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.

As economies around the world are suffering from the impact of Covid-19, businesses are experiencing losses, workers are without jobs, and many face the challenge of a complete upheaval of lifestyle. However, pharmaceutical companies are taking center stage in the Covid-19 fight, and one of these is a Korean conglomerate, SK Group, is seeing growth on the stock market and a new burst of innovation in the infectious disease landscape as the race for treatment approval for a Covid-19 therapy takes off.

SK Group, the 2nd largest group in Korea after Samsung with an annual revenue of $213.6B in 2018, has two arms of pharmaceutical subsidiaries, SK Pharmteco, the pharmaceutical intermediate, and API manufacturer & SK Biopharmaceuticals, the new drug development.

With support from JAS APAC & JAS Worldwide, JAS Korea has become a contracted freight forwarding business partner for SK Biotek as of last December, then after months of implementation period, JAS has been handling various types of Pharmaceutical export shipments by Air & Ocean to additional International Pharmaceutical companies in Europe.

Due to the nature of the cargo, pharmaceutical products, they must be mostly carried by air freight, using special equipment such as dry ice gel/ ice pack, cool/ reefer truck, temperature-controlled storage, and even RKNs which require thorough knowledge and experience to handle such a commodity properly and in a timely manner.

RKN e 1

The RKN e1 is a one pallet size container, based on a second-generation active temperature control system and utilizes compressor cooling and electric heating technology, to meet the requirements of the pharmaceutical industry for smaller air shipments.

The RKN e1 container maintains product temperatures in the +2 to +8 °C range, controlled room temperature (+15 to +25 °C) range,  JAS Korea has successfully arranged 11 RKN e1 for its door to door delivery to a Spanish Pharmaceutical consignee with Dap term in March, when the Pandemic was in the peak.

SK Pharmteco’s subsidiary, AMPAC is one of the strategic partners to a U.S. public benefit drug manufacturing corporation, which recently received federal government funding of $354 million for advanced manufacturing of America’s most essential medicines at risk of shortage, including those for the COVID-19 response. With its strategic partners, it has initiated manufacturing chemical precursor ingredients, active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), and finished dosage forms for over a dozen essential medicines to treat hospitalized patients with COVID-19-related illnesses.

SK Biotek will supply pharmaceutical intermediates to AMPAC and has appointed JAS Korea as the logistics provider for this project. The 1st air shipment was exported to AMPAC in California, USA by suing 5 x RKN e 1 in close cooperation with JAS San Francisco on June 15th, all 5 x RKNs were successfully delivered to AMPAC on the next day. After the ingredient’s analysis main orders will be placed shortly and JAS will continue to handle this business. Next opportunity will be export business out of AMPAC to overseas with the finished products.

JAS Korea is continuing to expand their reputation as the perfect solution for the transportation of pharmaceutical products in the market with these continued efforts excellent team-work. We are sure JAS will be leading the market in a near future.
