JAS France is the Next Big Thing

By

France is changing fast. With the newly elected young French president, Emmanuel Macron, who is reforming economic sectors, the French Industry is back on a positive momentum, full of dynamic entrepreneurs. One of France’s economical specialties is that it is the the home of global groups like LVMH, L’Oreal, Saint Gobain, Airbus, Renault, Danone, Schneider, all with huge export volumes. As well as on the import side, with huge retailers like Carrefour, Auchan, and Decathlon, among many others!

In terms of the freight forwarding market, France is also very dynamic and still holds as the 7th largest economy in the World. Transport volumes are increasing with great import and export, air, sea, and rail volumes. The main port for containers is Le Havre to the North of the country, but France is also reachable via the port of Antwerp in Belgium. In the South, the port of FOS/Marseille is renowned as an entry door into Europe from the Mediterranean Sea. For airfreight transport, the national platform and most important airport is located north of Paris, the Roissy-CDG airport. Another fast-growing airport is Lyon, heart of a strong industrial economy, with major international airlines, like Emirates, operating directly.

In the midst of this strong economy trend, JAS FRANCE is ready to serve you! JAS is amongst the Top 15 IATA forwarding agents in France, with 5 fully-operational offices in Paris, Lyon, Nantes, and Nice. JAS France is proud to count with a growing professional staff of 74 dedicated employees: People make the difference!

JAS France has the privilege, and unique selling point, to have its own warehouse in Paris-CDG. A state-of-the-art cross-dock warehouse of 5.000 square meters. Only a very few freight forwarders can offer this benefit on the Paris airport surroundings.

With the enthusiastic vision to develop our expertise and capabilities in the perishable business (pharma & food sector), the JAS France Managing director, Mr Laurent Gohet, recently invested in a superb cold room to attend our client’s needs.

JAS France also offers a very important customs advantage. JAS France, due to its location right outside of the airport, depends on the Marne La Vallée French Customs Department, which JAS France has worked with for more than 10 years, and built trust, understanding of our processes, and therefore are given a diligent clearing process to the full advantage of our esteemed customers.

Laurent Richard

With the desire to continue our development and strength, JAS France has the pleasure to introduce its new National Sales Director, Laurent Richard, whom joined the company in June 2017. Laurent is delighted to be part of the French team and very optimistic for the company’s growth. His market experience and sales drive will be great assets to the dynamic French market.

JAS France also recently hired a team of experienced professionals to strengthen its Sales and Operations Departments, new experts to give one of the best customer experiences in the industry. This is especially true with the complete logistics visibility that JAS offers to its clients thanks to our best-in-class operational platform, fully integrated globally, which brings “live” and highly accurate transport milestones, in addition to automated key performance indicators.  

Finally, to be even more efficient in attending to our clients' needs, JAS France also structured a new French Tender & Pricing Management Team, in order to promptly answer our Customers and the JAS Network. This Team will be led by Mrs Charline Pepin, and JAS France's main objective is to answer all of your requests with the best reactivity and accuracy possible, in order to develop our business with customers, and with our partners around the world.

Vive la France! And long life to JAS France, which is ready to support your business around the world!

Latest News

The current pandemic has caused shipping disruptions across the globe.  

With a 70% reduction in passenger flights since February 2020, the overall global air freight capacity is down about 25% from this time last year.  Limited space on limited flights means frequent delays and interruptions of supply chains globally.

With the unpredictable availability of cargo space, how do we regain control of air freight to ensure service in such a critical time?  

The traditional air freight model is no longer a realistic option, instead Flight Operations are the key for maintaining a reliable and uninterrupted supply chain by providing door-to-door control of the shipping process. With a Flight Operation, every step of the process - from the time the cargo is picked up to its final delivery - is meticulously managed by the service provider.  

Shipments are processed through facilities controlled by the service provider, both at origin and destination. This system avoids the typical congestion at airport hubs, reduces overall transit time, and increases control.

The aircraft themselves offer unmatched flexibility to meet all cargo needs. Freighters have the capability to move normal and specialized cargo such as dangerous goods, oversized pieces, and shipments requiring refrigeration such as perishable and pharma.  

