JAS Malaysia Donates to Reef Check

On May 31st, 2018, JAS Malaysia handled the airfreight shipment of a Glass Bottle Crushing Machine from New Zealand to Tioman Island, Malaysia, on behalf of their customer, Reef Check Malaysia.

Reef Check is an international marine conservation non-profit organization and was established in the USA in 1996. Reef Check was then established in Malaysia in 2007. Reef Check protects, restores, and revives coral reefs. They conduct an annual coral reef check survey to assess the health of the reefs around the islands of Malaysia and strive to educate and build public awareness about coral reef rehabilitation programs.

The shipment handover was at Mersing jetty and arrived in good condition in less than a week from when it was shipped. The machine will be used to recycle all glass bottles on the island to reduce waste. The recycled glass silica waste will be used to build a concrete base for a coral reef rehabilitation unit.
​On July 25th, 2018, JAS Malaysia not only channeled the proceeds of the airfreight shipment, but also presented a check donation to Mr. Julian Hyde, General Manager of Reef Check Malaysia. The donation was presented by Managing Director of JAS Malaysia, Mr. Mervin Lin, at the JAS Malaysia Bangsar HQ.

Both organizations took time as well to exchange thoughts regarding the possibility of working together for future projects.

“The recently delivered glass crushing machine has proved a great hit on Tioman, and it is now helping us to solve a huge problem there – dealing with the mountain of glass that has grown over the years. The crushed glass is now being used to make concreate that forms the base of reef rehabilitation units, so it is being recycled to great effect.

We are very grateful to JAS for their help and expertise in getting the machine delivered – it’s something we know absolutely nothing about. Their service was quick and efficient throughout, and we are very grateful to them for that, and their kind donation towards our work.” – Mr Julian Hyde, General Manager - Reef Check Malaysia

As a part of the larger move towards more sustainable wine production, Greencarrier Freight Services offers short sea shipping services as an innovative transportation alternative to road freight.

Wine has been produced in the Iberian Peninsula for many centuries.

Throughout Portugal, there are fourteen Delimited Wine Regions. Due to unique geography of the area, a variety of quality wines suchas sparkling wines, white wines, red wines, rosé wines, and different kinds of vinegar can be found.

In 2015, Portugal’s Alentejo Region launched its award winning “Alentejo Wine Sustainability Program” (PSVA) in the region’s vineyards, in part, to promote more sustainable wine production environment.

As part of this move towards more sustainable wine production, Greencarrier Freight Services offers short sea shipping services as an innovative transportation alternative to road freight.

The service operates from Porto in Portugal to the Nordic region. Cargo for the Nordic market is consolidated from all over Spain and Portugal, where it is then shipped to Gothenburg for further distribution in the Nordics.

“This sustainable service option is a way for shippers to reduce direct emissions but also mitigate congested roads and shortage of drivers. It is our ambition to make it simple for our clients to switch to sustainable alternatives without having to recreate their entire supply chain, says Ari Malvela, Head of Road Freight.

Less than container load (LCL) allows you to ship smaller quantities more frequently. With weekly departures and fast transit times it is easier than ever to build supply chains that are both efficient and sustainable.

“Can we afford not to become more sustainable? This logistics solution is part of our initiative “Green Solutions” and reduces your environmental footprint up to 80% when compared to using road freight. One feeder vessel carries the equivalent of 500 truckloads, reducing the pressure on congested roads as well as the environment,” says Stefan Larsen, Ocean Freight Manager.
