JAS Designs a Multi-Modal Airfreight Solution for an Urgent Shipment

By

July 6, 2021

At JAS, we know people make the difference, so when a customer contacted us needing to move a specialized mining tool from India to Mexico via airfreight, team members across the world collaborated to design a tailor-made solution.

The oversized and overweight tool was too large for regular air freight, weighing over 3,600 Kgs and measuring more than 19.00 CBM, and needed to be moved quickly so that the customer could maintain business continuity. Without it, the customer risked needing to stop operations which could cost them thousands of dollars.

Realizing the time-sensitive nature of the project, JAS logistics engineering experts quickly worked to develop a unique multi-modal routing plan that allowed the Out Of Gauge (OOG) piece to be moved from India via Europe to Texas, USA, and to its final destination in Mexico in a very short period of time.

Thanks to the collaboration of our team members, the OOG tool was delivered to the customer in 6 days allowing for complete business continuity.

JAS is dedicated to our customers and often has the opportunity to help clients overcome challenges when immediate shipments are needed. We have a passion for finding solutions to these kinds of problems and acting as a reliable partner for our clients.

Congratulations to all of our team members, whose hard work and dedication made this happen. We are proud to continue to make a difference for our customers!

This notice serves as a reminder of the yearly Golden Week holiday in China.

October 1-7, 2021 is the annual Golden Week or Mid-Autumn Festival holiday in China, China's national holiday week, to celebrate the birth of the People's Republic of China. During this week parades, ceremonies, and other events take place throughout China.

During this time, factories typically close, and production is halted or limited. In addition, airlines, shipping companies, railway, and commercial operators also typically suspend their activities or run-on skeleton crews during these days.

Given the current market situation (COVID-19, severe port congestion, equipment shortages, etc.), Golden Week 2021 will likely have a more significant impact on your supply chain than in years past. Backlog is expected to continue to accumulate while activities at ports and airport are halted or reduced. Therefore, it is important you are prepared and take this into account when planning your imports

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to your JAS representative.
