Name: 5th Annual Hampton Roads LogistXGames
Date: June 7, 2018
Time: 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM EDT
Event Description:
Annual competition for logistics industry teams and fundraiser to support workforce programs at Paul D. Camp Community College and Tidewater Community College. This annual competition is aimed at team building, raising awareness, and providing networking for logistics employees while promoting the logistics industry locally, regionally and nationally. Net proceeds will help fund scholarships for workforce programs at Paul D. Camp Community College and Tidewater Community College. “The funds raised during this event are critical for our workforce students,” said PDCCC Vice President of Institutional Advancement and Workforce Development. “In many cases, finances are an issue. Having some assistance can mean the difference between whether or not a potential student is able to enroll.” The following four events will take place for logistics industry teams at the 2018 competition: • The Pallet Puzzle Sprint – Three-person teams each take 36 different-sized corrugated boxes from floor locations, assemble them and stack them on a pallet. The team with the quickest time wins. • Pallet Jack Relay – Three-person teams participate in a timed pallet jack relay race through an obstacle course while keeping the boxes on the pallet. • 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. Last year, Givens won first place, Keurig Green Mountain earned second and Emser Tile came in third.
