JAS is a privately owned international freight forwarder and logistics provider. During its thirty-plus year history,
JAS has experienced exponential growth based on the vision and energy of its founder Mr. Biagio Bruni, who
today remains Chairman. JAS has built a global network of quality offices that deliver a consistent level of high
service and performance to its customers.
The company was founded in 1978 in Milan, Italy. From modest beginnings by the late 1980’s JAS had
expanded its offices in Europe and the Far East to include Milan, Rome, Florence and Tokyo to meet the
demands of its growing customer base. By 1988 JAS became the #1 ranked IATA Freight Forwarder in Italy.
In the 1990’s JAS was expanding into the Americas with the opening of a network of offices both in North and
South America. At the 25 years anniversary meeting held in 2003, the office network had grown to
representation in over 62 countries with more than 1500 employees.
While Europe and the USA can be expected to play a huge role in our organization, significant importance has
been set lately on expanding our coverage within the Asia Pacific Region.
​JAS has also made significant investment in the Latin America markets. Unlike the majority of freight
companies JAS invested in company owned offices in major markets in that region in the early days of our
In 2016 and 2017 JAS established alliances with authorized agents which further established JAS as a global
forwarder, expanding to over 100 countries.
JAS goes beyond the fundamentals by reminding customers of its commitment to sustainability issues such as
environmental responsibilities, health & safety, social responsibility, security, and ethics.
