JAS Recognized by a Valued Customer

JAS Introduces Blue World Atlantic

By
September 22, 2020

The current pandemic has caused shipping disruptions across the globe.  

With a 70% reduction in passenger flights since February 2020, the overall global air freight capacity is down about 25% from this time last year.  Limited space on limited flights means frequent delays and interruptions of supply chains globally.

With the unpredictable availability of cargo space, how do we regain control of air freight to ensure service in such a critical time?  

The traditional air freight model is no longer a realistic option, instead Flight Operations are the key for maintaining a reliable and uninterrupted supply chain by providing door-to-door control of the shipping process. With a Flight Operation, every step of the process - from the time the cargo is picked up to its final delivery - is meticulously managed by the service provider.  

Shipments are processed through facilities controlled by the service provider, both at origin and destination. This system avoids the typical congestion at airport hubs, reduces overall transit time, and increases control.

The aircraft themselves offer unmatched flexibility to meet all cargo needs. Freighters have the capability to move normal and specialized cargo such as dangerous goods, oversized pieces, and shipments requiring refrigeration such as perishable and pharma.  

Lastly, a prime network of delivery options carries the cargo to its ultimate destination.

In early August JAS introduced BLUE WORLD ATLANTIC, a weekend roundtrip Flight Operation between Chicago and Frankfurt, utilizing B 747 – 400 F Nose-Load for optimum loading capabilities. The BLUE WORLD ATLANTIC prime schedule is the best solution for supporting customers in the transatlantic air freight corridor!

If your business could benefit from a regular flight operation in the transatlantic corridor contact a local JAS representative for more information.

In Times of Crisis, Customers Turn to the Agile and Responsive Expertise of JAS

A JAS Success Story in Moving PPE

By
August 18, 2020

Reduced global air cargo capacity, blank sailings, carrier solvency, increasing port congestion, and last-mile delivery delays are adding to an ever-growing riskier global environment that threatens supply chains.

Uncertain times often require creative measures. As shippers look to replenish inventory levels as well as budget logistics costs in such an unpredictable environment, partnering with a freight forwarder such as JAS helps to reduce such risks and cost concerns.

JAS has always worked closely with shippers to offer solutions that balance planning with responsiveness and agility. The COVID-19 pandemic highlights this need as shippers continue to benefit from the expertise of JAS during this crisis.

For several years, JAS Italy has worked with several Italian Government institutions by serving their logistics requirements. The relationship has become even closer during the pandemic as JAS took charge of a certain Italian Government institution’s import/export distribution process to obtain and distribute Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) commodities.

JAS initially arranged shipments from China, Brazil, and South Africa mainly through general cargo urgent flights. However, as demand dramatically increased, JAS recognized that the available market capacity was not meeting the needs of its customers. As a result, JAS ramped up the use of charter flights to better meet customer requirements.  

Since February, JAS has moved millions of masks along with protective suits, visors, gloves, respirators, pulmonary ventilators, test tubes, and swabs.

By chartering flights, JAS was able to help other customers as well. For example, a German-based provider of medical and hygiene products turned to JAS to supply N95 masks to the governments of Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands. JAS utilized multiple chartered flights from Shanghai to Frankfurt to distribute not only to the governments involved but also to pharmacies for wider distribution to non-governmental organizations and the public at large.

JAS was able to support customers in Peru, Colombia, and Mexico building southbound connections with the charter flights arriving to the USA from Asia.

The ability to rapidly charter flights between countries could not have been accomplished in such a quick and efficient manner without the expertise of the JAS World Air Freight Team (WAT) whose close relationship with a number of aircraft owners allowed JAS to find the right equipment, mostly 747-8 and 747-4 cargo planes, at the right time and in the right location for its customers.

Collaboration with JAS China was crucial as requirements for moving Personal Protection Equipment changed almost on a daily basis. Communication was a key success factor with JAS China establishing a daily communication channel to keep the whole JAS network up to date with the latest information.

JAS has now implemented full scheduled flight operations in the transatlantic corridor. Offering weekend flights from Chicago to Frankfurt and back.

JAS is also continuing special charter flights both with cargo aircraft or ghost flights from Shanghai to Chicago and from Hong Kong to Los Angeles.

JAS Places First Booking With Qatar Airways Cargo's We Qare Program

By
Stefano Redditi
August 17, 2020

Through the We Qare program, the airline is donating 1 million kilos of freight space on its airplanes to selected customers around the world to give to the charities of their choice.

