Riverside Logistics joined seven other teams from the region’s top logistics firms to compete in the 2015 RVA LogistXGames. The friendly but fierce competition included events similar to those performed daily in the logistics work environment…but with fun twists. Events included the Pallet Puzzle Sprint, Pallet Jack Relay, Pick/Pack Hurdle and Box Put. Teamwork, talent, efficiency and speed were all essential components for success.
Sponsored by CBREI/Richmond, the Community College Workforce Alliance (CCWA) and the Virginia Port Authority, the event is designed to showcase the talents of employees in this business sector, as well as emphasize the importance of logistics and distribution to the region. The proceeds, which surpassed $10,000.00, will support workforce development programs available through the Community College Workforce Alliance.
Michael Kenny, Director of Warehouse Operations at Riverside Logistics, organized the Riverside team and was pleased with their results. At the conclusion of the event Michael stated, “This was the first time we participated in such an event. It gave our guys an opportunity to show off some of their many skills. We didn’t win but according to one of the founders of the program, our speed and teamwork on the obstacle course led to one of the fastest completion times he had ever seen! It was great fun and the team is looking forward to participating again next year.”
