JAS Develops Border Link Team

Stretching almost 2,000 miles, the border between Mexico and the United States is the most frequently crossed and controlled international boundary in the world. The world’s busiest border is also responsible for over 238 billion dollars in trade. In 2016, JAS Forwarding has taken the initiative to develop a Trade Lane specifically focused on fostering the partnership and collaboration between JAS USA and JAS Mexico.

Reuben Botello heads the JAS Forwarding Border-Link initiative as our Border Development Trade Lane Director.  To further strengthen the JAS Forwarding existing operations in San Diego and El Paso, JAS added full operations to McAllen, TX, headed by Mario Degollado.  Next, JAS added the North America International Pricing Manager, Antonio Pastrana, based in JAS Laredo, TX Sales and Pricing Office.  Since Laredo is one of the primary hubs for overland transportation activity between the USA and Mexico, JAS can better foster strategic relationships with trucking partners on both sides of the border. This has made an immediate impact for JAS Forwarding in the market place.

In an example of JAS' recent success through the Laredo corridor, the Border-Link team assisted Brandon Miller, Branch Manager of JAS Charleston, in moving 10 trailers and flatbeds from upstate New York to San Luis Potosi, Mexico.  JAS was able to provide the right price, allocation of equipment, and end to end visibility via Web-Tracker.  This collaborative effort resulted in a satisfied customer and tied in directly to JAS' cross border strengths.  That is what JAS strives for: a win/win situation for JAS customers and the company.  

The bilingual and bicultural staff at each of the four offices (El Paso, Laredo, McAllen and San Diego) enables JAS to act as an experienced liaison for customers. The team provides a single, seamless point of contact to facilitate management of cross border operations. Now with a strategic presence in all major inland ports along the Southern border of the United States, JAS has positioned itself not just to participate in this important part of JAS customer’s supply chains, but to be an innovator in the marketplace.

​JAS looks forward to the opportunity to prove why it is the best option in Border-Link services!

As a part of the larger move towards more sustainable wine production, Greencarrier Freight Services offers short sea shipping services as an innovative transportation alternative to road freight.

Wine has been produced in the Iberian Peninsula for many centuries.

Throughout Portugal, there are fourteen Delimited Wine Regions. Due to unique geography of the area, a variety of quality wines suchas sparkling wines, white wines, red wines, rosé wines, and different kinds of vinegar can be found.

In 2015, Portugal’s Alentejo Region launched its award winning “Alentejo Wine Sustainability Program” (PSVA) in the region’s vineyards, in part, to promote more sustainable wine production environment.

As part of this move towards more sustainable wine production, Greencarrier Freight Services offers short sea shipping services as an innovative transportation alternative to road freight.

The service operates from Porto in Portugal to the Nordic region. Cargo for the Nordic market is consolidated from all over Spain and Portugal, where it is then shipped to Gothenburg for further distribution in the Nordics.

“This sustainable service option is a way for shippers to reduce direct emissions but also mitigate congested roads and shortage of drivers. It is our ambition to make it simple for our clients to switch to sustainable alternatives without having to recreate their entire supply chain, says Ari Malvela, Head of Road Freight.

Less than container load (LCL) allows you to ship smaller quantities more frequently. With weekly departures and fast transit times it is easier than ever to build supply chains that are both efficient and sustainable.

“Can we afford not to become more sustainable? This logistics solution is part of our initiative “Green Solutions” and reduces your environmental footprint up to 80% when compared to using road freight. One feeder vessel carries the equivalent of 500 truckloads, reducing the pressure on congested roads as well as the environment,” says Stefan Larsen, Ocean Freight Manager.
