Livingston International Expands Global Trade Management Services in Key Emerging Markets
Regional Livingston teams in India and Brazil now meet clients’ local needs by managing providers and customs processes in accordance with local import and export requirements, ensuring an efficient and compliant supply chain. Livingston helps clients to achieve benefits by using local systems and obtaining duty relief through various trade programs.
Livingston’s global trade management operation helps companies who want to import and export goods make the right sourcing decisions, be proactive to changes in the global trade environment, link trade compliance with business needs, use free trade agreements to their advantage, minimize duty and delays, and stay ahead of the competition. The division’s global footprint enables it to offer solutions that are tailored to clients’ individual import and export trade operational needs.
“Livingston’s presence in these markets provides clarity and ensures consistent compliance for our clients as they expand their global footprint,” said Matt Goodman, president of Livingston’s global trade management operation. “Expanding our services in these countries allows us to advance our clients’ supply chain as effectively as possible and remain on the forefront of changing trade regulations and free-trade deals that will save them time and money.”
Bringing its full suite of services to these emerging markets means Livingston is positioned to provide on-the-ground support and expertise to its clients looking to expand in these markets. As members of the largest emerging market economies, Brazil and India are especially significant countries for companies seeking to expand their business, according to Goodman.
The decision to expand services in India and Brazil was driven by client demand and an increase in production and trade activity in these countries, Goodman said. Earlier this year Livingston International restructured its global trade management division to stay ahead of opportunities expected from several free-trade agreements in negotiations now.
