS Corporate Leadership for supporting the activities of the JAS Automotive Vertical strategy!

JAS Italy has been active in the alcoholic beverages industry for decades and has demonstrated its ability to deliver superior logistic solutions to exporters and importers during that time.

Overseas market specialists, together with the JAS Florence Wine & Spirits team, along with colleagues deployed at JAS offices in wine producing regions provide dedicated competitive services to suit customers’ demands in Italy and various continents.

JAS offers state of the art airfreight services for wine, dry & reefer buyers consolidations at optimized costs, temperature management expertise, insulation services for air and sea consignments, and JAS' own LCL/LCL containers to selected destinations.

JAS Italy together with destination offices colleagues ensure that the Italian flag for Wine & Spirits services solutions is raised on selected markets.

In today’s environment, shippers are faced with numerous challenges, from the immediate need to replenish drastically reduced inventory levels to budgeting logistics costs in a highly unpredictable environment. Blank sailings, carrier solvency, and steadily building port congestion is resulting in increased supply chain risk and lead time fluctuations. Global air cargo capacity has been reduced by over 25% making access to space more constrained due to overall demand and increased dwell time due to testing and customs inspections of PPE goods.

JAS is working closely with our customers to offer solutions that balance planning with responsiveness and agility, while working to provide service options that mitigate the increased costs and risks that exist with current market conditions.

Our Flight Operations solutions address the immediate and urgent needs of our customers. We have scheduled weekly flights from the following areas:

China to the USA with connections to Latin America

Europe to the USA with connections to Latin America

USA to Europe

China to Europe

Additional flights will be added as needed.

JAS SEA-AIR services provide an alternative solution to customers requiring shorter lead times than traditional ocean freight while providing a lower cost option to air freight. We currently offer hubs in Singapore and Korea that connect Asia with the rest of the world.

​For traditional ocean FCL and LCL services, our ocean team aligns our carrier allocations and schedules with our customers’ forecasts. Services such as container and order management offer additional value to our standard ocean freight services.

​While our current priority is to work with your immediate needs, we do not want to lose sight of the need for long-term planning strategies so please contact us at info@jas.com or reach out to your local JAS representative for more information.
