In response to increased demand for Less than Container Load (LCL) services, JAS Worldwide is pleased to announce that it is launching a new weekly LCL service from the Port of Gothenburg (GOT) to Charleston, South Carolina, USA (CHS).  

The global maritime market is continuing to experience high levels of demand while facing a lack of capacity, increased port congestion, and a shortage of empty containers. This environment is driving the need for companies to find ways to optimize opportunities in their supply chains, and one way they are doing so is through LCL services.  

JAS is uniquely positioned to handle these and other ongoing marketplace stressors. Our LCL services are designed to provide the flexibility need in today’s environment helping customers keep their supply chains moving, while offering cost savings when compared to airfreight.  

“Customers taking advantage of our LCL services to Charleston benefit from fixed weekly sailing schedules with secure and flexible service from origin to destination.” said Brandon Miller, CHS Station Manager, JAS USA.  

Additional weekly LCL import services to CHS include:

  • LON (London, England)
  • HAM (Hamburg, Germany)
  • NHV (Nhava Sheva, India)
  • MAA (Madras, India)
  • SHA (Shanghai) and TW (Taiwan) via BUS (Busan)

Making its debut in Latin America in mid-April, the Airbus A220 created quite a stir. Prospective airline customers were drawn to the A220 as a cost-efficient solution.  

The allure of the Airbus A220 hit the new marketplace as part of a planned tour of the region.  

Owned by SWISS International Airlines, the A220 used for the expedition had planned stops in Argentina, Brazil, and Chile. The logistics management expertise of the JAS Brazil team was required for the A220’s inaugural stop in Brazil.  

Team members conducted a record operation with the Federal Revenue. In just three hours, the team obtained the required documentation, licenses, and organization of landings for demonstration. JAS Brazil also was responsible for coordinating the A220’s departure from Brazil to its next stop in Miami, Fla. The team is responsible for coordinating the re-export of the Airbus A220 following its departure until its return to its storage yard.  

It's not difficult to see why airlines in Latin America are interested in the Airbus A220. It is the only aircraft built for the 100 to 150-seat market. Additionally, it brings together Pratt & Whitney’s state-of-the-art aerodynamics, composite materials, and turbofan engines.  

The A220 features a 50 percent noise footprint reduction and lower fuel burn per seat compared to the previous generation aircraft. Another attractive quality is the 50 percent lower nitrous oxide (NOx) emissions than industry standards currently require.  

Currently, the A220 is Airbus’ main player for regional operations, with the possibility of a jet for long-haul routes. JAS Brazil is pleased to be a part of this unparalleled introduction into the Latin American marketplace and looks forward to furthering collaboration with Airbus.

To better address the needs of its rapidly growing customer base, JAS USA is pleased to announce the opening of a second warehouse facility in Houston, Texas, USA.

The new container freight station (CFS) bonded warehouse offers geographic advantages due to its prime location near the Port of Houston (HOU), home to the largest container port on the Gulf Coast.

The attractive location allows for dedicated contract carriage (DCC) boxes and even faster handling of inbound less-than-container load (LCL) cargo. Additionally, the new facility site is ideal for transloads/export container loading.

For importers seeking to re-route cargo to avoid the congestion and risks associated with the East and West Coasts, the Port of Houston is comparatively much less congested. However, it still allows for efficient connectivity throughout the United States due to Interstate Highways 10, 45, and 69.

Of the new warehouse opening, Linday Gambee Regional Sales Director SW, said “This warehouse is a huge strategic advantage for our customers. We look forward to utilizing all the advantages this new warehouse offers to the entire company and most importantly, to the JAS client base.”
