JAS Brazil Creates Custom Airfreight Solution

Putting the gears in motion to solve challenging freight problems

There is no such thing as mission impossible for JAS Brazil. Recently tasked with moving 105 tons of raw materials to Brazil on a tight deadline, the team faced several obstacles to completing their task.

One of the most pressing issues involved a backlog in Miami for products shipping to Latin American ports. Market overload prevents cargo and carriers from departing swiftly. They must wait their turn for clearance. The JAS Air Product division immediately went to the drawing board to design a solution for this cargo conundrum. Part of the proposed resolution included reducing the 105 tons of raw material into smaller lots.  The team set aside thirty tons of allocated capacity to get the product moving for the production line.

Problem solved? Not so fast. Once the charter solutions came in, the JAS Brazil team learned there were not even a handful of options available. They had focused on two 767 aircraft to move the main portion of the freight to Brazil. During the booking process, the team discovered one of the aircraft no longer was available due to crew scheduling issues. The new problem facing the team: figuring out how to move 50 tons of payload with only one 767 at their disposal.  

With the delivery schedule in jeopardy, the team again reached out to other carriers. They secured a 747 as a viable option. The problem they now faced was the 747 would not be available until two days after the original delivery deadline. It still was a better option than waiting for the second 767 in their original plan, which would not arrive until more than a week after the deadline.  

JAS Brazil’s team jumped into action with a round of late-evening communications to obtain the green light from the customer to use the 747. By early morning, they had reached an agreement with the customer and set the gears in motion. Trucks began rolling from the pickup location in Oklahoma to Miami. Using the power of their commercial capacity, combined with the charter solution, JAS Brazil kept their customer’s production line running.  

The JAS teams in Charleston and Miami, in conjunction with the JAS Air Product Division, handled a very challenging and time-constricted customer request successfully.

Since the pandemic began, the pharmaceutical industry has experienced rapid growth.

JAS Hong Kong along with JAS Indonesia and JAS USA, Air Charter Solutions.

Simultaneously moving charters from Jakarta, Indonesia to Chicago, Illinois (USA) takes solid coordination skills. JAS Hong Kong put its expertise to the test in recent weeks via a collaboration with the logistics teams from JAS Indonesia and JAS USA (Chicago). The task at hand involved moving a tailor-made charter solution for moving ready-made garments between the two countries for a valued client.  

After much consideration on the best way to move the product, the teams decided to transport via a Boeing 777 commercial freighter. A combination of belly and cabin loading was used to optimize the shipment, which included 3,100 cartons of garments. Configuring the load this way helped prevent the cargo from scattering during transport, which was a requirement of the customer.  

Since the start of the pandemic, securing fleets and aircrew for commercial freighters can be challenging. With a little brainstorming and ingenuity from the JAS Hong Kong, Indonesia, and USA teams, they acquired the charter transport needed to provide a smooth move from the APAC region to the US.  

Customers can benefit from the solid coordination demonstrated by the JAS Hong Kong procurement team. The crew will handle two more charter requests before the end of October and looks forward to serving more customers through its solid coordination and cooperation efforts with JAS teams around the globe.