JAS Worldwide took advantage of this fantastic program on behalf of the World Food Program and moved almost 50 tons of Personal Protective Equipment and supplies from Shanghai, China to Dhaka, Bangladesh at the end of July, free of charge.

“This was a great opportunity for JAS to support the World Food Program” says Salvatore Lauro the head of JAS Aid & Relief division.

The whole JAS organization is thankful to Qatar Airways Cargo for the initiative, together we made the difference!

JAS Supports Countries Reopening Around the World

By
May 22, 2020

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 info@jas.com or reach out to your local JAS representative for more information.

JAS Responds to Air Cargo Shortage

April 13, 2020

On Sunday, March 22nd, JAS Worldwide launched flight operations between Frankfurt (FRA) to the Rickenbacker International Airport near Columbus, Ohio (LCK) with on-forwarding services continuing to LATAM. JAS Worldwide is dedicated to meeting customer demand during the Covid-19 situation by launching additional flight operations in the most important air corridors:

  • Europe to USA and back to Europe
  • China to the USA
  • China to Europe

JAS, the Atlanta-headquartered global freight forwarding and logistics provider, maintains that the goal is to help address the immediate needs of customers who had previously relied on routine air cargo flights between the US and Europe. JAS is enhancing its air service offerings as a result of the worldwide coronavirus pandemic, which is having a dramatic impact on capacity in the airfreight market.

“Because of the volatility of the situation, JAS is bringing its considerable air freight experience to bear to meet the needs of our customers” said Gregor Vrhunc, Senior Vice President, Global Head of Air Freight.

JAS utilizes 747 freighters to meet the heightened demand in key air corridors.

JAS Order Management Solutions

By
Jessica Motley
November 23, 2019

JAS Worldwide knows that the further upstream your company's visibility is with your supply chain, the more opportunities there are to make decisions to alleviate or even avoid pain points caused by uncontrollable factors in your supply chain. Giving companies more control and power over their supply chain can lead to reduced costs, increased visibility, reduced manual processes, reduced errors and reworks, and most importantly meeting your customer expectations.  

Order management(OM) is the administration of business processes related to purchase or sales orders for goods or services. OM promotes automation and the streamlining of order processing for businesses. OM service provides upstream visibility to order related activity from order inception to delivery at line item level.

Using OM can provide visibility and control to the upstream part of the supply chain process, allowing for decisions to be made to mitigate or even avoid uncontrollable downstream factors such as supplier & vendor discrepancies, manufacturing issues, and giving more visibly to the supplier processes. These upstream decisions can include adjustments in lead times for purchases, changes to purchase activity, and managing problem supplier activity.  Without OM, visibility is limited to the the downstream part of the process, limiting or possibly even eliminating the opportunity to make decisions that would mitigate against uncontrollable factors or issues that arise.

The benefits of upstream visibility are fewer shipments, improved consolidations, timing to meet expected date requirements, container utilization, planned consolidation, less LCL and more FCL, less Air Freight, all leading to reduced costs for JAS customers.

JAS provides a single portal for all visibility to all modules via JASTrack, increasing visibility. This offers customers standard and customized reports, order integrated bookings, online order administration, upstream milestone tracking, and order details and activity tracking that includes expected dates, quantities, shipment details, and container details.  The JAS OM includes online bookings tool with copy function, integration of order, booking, shipping, and receiving data, as well as the automation of documents, reducing manual processes.

To reduce errors and the need for reworking JAS uses EDI integrated Order Management, an integration of order, booking, shipping, and receiving data. This allows for the automation of documents and the re-use of data throughout process. Saving time, and generating more efficiency. This enables JAS customers to meet their customers expectations. Giving them expected dates management, expected quantity management, and quality control support processes.

Some additional benefits of JAS Order Management include identifying bottlenecks in the supply chain through visibility, communication, and reporting. All of which can help identify singular or repetitive issues that may be causing bottlenecks in the process. This visibility also lends to removing supply chain "black holes" making sure that there is no lack of visibility to any section of the supply chain process. Along with visibility, JAS Order Management also keeps logs of historical data in an organized and reportable fashion, providing empowerment to your company to make important decisions to resolve issues within your supply chain


Why choose JAS Order Management?
Being a global company, JAS has the presence available at origin to help you manage your orders directly with your suppliers. JAS is also able to levy the cost of advantages of consolidating your cargo into fewer containers through upstream visibility for better load planning. Additionally, with SKU level visiblity JAS OM allows you to manage your orders at the part level with seamless integration of order data in our web-based order and shipment tracker.
