In keeping with its mission and momentum for growth, JAS India recently announced a move for its corporate office. Investing in a modern workspace at a prime location, JAS India continues to provide team members with access to collaborative work environments with reliable infrastructure.  The new building’s unique architecture, color and design represent the true spirit of JAS India.  

The move to its new location marks the beginning of another chapter in JAS India’s history. A soft opening for the new corporate office location happened on August 20. Tomas Sonntag, Executive Vice President of Asia Pacific, Sonal Singhal, Managing Director of JAS India, and Stefano Olmi, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Asia Pacific, presided over the ribbon-cutting ceremony.  

To celebrate the move to its brand-new India headquarters, JAS India also launched its JAS India Reload Program. This innovative program represents the changed culture and identity of the subsidiary and sets the platform for its ambitious growth plans in India.

It is a pleasure to be a part of JAS India's rebirth, this is what I would like to call it[a rebirth]since the ultimate intention really was to bring the JAS global corporate culture to India too, culture that really never existed before in JAS India. It was definitely a tough endeavor, it is a tough endeavor to change the DNA of a company, [to change]at all how it functions, because naturally every human being is not really so comfortable with change, therefore sometimes Sonal and I had to face some really tough decisions. But the outcome of these decisions ultimately is the results you see today in this organization. This new office with it's unique architecture, colors, and spirit really represents cutting away from the past, it shows the true colors of JAS India, it shows its new identity, and you should be proud of it. You should feel really a part of it because people are the ones who ultimately make the difference. " Stefano Olmi JAS VP Sales & Market, Asia Pacific

Short sea shipping provides great environmental, social, and economic advantages and plays a key role in sustainable shipping.

Over time, the volume of goods being transported on European roads has steadily increased, leading to congested roads, delays, and unnecessary costs. As shippers look to avoid these issues, many are considering short sea shipping as a viable solution.

What is short sea shipping?

Short sea shipping is essentially container movement within Europe, but with a short time on the sea. Short sea shipping is an excellent alternative to road freight. However, it is not a matter of dismantling road transport. It is about environmentally smart alternatives that improve existing supply chains.

What are the advantages of short sea shipping?

  • Increased Reliability: One significant benefit of short sea shipping is that shippers receive goods in a reliable, consistent, and timely manner. Unlike road transport, which is prone to delays and irregular logistics flow due to congestion, short sea shipping allows for scheduled departures and arrivals.
  • A Sustainable Choice: Short sea shipping provides great environmental, social, and economic advantages and plays a vital role in sustainable shipping. Moving a significant volume of goods from road freight to short sea will positively impact road congestion, road safety, and noise levels. One feeder vessel carries the equivalent of 500 truckloads. Compared to using trucks only, this solution provides increased both in terms of cost and CO2 emissions.
  • Buy What You Need: The size of a container often determines the quantity purchased, but it is important to buy and transport only what is needed. A short sea solution enables shippers to avoid producing excess merchandise with no demand and risks being destroyed. Short sea shipping affords the opportunity to book smaller quantities resulting in fewer containers being utilized.
  • Cost-Efficient Alternative: Sea freight rates are considerably lower than road freight rates, especially when transporting larger freight volumes and heavier cargo. Transitioning from road freight to short sea allows shippers to circumvent the high freight rates associated with road transport. In the long term, moving large volumes to short sea and away from the roads of Europe would help restore the capacity imbalance in road freight and eventually remove lack-of-capacity surcharges.

Jordy Romeijn, Pharma & Healthcare Customer Experience Director

JAS Worldwide EMEA is pleased to announce the appointment of Jordy Romeijn to the position of  EMEA Pharma & Healthcare Customer Experience Director as of 09 May 2022. Working in this pivotal role from his home base in the Netherlands, together with the region’s Pharma & Healthcare teams Jordy will champion customer experience and operational excellence for the region.  

Jordy has more than 20 years’ experience in the logistics industry, starting when he was just 15 years old, and has hands-on experience in nearly every aspect of freight forwarding, “from warehouse to sales and everything in between.” He joined JAS in  Rotterdam in 2007, and was quickly promoted to Branch Manager. After guiding them through significant growth, in 2017 Jordy relocated to the USA to manage the JAS Chicago branch, which at the time was “fairly small” in the JAS organization. Fast forward five years, under Jordy’s leadership the JAS Chicago branch is now the largest in the US, handling multiple own freighters per week and preparing for the grand opening of a new state-of -the-art 80,000 square foot pharma and healthcare logistics facility in summer 2022.

Of his appointment, Jordy says: “During my years working with JAS I have witnessed the company continuously grow and develop itself – JAS today is vastly different then JAS 16 years ago. My long tenure and experience on both sides of the Atlantic will allow me to contribute toward growing the Pharma & Healthcare vertical, and I am truly looking forward to this exciting new opportunity.”

JAS is delighted to welcome Jordy to this new position and is confident he will play a key role in upholding and continuously improving the service quality provided to our valued clients as we continue to invest in the pharma and healthcare logistics industry.
