“The games are fun,” said Kevin Grove, founder of the games and senior vice president of commercial real estate firm, CB Richard Ellis, “but there’s a serious purpose – and that is to publicize the importance of logistics and distribution, and to encourage more investment and development in this vital economic sector. ”

Started in Louisville in 2007, the games consist of a series of events in which teams compete to claim the ultimate prize, The Golden Pallet. The Games expanded in 2010 to include Indianapolis and Cincinnati and in 2014, East Brunswick, New Jersey, and Hampton Roads, Virginia, were added to the regional qualifying cities. The fun continues to spread!
