The LOGISTXGAMES is an annual competition that promotes the logistics industry on the local, regional and national level. Now in its ninth year, the LOGISTXGAMES brings teams of warehouse warriors together in head-to-head competitions that build employee pride, establish teamwork principles and reinforce safety standards vital to the industry.
The LOGISTXGAMES truly offer something for everyone. Teams win by getting to strut their stuff for their coworkers and local and regional peers. Companies win by gaining a unique morale-booster and incentive for their employees and organizers win by gaining a unique networking and property-showcasing opportunity.

- Pick/Pack Hurdle – Three-person teams move boxes from the pallet to a warehouse racking system while memorizing positioning and SKUs in a timed race.
- Box Put –Teams will have packed one box with fragile bottled liquid items, in the Pallet Puzzle Sprint event, utilizing selected packaging material from various options. During the Box Put event one team member will then throw the box for distance and accuracy without breaking the contents.
