3PLs have grown in importance with the explosion in ecommerce, provided much-needed services for companies that lack the in-house resources to fulfill and ship orders on their own. This is why Multichannel Merchant created this unique resource to help them vet ecommerce-qualified, experienced 3PLs. The online resource is a searchable directory for merchants looking for a qualified provider.

“Because so many ecommerce and DTC merchants today are experiencing rapid growth, they quickly outgrow their own internal fulfillment capabilities and seeking outside help,” said Mike O’Brien, Senior Content Manager of Multichannel Merchant. “Each company has been selected based on industry experience, services offered and ability to handle high order flow.”

The company profiles in the MCM Top 3PL listing include vital information to help merchants in their selection process, including key capabilities, average annual client order volume, top merchandise categories handled, facility locations and more.


Since 1976, PBD Worldwide has become a leader in fulfillment and distribution services for e-commerce companies, retailers, corporations, publishers, associations, non-profits and faith-based organizations.  PBD's nationwide fulfillment network now includes six facilities strategically located across the United States in an effort to reduce transportation spend for their clients while cutting down delivery times to customers.  Fully integrated and scalable fulfillment and freight services help companies simplify operations and reduce costs while delivering a unified order experience.

"It is an honor for PBD to be recognized as one of the top 3PL providers for multichannel merchants for the fifth consecutive year,"
said Greg Dockter, Senior Vice President of PBD Worldwide. 

By choosing PBD, companies are entrusting us with their most valuable asset, their customers.  We do not take this responsibility lightly.  In addition, our variety of business divisions add value and cost savings for our partners through a single source." 

PBD's service offerings spread far beyond the warehouse with Freight Scouts, Printovate, and SWAG. 

  • Freight Scouts is the non-asset transportation brokerage division of PBD Worldwide focused on delivering freight solutions for Truckload, Less-than-Truckload, Parcel and Import/Export shipments. These services complement PBD's warehousing and fulfillment services, but also standalone to provide shippers with unmatched value and cost-savings for their overall transportation spend. 
  • As a single source marketing communications solution, Printovate helps brands get their message out and continue to grow their business. Rapid Ink's solutions complement PBD's current print and mail services with an enhanced portfolio of solutions including creative services, offset print, signage, large format printing, conference/event solutions and promotional services.
  • PBD's promotional products division, SWAG Promo, is a perfect complement to source additional items for internet retailers to solidify their branding.
