Typhoon Troubles in China
China Typhoon Troubles

Typhoon Muifa is expected to hit Shanghai today. This comes just ten days after Super Typhoon Hinnamnor hammered the area. Analysts say that while they don't expect too much damage, Muifa, while a smaller storm, is slow-moving and will compound delays.

Railroads are facing a strike

A provisional deal has been endorsed by 10 of the twelve rail unions. The impact of a strike might be felt by tens of thousands of workers.

Nothing beats working with a group of people who like celebrating one other's accomplishments and volunteering whenever feasible, except perhaps the festivities involve making personalized pizzas, breakfast burritos, and box boats.

Summer Means Success with JA Frate

The New York Times recently ran an editorial discussing the loneliness and regulations of life on the road. Drivers are key to ensuring goods reach retailers in time for holidays. The US started 2022 80,000 drivers short of what they needed. There are still 3.36 million truck drivers in the US alone.

Servicing Success with the Dependable Difference

Our divisions are working in tandem to offer complete supply chain services while being committed to the overall mission of providing great customer care. For our importers, we can source service providers for containers to be transloaded at port or to a JA Logistics warehouse and also source a trucker to linehaul that freight to the receiver.

Transloading

Analysts expect it to get worse before it gets better. 260,000 TEU of containers were recently released from a locked-down Shanghai set to hit US ports soon. Port congestion and transloading issues only going to get more complicated. Let's get it done together at JA Frate and JA Logistics.

The Carrier of the Year Award

JA Frate has won The Carrier of the Year Award - Illinois Branch for the fifth consecutive year. Every employee is responsible for maintaining the highest levels of service and integrity. It's that respect and integrity with which we treat all our employees that drive success.

Invest in Us and We’ll Invest in You

The Green to Gold program not only puts you in the driver's seat, but it also empowers you to become the dependable difference-maker you're meant to be!

Transloading with Expertise

Transloading increases efficiency by creating a central point from where cargo can span out in different directions when delivering to retail or end destination.

Warehousing with the Dependable Difference

With our warehouses, you can store your products in bulk so that you don’t have to worry about inventory being stuck in a port bottleneck when supplies run low.

Oversized Load? No Problem!

They say big things come in small packages. But what happens when the package is oversized and needs to get from point A to point B?

Our New Waukegan Warehouse

Here at JA Frate we are proud to announce the Grand Opening of our new warehouse facility, located at 1696 Lakeside Dr.
