JAS Aerospace Mexico Transports Helicopters

July 21, 2020

In late June and early July 2020 JAS Aerospace Mexico transported 3 Helicopters from a Helicopter School located in Veracruz Airport (General Heriberto Jara) to Mexico City, Benito Juarez Airport, Terminal 2.

This moved took place between June the 30th 2020 & July the 1st 2020. This transport required 2 flat bed trucks to be used to transport the 3 Helicopters. Besides managing logistics of the domestic trucking required to make this transport possible, JAS Aerospace Mexico was also in charge of handling the crane required to load the cargo at the origin as well as unload at the destination. The loading took around 4 hours of operation time, plus 3 hours for unloading.

The mission was a total success, the 3 Helicopters were delivered on time and without any issue. These Helicopters are used for training and have 2 passengers cabin seating in each. With maximum take off gross weight of 794kg, empty weight (standard configuration) 500kg, with a useful load of 294kg. They are 6.76mt long, 1.99mt wide, and have a height of 2.65mt.

"Supplying this type of service is always a challenge. We can´t afford any damage to the Helicopters. We must do things slow, with all the planning done in advance, making sure to have the right vendors, and we  always have JAS personnel on site to make sure we do everything in the safest manner possible. Failure is not an option." Francisco Robles, National Aerospace Manager, JAS Mexico

These type of shipments are part of the Aerospace services JAS Mexico have been promoting since August 2019. Allowing JAS customers to achieve their goals, on time, and without concern. These are some of the characteristics of the Helicopters:

JAS Ensures Safety of Live Chicks

Longtime JAS Partnership Works to Ensure Security of Live Chicks Amidst Pandemic

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.

February 14, 2019

The JAS Aid & Relief Logistic office based in Rome, IT, recently delivered an urgent supply of ebola vaccines to a high profile humanitarian agency in Entebbe, Uganda. This shipment is a fundamental step for the vaccination campaign aimed to defeat ebola in the D.R. Congo and will cover the needs of thousands of people.

The transportation carried 345 pallets for a total of 65,50 tons and 320 CBM. JAS Aid & Relief Logistics had to move the medications from Germany to Uganda in the fastest possible way. This was achieved by reaching Liege airport, Belgium, where a dedicated hired charter B747-400F aircraft was ready to fly directly to Entebbe airport, Uganda.

Vaccines were successfully delivered in less than a couple of days from origin warehouse to destination, providing a punctual service, crucial in these situations.

Integrated Logistics to Remote Destinations

By
April 23, 2018

With road conditions and the situation continuing to remain volatile in the eastern part of the Central African Republic, the flow of relief cargo to the area has been steadily hampered.

Mali, Somalia, Democratic Republic of Congo, and Southern Sudan are destinations where the need of relief cargo is dire, and difficult to traverse.  

The Yemen war has been defined as the world's worst humanitarian crisis, with the conflict continuing on since 2015. This war creates limited logistic availability when it comes to relief cargo getting to the locations where it is most needed.

At JAS Aid & Relief we strive to deliver relief cargo to those in need, to remote locations, and hard to get to areas.

We are available 24/7 to support any demand in emergency logistics. Contact us today to discuss how we can help you reach those in need.
