Livingston InternationalLivingston International’s freight forwarding and consulting services help companies overcome tariffs and other shipping challenges.

By Jim Harris, Senior Editor at Knighthouse Media

Companies involved in international trade have come to expect the unexpected in recent months. The renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), tariffs imposed by the United States on imported goods and retaliatory tariffs on exported U.S. goods, the trucking shortage and the realignment of sea carriers are all keeping importers and exporters on their toes.

“Fluidity is the new normal. Ongoing trade disputes have come into the public arena very quickly and may just as quickly fizzle or become catalysts for a global trade war,” says David Rish, president of global trade management for Livingston International. “There is tension even between close partners. This does not mean that trade will end or borders will shut down, but it does mean that the status quo has changed for the foreseeable future.

“However, there is a path forward by analyzing one’s supply chain, creating options and what-if scenarios and running financial calculations with regard to duty impact,” he says. “Trade uncertainty does not have to be fatally disruptive to one’s business.”


MaddenMadden’s integrated approach to logistics, warehousing, production and other services for retail marketing support its clients’ growth efforts.
By Jim Harris, Senior Editor at Knighthouse Publishing

A successful promotional campaign includes a great deal of elements including neon signs, store fixtures and displays, merchandise, apparel, printed materials and more. Managing agencies, vendors, distribution and channel partners for these elements can be a daunting task. It can be particularly challenging for professionals trained in marketing and not supply chain management. 

“Typically, the people who manage these programs are marketing folks trained in consumer behavior and product management,” says Sean Madden, CEO of supply chain solutions provider Madden. “These are professionals who are hired to come up with strategic growth ideas for their companies, but end up spending much of their time managing all the tasks of execution instead.”

Madden specializes in the execution side of retail promotional marketing, including developing, designing, sourcing and fulfillment of materials. The company has developed a technology platform to provide actionable data and visibility into this integrated supply chain. 


SUNRUNSunrun reimagines its supply chain as an organization to drive expansion and create  advantage in the residential solar system market.

By Tim O’Connor

The first solar cells that could power electronic devices were created in 1954 at Bell Laboratories. But the use of sunshine to generate electricity for the home has become widespread only in the past two decades. 

The industry is still young and it’s still volatile. Technological breakthroughs are making solar panels more efficient every year and government regulations and building codes are always in flux. Successful solar companies must be able to adapt to those changing trends and requirements. 

Sunrun, one of the leading companies in the residential solar system market, believes an effective supply chain gives it an edge as the industry matures. “The supply chain’s ability to react quickly will be a key differentiator for Sunrun as we move forward,” Director of Supply Chain Zac Beres says.
