JAS Italy Demonstrates Logistics Expertise in Covid Crisis

April 30, 2020

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.

In seguito al nuovo focolaio COVID-19 divampato nell’area di YANTIAN causandone la chiusura, molte navi stanno omettendo o gravemente ritardando le operazioni in questo porto, provocando a cascata un grave congestionamento su tutti gli approdi del Sud Cina (Shekou, Chiwan ecc…).

JAS Italia in collaborazione con Mercitalia Rail – Gruppo Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane, procederà a breve con un primo TRENO BLOCCO in partenza dalla CINA con arrivo in ITALIA, dedicato INTERAMENTE a JAS e ai nostri spettabili CLIENTI.

La prima partenza programmata a inizio luglio ha già catturato l’attenzione di molti importatori, che hanno provveduto a prenotare lo spazio per le proprie merci. Sono previste diverse altre partenze e siamo certi che questo servizio costituisca una valida alternativa al tradizionale trasporto marittimo, che attualmente presenta gravi criticità negli imbarchi, nel reperimento degli equipment e nei transit time che progressivamente deteriorano.

Il servizio TRENO BLOCCO ha almeno tre indiscutibili vantaggi:

  • garanzia di equipment
  • transit time più veloce rispetto agli attuali trasporti marittimi
  • basso impatto ambientale e ridotte emissioni di CO2.

Con i noli marittimi alle stelle e le generali difficoltà d’imbarco, il servizio treno è sicuramente competitivo. Come accennato, le partenze previste sono svariate e provvederemo ad aggiornare l’operatività in sintonia con quanto avverrà nel mercato nel prossimo periodo.

Attualmente i porti di partenza sono Shanghai, Ningbo, Qingdao e Shenzhen, ma stiamo già valutando di ampliare l’offerta includendo altre origini.

I container arriveranno direttamente al terminal di Milano e avremo a nostra disposizione 41 container treno blocco.

Per maggiori dettagli e informazioni non esitate a contattare il Vs. referente commerciale, oppure scrivete a IT-Tradelane@jas.com e sarete prontamente contattati.

JAS Laredo opened in 2015 as a sales office dedicated to increasing the JAS cross-border traffic. Laredo offers JAS Worldwide a solid strategic location where the company can grow and increase its presence on both sides of the U.S. - Mexican border. This branch also creates solutions and acts as additional support for the JAS Worldwide network.  

JAS Laredo started as part of the JAS Houston Branch before becoming a satellite office. The move was made in conjunction with JAS McAllen, where their significant efforts contributed to JAS McAllen receiving a nomination for branch of the year in 2019. JAS Laredo focuses on selling cross-border business. Their specialties include transportation and US-Mexico customs brokerage, with a strong footprint in distribution and warehousing services.  

With much operational growth in 2017, Customs Entry Specialist Laura “Rocio” Enriquez joined the team.  She brings with her more than 10 years of experience in US/MX customs brokerage. With the support of JAS Compliance and Enriquez’s natural drive, the team has excelled in this area, building valuable and trusting relationships.  

In February 2021, the Laredo team moved into a state-of-the-art facility with direct access to third-party warehouses. JAS Laredo has two warehouses at its disposal, each one with about 60,000 square feet with 1,000 pallet positions. Under the leadership of Antonio Pastrana, Branch Manager, the Laredo team adopted an admirable understanding of the market and the intricacies of dealing with the United States and Mexican governments. The boutique concept to selling along the southern border and the consultancy approach with JAS Laredo’s customers has brought on new business and a newfound demand for the products and services offered.  

The Laredo team has proven expertise and true skill in establishing cross-border solutions, which has enabled JAS to stand out against its competitors, particularly in this volatile market. The Laredo team currently operates a distribution model for two of its key global customers, utilizing the customers’ systems and acting as an extension of their operations.  

Monica Ortiz, the Operational Supervisor, brings more than 20 years of experience in freight forwarding to the team. She specializes in 4-wall distribution and logistics, which supports JAS Laredo’s efforts in providing these additional services in Laredo while maintaining an impressive 98.5 percent inventory accuracy.  

Tracy Garcia, Transportation Supervisor, was JAS Laredo’s first hire, with years of experience in trucking and ground transportation from the carrier and broker/forwarder side of the business. Tracy’s impact on the JAS Laredo operation became clear immediately. Her level of dedication and enthusiasm is commendable. Regularly going the extra mile to ensure that our internal and external customers are satisfied, she provides a level of contagious positivity. Garcia is a team member who makes a difference.  

The JAS Laredo team is incredibly pleased with the developments taking place within the branch. JAS Laredo handles a vast customer portfolio of locally controlled and developed businesses. JAS Laredo provides trucking services, together with US and MX customs brokerage via multiple border crossings.  Similarly, JAS Laredo provides ground transportation services from multiple pick-up points in Mexico.

Like JAS Miami, the Laredo team has access to an FTZ (Foreign-Trade Zone, Inc.). This activation also allows JAS Laredo to provide specialized services related to FTZ operations. For legal purposes, this space is outside the customs territory of the United States, which provides the opportunity to offer weekly entry services, duty deferral for import goods, and duty eliminations for some export goods while also providing cost-saving measures. These are major benefits when operating along the border.

The Laredo team has gained a unique perspective from our Mexican brokerage side, truly operating in a cohesive manner, which has certainly allowed for the development of detailed and targeted solutions for our clients. The Laredo team is expanding by exceeding the industry standard. I am grateful to the team for their efforts in continuously remaining innovative and committed to our customers.
Congratulations JAS Laredo, what an inspiring branch! At JAS People Make the Difference!" Eugenio Fumo, CEO JAS USA
