Logistical excellence

Contestants compete in the packaging event.

A Henrico County venue hosted the first RVA LogistXGames Jan. 29, pitting supply chain and logistics industry employees together in a friendly competition designed to judge the teamwork, talent, efficiency and speed of participating teams as they assembled and stacked boxes, moved them through relay courses on pallets and performed other warehouse-type tasks.

The Fort Lee – Joint Strike Group won the event and claimed the “Golden Pallet.” The event was sponsored by CBRE Richmond, Liberty Property Trust, the Community College Workforce Alliance and the Virginia Port Authority. The event was held at a Liberty Property Trust facility on Eastport Boulevard in Sandston.

The LogistXGames were created and first held in Louisville, Ky., in 2007 as a way to build employee pride, reinforce safety standards and foster teamwork.
