From 2001 until today, the automotive industry in Mexico has received more than 40,000 million dollars of Foreign Direct Investment, which represents an important driver in the economic activity of the country.
This sector has become strategic for the national economy and has gained a great reputation internationally, due to the fact that its exports contributed to the increase of foreign currency revenues in 2015 by 114,493.4 million dollars, almost 4.8 times the income from oil exports during the same period.
In concrete figures:
Its evolution has been such that, at the end of 2018, the automotive and auto parts sector represented approximately 3.7% of the national Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and 20.2% of the Mexican manufacturing GDP, according to information from the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (INEGI).
As comparative figures, in 2008, the sector contributed 2.1% of the national GDP and 12.7% of the manufacturing GDP.
Based on the above information and in order to achieve and go beyond the expectations of our customers in such a large industry in Mexico, JAS Mexico has decided to name Ms Martha Jazmin Garcia as the new National Account Manager. Martha will be the main contact for the Automotive Industry in JAS Mexico. Martha, under Mr Jim Ryan who leads the JAS Automotive Industry globally, is responsible for the strategic creation and execution of solutions that can provide solutions and improvements to customers throughout all JAS Mexico offices.
Part of this strategy will include the JAS specialized portfolio services which will be made available at all operation desks at every branch in Mexico. Martha will be a main point of reference for other JAS personnel around the globe, being in charge of the development of business among automotive customers.
Martha Jazmin Garcia has been a professional in the Freight Forwarding Industry since 2006, when she started working as sales support, issuing quotations and dealing with customers that let her have her first contact in the area of sales; based on that experience and the rapid speed she excelled to the regional level of sales, she was promoted upward within the company through the sales department, but in China as a Mexican Help Desk associate where she was the main channel of communication with the Chinese market and her Mexican counterparts. After three years she returned to Mexico where she was enrolled as a Sales Executive in the Bajio Area, located in Queretaro, where she increased her contact with Automotive Customers. After that, she was promoted to a Sales Supervisor in the same region thanks to her hard work and determination, she was then promoted to Sales Manager in Puebla, where VW & Audi suppliers are steadily growing cargo operations.
Based on that experience and in-depth knowledge of the automotive industry and atmosphere, she was hired by JAS in 2018 as a Key Account Manager, attending to more than 20 users located in around 10 plants, between Queretaro, Guadalajara, Ramos Arizpe, Toluca, Durango, Monterrey, and Agua.
JAS is proud to have people like Martha with us making the difference for our customers! Please join us in congratulating her on this new position.
In today’s environment, shippers are faced with numerous challenges, from the immediate need to replenish drastically reduced inventory levels to budgeting logistics costs in a highly unpredictable environment. Blank sailings, carrier solvency, and steadily building port congestion is resulting in increased supply chain risk and lead time fluctuations. Global air cargo capacity has been reduced by over 25% making access to space more constrained due to overall demand and increased dwell time due to testing and customs inspections of PPE goods.
JAS is working closely with our customers to offer solutions that balance planning with responsiveness and agility, while working to provide service options that mitigate the increased costs and risks that exist with current market conditions.
Our Flight Operations solutions address the immediate and urgent needs of our customers. We have scheduled weekly flights from the following areas:
China to the USA with connections to Latin America
Europe to the USA with connections to Latin America
USA to Europe
China to Europe
Additional flights will be added as needed.
JAS SEA-AIR services provide an alternative solution to customers requiring shorter lead times than traditional ocean freight while providing a lower cost option to air freight. We currently offer hubs in Singapore and Korea that connect Asia with the rest of the world.
For traditional ocean FCL and LCL services, our ocean team aligns our carrier allocations and schedules with our customers’ forecasts. Services such as container and order management offer additional value to our standard ocean freight services.
While our current priority is to work with your immediate needs, we do not want to lose sight of the need for long-term planning strategies so please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or reach out to your local JAS representative for more information.
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.
