A look at the present world trade scenario reveals that half of the global merchandise trade takes place between ASEM countries. For trading partners, the importance of reliable and efficient logistics performance and seamless connectivity cannot be underplayed to keep pace with customer demands and obtain export competitiveness. Alongside, a supply chain partner who has command over the challenging markets of Asia, including China, Vietnam and Korea and Europe is paramount. It is not often that a supply chain management services company is described as being both, logistics experts for Asia and Europe, but JUSDA perfectly fits the bill.
With roots that trace back to being established to manage the Hon Hai/Foxconn Supply Chain, the world’s largest contract electronics manufacturer, JUSDA’s strong presence in China makes it the go-to-logistics services provider for companies operating in the trade hubs of Asia and Europe.
Headquartered in the Czech Republic, JUSDA Europe has been leveraging their Eurasian expertise and innovative business models for over 17 years. JUSDA has always been focused on providing high-quality solutions, underpinned with excellent customer service. “We offer logistics, warehousing, and transportation services that take into account the specific requirements of customers and exceed their expectations in terms of speed, on-time delivery, traceability, predictability, regulatory compliances, safety and security,” says Petr Škoda, General Manager of JUSDA Europe. JUSDA identifies the optimal supply chain solution and designs a configuration that best suits the customer requirement while maintaining control over the various steps in their resilient supply chain from the point of origin of goods to the final destination.
Under the broad spectrum of JUSDA’s services are warehousing, budgeting, and special services. JUSDA’s range of exclusive services from customer service, customs brokerage, insurance to inventory optimisation increase operational efficiency that results in the seamless flow of products in the supply chain.
Additionally, with two warehousing facilities in the Netherlands, JUSDA’s value-added warehousing services include storage handling, regulatory compliance, safety and security tailored to customer requirements.
We offer logistics services, warehousing, and transportation services that meet the specific requirements of customers in terms of speed, on-time delivery, traceability and safety.
“Our differentiation is in offering integrated solutions that provide continuous visibility and real-time coverage by predicting the position of every container such that the customer is alerted when there is a delay anywhere in the supply chain,” points out Škoda. Facilitating the smooth delivery of goods is the company’s supplier collaboration tool, an amalgamation of their warehouse management system and transport management system. The solution enables a real-time overview of the end-to-end performance of the supply chain right from raw materials to finished goods and its distribution.
The company’s efficient and reliable transportation services encompass air, ocean, road and rail. JUSDA has a predominant focus on rail freight transport services, which, according to Škoda, has the upper hand with regards to cost and time. Consider the case study of a networking hardware company that highlights the value proposition of rail freight. The client approached JUSDA to design a solution that would help them to reduce greenhouse gas emission as well as trade costs. JUSDA’s team carefully analysed the requirement and decided to move some of their air shipments to more eco-friendly rail services. The change not only generated 34,3K metric tonnes reduction of emissions per year but also delivered a savings of around 10 million U.S dollars per annum in freight costs.
As a responsive and customer-oriented company, JUSDA aims to continue its commanding position as an expert in the supply chain by ramping-up their services with the latest visualisation, prediction and optimisation. JUSDA envisions to enhance its solutions enabling customers to ascertain the whereabouts of their products every minute and get an overview across all levels by connecting all stakeholders in the ecosystem. The company continues to strengthen its position of staying ahead of others in the market with its unmatched logistics services built on speed and flexibility.
