40 Years of Innovation, Collaboration and Leadership. 

Over its 40 years of providing outsourced fulfillment solutions for retailers, corporations, and nonprofits worldwide, PBD Worldwide has strived to continuously add complementary services and solutions to amplify the core business. We consider ourselves more than just 'the warehouse' and look for ways to strategically expand the relationship with our clients.

And so, Freight Scouts was born.

Freight Scouts is the non-asset transportation brokerage division of PBD Worldwide. Freight Scouts focuses on delivering exceptional freight solutions for clients for Truckload, Less-than-Truckload and Parcel shipping. These services complement the warehousing and fulfillment services offered by PBD Worldwide, but also standalone to provide shippers with unmatched value and cost-savings for their overall transportation spend.

Whether it's a hot trade show delivery or a routine LTL shipment, Freight Scouts will match the need to the best carrier partner for the job...we'll make sure it's done at the right cost. Our reputation rides on the promise of 'Exceptional Service' every time, not just sometimes.



Exceptional Service Every Time

At Freight Scouts, we believe in providing our Shippers and Carriers with the highest level of service, which is achieved through our transparency, dedication to developing long-term partnerships and hiring the very best scouting agents.