Lastly, a prime network of delivery options carries the cargo to its ultimate destination.

In early August JAS introduced BLUE WORLD ATLANTIC, a weekend roundtrip Flight Operation between Chicago and Frankfurt, utilizing B 747 – 400 F Nose-Load for optimum loading capabilities. The BLUE WORLD ATLANTIC prime schedule is the best solution for supporting customers in the transatlantic air freight corridor!

If your business could benefit from a regular flight operation in the transatlantic corridor contact a local JAS representative for more information.

We are glad to announce that Ricardo Ortiz has joined the JAS family as Sales & Marketing Director JAS Chile.

During the last 6 years held the role of Country Head of Ocean Freight and previously had several positions on the Sales area.

We are sure that Ricardo will be key to generate a boost on Chile growth.

Please join us in welcoming Ricardo to the JAS family!

Per il terzo anno di fila CONFETRA organizza il prestigioso evento Denominato AGORA’ 2020 e JAS, presente sin dalla prima edizione del 2018, NON potrà mancare con l’ importante partecipazione del nostro Keynote Speaker Mr. Biagio Bruni.

Sarà un momento di confronto importante e sarà l’occasione per fare il punto sulle grandi dinamiche del commercio globale che sta generando mutamenti profondi non solo nel mondo dell’Industria, ma anche nei settori della Logistica e nel Trasporto Internazionale, il tutto fortemente “modificato” anche in conseguenza alle sfide che il “Mondo Post Covid” potrà determinare per l’Italia e per le nostre Imprese.

Infatti a causa dell’emergenza sanitaria causata dal COVID-19, anche il settore dei Trasporti Aerei ha subito dei fortissimi mutamenti sin dai primi giorni di Marzo 2020, causando pesanti contraccolpi sulla continuità della Supply Chain.  

Nonostante questo difficile momento, siamo fieri di affermare che ancora una volta JAS ha avuto una “Market Vision” offrendo servizi JAS CHARTER FLIGHTS in grado di fornire continuità alla Supply Chain della Clientela e di Istituzioni Nazionali ed Internazionali.

JAS ha deciso deciso di continuare con l’investimento effettuato nei mesi precedenti, puntando sull’ organizzazione di vere e proprie «JAS FLIGHT OPERATIONS» su alcune delle Trade Lanes principali.

Il Servizio proposto da JAS  e’ gia’ operativo su uno dei piu’ importanti corridori per il traffico aereo che resta anche uno dei piu’ colpiti dalla cancellazione dei voli passeggeri:

NORTH AMERICA – EUROPA - NORTH AMERICA

Gli altri corridoi continuano ad essere serviti tramite voli charter organizzati in base alle esigenze del momento.

Per maggiori dettagli in merito allo schedule dei voli contattate l’ ufficio JAS piu’ vicino

For the third year in a row, CONFETRA is organizing AGORA’ 2020.   JAS will be contributing to this important event with the Keynote Speaker Mr. Biagio Bruni.

This is the ideal forum for exchanging ideas and to discuss the current turmoil in the world of commerce which will cause deep changes for all industries and their supply chains, particularly for the international transportation of goods. Everything will be affected, the POST COVID-19 world will be full of challenges and opportunities for Italy and its Industries.

The health crisis caused by COVID-19, greatly affected the whole Air Transportation sector starting from the first few days of March 2020. Supply Chains around the world were completely disrupted.

Despite the very difficult moment, JAS was able to anticipate the market needs quickly establishing a series of JAS CHARTER FLIGHTS to cover any supply chain gap for its clients, as well as Italian and International institutions.

JAS recently decided to expand the investment creating what we now call “JAS FLIGHT OPERATIONS” on the most important Trade-Lanes.

The service is already operational in one of the most important air freight corridors which is also one of the most impacted by the cancellation of many passenger flights:

NORTH AMERICA – EUROPE – NORTH AMERICA

Other flight corridors will be served with Charter Flights which will be organized depending on the market needs.
