We are very pleased to announce this investment, which is necessary to keep growing and contribute [to] the air product development in our company. The strong growth we obtained in recent years explains the decision to have a presence at the Airport. This is a competitive advantage, improving the quality of the service we offer to our customers and confirm JAS as an important player in our local market.

Uruguay and, in particular,  Carrasco airport have great potential for the future. Because it not only operates as a reception center for local exports and imports; but also the Uruguayan legislation gives it the “Free Airport” agreement [which is] a very important benefit. This is a good platform for foreign companies looking to establish a regional distribution center for Latin American markets.

The Free Airport regime has been incorporated relatively recently compared to the existing free zone and free port regimes. Therefore, many companies are expected to join this platform, mainly those in vertical markets requiring large parts of their cargo by air. (i.e.Pharma).

Uruguay is a Regional HUB. Through the different logistics platforms that Uruguayan law permits (Free Zones, Free Port and Free Airport), many multinational companies are already operating in our country as a distribution center for the region. In this sense, more than 40% of the total air cargo exports come from these special customs zones and the percentage is increasing year by year. Uruguay will be closing the year 2016 with a total of 13.5 million kilos of export moved by air.

The airport's cargo terminal has just presented [itself as] a very important investment in infrastructure. Within the airport there is a facility designed in compliance with good distribution practices (GDP) established by WHO (World Health Organization), prepared to meet the high requirements of handling and storage of the pharmaceutical industry. The main purpose is to attract new foreign companies in this sector.

Our presence at the airport, together with the successful implementation of our global cargo system (Cargowise), provide optimum conditions to offer this type of integral logistics solutions to our global corporate clients.  We have no doubt this is a very important step in our 15 years of history as [a] JAS WW subsidiary. At the strategic level, we aim to be aligned with the perspectives and challenges that Uruguay as a logistics country has in the upcoming years. The JAS Uruguay team is ready

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.
