More than $19,000 raised at IAM Pack-a-Palooza!

October 22, 2019 | 3:21pm

At this year's International Association of Movers meeting in Chicago, we organized the first-ever Pack-A-Palooza competition, presented by Enterprise Database Corporation. Moving professionals from around the globe faced-off to see who could load a corregated liftvan with empty boxes the fastest.

But experience only counts for so much when you're in the spotlight and racing against the clock! Teams of 2 had to scan a series of boxes with Enterprise Database Corporation's inventory app and load them into the lift van. They had to use all of the boxes they were provided, and the boxes all had to be level. When they had finished packing the van, both team members had to ring a buzzer to officially stop the clock.

When all was said and done, the team from Sourdough Transfer came in first place and are now, officially, the fastest packers in the world!

More than $19,000 was raised at the event to support our hunger relief and food rescue programs. And none of it would have been possible without the support of Enterprise Database Corporation and our sponsors from FlateRate Moving, Dewitt Move Worldwide, and Victory Packaging, who generously devoted the boxes and lift vans. Thank you all for your support!
