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.

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.

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.
