In May of 2020 longtime JAS partner Aviagen®  and sister company Hubbard® required a large shipment of live, day-old chicks be transported to Bangladesh from the United States and France. These chicks needed to arrive the next day to their destination, safely and in good health. With the successful delivery of the chicks to Aviagen's customer in Bangladesh the broiler breeding stock will produce 110,393,893 kilograms (243,376,874 pounds) of chicken meat for the people living in Bangladesh.

This important shipment had to go out amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and the restrictions it has brought to the shipping industry, as well as required expertise to navigate the mine field of other special requirements in order to successfully deliver this live cargo next day, safely, and efficiently.

JAS Live Animals regularly organizes airfreight shipments to various destinations, and this shipment was important to Aviagen and marked a historic shipment for the company. Quoted from Aviagen "Several characteristics contribute to the historic nature of this shipment. First, it represents the most grandparent and parent stock chicks ever to be exported internationally in a single shipment. And it is the first-time multiple brands of multi-generational chicks destined for different poultry companies have shared an international flight."  JAS is honored to be part of such a historical event in the Live Animal Industry and to continue to work with Aviagen on future shipments.

This shipment required specialized pallets to be built, as well as overnight feeding to be done for the chicks on their long journey. The pallets, built in the USA, had to merge with the pallets built in France, by a competitor. Thanks to the dedication of the night shift, through their feedings and follow-ups the chicks were under constant care, and thanks to the partnership and clear communication between the customers, forwarders, and airlines this critical shipment was successful.

“This is really where the JAS motto People Make the Difference comes to life. Passion! Passion! Passion! We are dealing with live animals and not general cargo, you must have passion, dedication, and commitment to the cause. And those are the qualities that proudly makes JAS different from the competition, to the point where it seems like you are making the most incredible accomplishments for your customers, but for you it simply has become your normal daily routine.” JAS Live Animals Division Manager, Carlo Rebuffi

JAS is proud to have a strong relationship with Aviagen, handling shipments like this for them for nearly 2 decades. Starting in the United States, JAS worked hard to gain their trust and earn credibility with them, expanding into Europe and gaining the needed expertise to ship such a commodity as live animals to the point that JAS developed its own Live Animals division. This division continues to grow and has a dedicated team of experts willing to go over and beyond to deserve the business of our partners.

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.
