Scott & Suzanne Bawcom, two of the stars of the upcoming A&E reality TV series Shipping Wars, have a combined net worth of $500 thousand. Their net worth has been accumulated in the independent shipping business, which is the subject of the A&E show. Basically, the Bawcoms make their living by shipping unusual items to and from various locations – items that are too large, unwieldy, or dangerous to be shipped by traditional methods. Scott has no reason to shy away from that sort of challenge, though, especially if you consider what his previous line of work was: Diffusing explosives for the Marines in Iraq. Scott doesn't run his independent shipping business alone, though – he has help from his wife Suzanne and his son Josh. Suzanne handles the bidding and booking portion of the business, Josh handles accounts, while Scott drives the truck. Not to be forgotten, their daughter Ashley is responsible for customer service. Together, the Bawcoms have managed to form one of the most successful and lucrative independent shipping businesses in the country, and it's sure to grow even more with the publicity that will accompany their participation in the reality TV show Shipping Wars. No matter how you slice it, things are going well for the Bawcoms.
