About Us

In 1967, Gilscot Forwarding Company was established by Helen Guillot-Scott in New Orleans, Louisiana. After years of building the company’s success, Helen passed the business on to her nephew, Keith Guidroz, Sr. In 1995, the company was renamed to Gilscot-Guidroz International Company, Inc.

Ensuring our service standards are of excellent value, we have partnered with leading international associations and networks. Our memberships include the National Customs Brokers & Forwarders Associations of America, Inc., the Traffic and Transportation Clubs, the World Trade Center, International Maritime Chamber of Commerce, World Cargo Alliance (WCA), WCA First, WCA China Global, WCA Dangerous Goods and All World Shipping.

Today, as a fully licensed freight forwarder, custom broker, Ocean Transportation Intermediary (OTI) and Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier (NVOCC), we are certified to handle complex and diverse shipment coordinations, including hazardous goods. The expertise and professionalism of our staff provides clients a seamless interface and one-on-one experience, every time.

At Gilscot-Guidroz International, we have spent many decades laying a foundation for long-term success. We continually strive to develop, innovate and improve our shipping services and industry relationships.
