July 10, 2018 - Madison's Lumber Reporter and Forest2Market have officially launched the redesigned, digital version of Madison's Weekly Lumber Reporter. Madison's North American lumber price reporting service is now exclusively available via SilvaStat360, Forest2Market's online business intelligence platform.

The Madison's/Forest2Market partnership combines Madison's lumber price data and market insights with Forest2Market's SilvaStat360 cloud-based interactive delivery platform. Madison's Lumber Reporter subscribers now have fingertip access to historic and current lumber price data that is updated weekly and available on a 24/7/365 basis.

Kéta Kosman, publisher of the Reporter, said, "As the North American lumber industry continues to evolve amid the uncertainty associated with global trade policy, operators need access to the most reliable datasets and analytics available to the market. Madison's new digital environment provides our customers with the on-demand information that is most important to them, which allows them to make better business decisions in a highly competitive and dynamic market."

Other features of the new product include:

"This final product is a real accomplishment for both Madison's and Forest2Market," said Pete Stewart, president and chief executive officer of Forest2Market. "We are excited to bring another partner to our SilvaStat360 platform, and we look forward to new opportunities to serve the North American lumber industry."
