On August 16th 2018, the commencement of the first China-Europe block train service was marked by a ceremony in Fuzhou, Jiangxi Province. It was attended by top government officials from Fuzhou, Customs officers, key representatives from local enterprises as well as JAS corporate representatives from both China and Germany.
The attendees included Bruce Ning, General Manager of Northern and Central China, Kitty Yuen, Head of Ocean Freight (South China), Steven Su, Branch Manager (Xiamen), Tina Zhou, Branch Manager (Ningbo) and Bernd Scheunemann, BDM - Frankfurt (Germany).
The launch of the first block train service was of enormous significance for both the Fuzhou government and JAS China. The train, carrying its first dedicated 41-containers containing products produced by local companies, marked the official start of a railway partnership between Fuzhou and JAS China. As part of China’s ‘Belt and Road’ initiative, both Fuzhou and JAS China seek to facilitate trade links between China, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. It is strongly believed this will bring much better connectivity and will act to further boost trade for the local surrounding catchment area among Jiangxi province.
The move follows close collaboration among local municipalities, shippers, consignees, rail operator China Rail Express, local customs, and JAS China being the end to end logistics service provider. This train departs from Fuzhou, passes through the Manzhouli border and onwards through Russia, Belorussia, and Poland before finally arriving at Hamburg in Germany. This dedicated train service traverses 5 countries, traveling a total of 16,000 km in 17 days. JAS strives to do its best in providing customers with secure and reliable door-to-door rail service, which presents greater flexibility as faster option to sea freight and cheaper than air freight for time-sensitive goods. In addition, GPS monitoring and other value-added services are also available.
JAS China, with its head office in Hong Kong has 17 owned offices across China to cope with the ever-increasing logistics needs in the region. The organization has over 600 specialized staff, offers a wide range of products in air freight, ocean freight, sea/air services, customs brokerage, logistics warehouses and other related services.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or reach out to your local JAS representative for more information.
For nearly 10 years JAS Italy has cooperated with primary Italian Government Institutions, chief among them, the Civil Protection Department for which JAS has been engaged for the last 6 years. Prior to the current situation, JAS Italy supported the Department during the last earthquake emergency in central Italy in 2017.
JAS continues to support Italian institutions during the current COVID-19 emergency, having once again been identified as one of their reliable suppliers of transportation and logistics on behalf of the Civil Protection Department. As a result, JAS has taken charge of their import/export distribution process, focusing its efforts on domestic destinations and regions.
Urgently needed Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) commodities are being moved on behalf of the Civil Protections Department to address the health crisis in Italy. Starting in February and continuing through today, JAS has thus far moved more than 50 million masks along with protective suits, visors, gloves, respirators, pulmonary ventilators, test tubes, and swabs. When the Covid-19 emergency surfaced, JAS initially arranged shipments from China, Brazil, and South Africa mainly via general cargo urgent flights. However as demand dramatically increased, JAS recognized that available volumes were not meeting the needs of its customers. As a result, JAS ramped up the use of charter flights to better meet customer requirements.
JAS works closely with all of its customers to meet their specific needs. The Civil Protection Dept supplies detailed distribution plans to JAS on daily basis for all deliveries throughout Italy, including the islands. All shipments arrive at Malpensa and Fiumicino warehouse hubs which are then sorted and labelled before sending on to their final destinations. Starting in February JAS has arranged more than 1200 of these dedicated overnight deliveries. JAS Italy also supervises and coordinates daily military flights from Milano and Rome, destined to north and southbound destinations in addition to on-wheels shuttles.
JAS is publicly recognized in the transportation market as a company able to handle medical supplies shipments with high professionalism on Covid-19 contrast.
Lombardy Region, as example, contacted and awarded JAS a contract for their shipping needs for the brand new FIERA MILANO hospital preparation; from beds to respirators, and everything else that was needed.
In other Covid-19 efforts, on April 9th, JAS Italy operated a dedicated charter flight from PVG to MXP for a private customer who had an urgent need to move in excess of 5 million masks and 20.000 protective suits. Despite the complexities, within a few short hours of the 747F landing, all the commodities were delivered to the customer’s warehouse.
Among its many capabilities during this pandemic, JAS has received and stored foreign country donations to It.GOV, often hosting a brief ceremony of goodwill, usually presided over by the local Ambassador of the donating country.
Additionally, JAS receives and stores PPE orders directly from national contracted suppliers of IT.GOV.
