JAS Uses Business Intelligence Tools

By
September 30, 2016

If you ask most business leaders in the world what their most important resource is, many will tell you it’s their people. At JAS, our culture is no different from our company motto, “People Make the Difference”.  Given that people are the number one resource in business, the number two resource should be their time; an important factor that often goes overlooked. Driving value in today’s Trans-Pacific supply chain market for logistic service providers can be challenging.  No longer do logistics and supply chain managers make decisions in a vacuum.  Most organizations make collective decisions when it comes to their supply chain since it involves finance, purchasing, customer service, production, etc. This process can take a lot of time given that these decisions affect every aspect of the company.

Market information is readily available in the form of social media, blogs, newsletters, and industry websites.  However, there is typically some level of bias associated with such mediums based upon the sources of the data. This is a reality in any industry.  Given the market volatility, supply chain decision makers are tasked to take in all available information then work with other affected company departments to predict the future.  By identifying this complex customer need, JAS was driven to provide a solution.  We began by compiling data from our global operating system then designing a Business Intelligence Platform to highlight customer trends and proactively identify improvement opportunities.  JAS now provides their clients with a business intelligence tool that replaces perception-based decision making with unbiased data analytics to help strengthen supply chains and identify trends.  Due to the overwhelmingly positive feedback from our customers, we decided to take this initiative a step further and use our “JAS Business Intelligence Tool” during the discovery stage with potential clients prior to a formal partnership agreement.  We first gather historical data from the client as well as other industry platforms such as Datamyne, Zepol and Import Genius.  Next, we upload the data into our tool and set up a series of views for an in depth analysis. Performing this exercise allows JAS to better understand the customer’s supply chain model and help clients identify improvement opportunities early in the relationship.  Any additional details uncovered during the supply chain assessment are quickly adjusted to provide a more detailed view of the results.

The JAS Business Intelligence Tool translates data into a language that can be understood by all respective departments within an organization at the highest level without having to be a supply chain expert.  It also allows for more educated, collective decision making to give customers peace of mind knowing that, although they cannot predict the future, they are more prepared to handle the future with JAS as their partner.

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.
