Mr. Pranzetti has a Bachelor’s Degree in International Commerce, together with a Master Degree in Business Administration, and postgraduate degrees in Marketing & Psychology and Logistics. Having solid experience in the field, JAS Argentina is confident he will be a great asset to our Americas region.

Pranzetti said, "I look forward to working together in the years to come and remember, JAS Argentina is OPEN for Business".

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!

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.

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.

For more information contact your local JAS office.
