Jeans for Genes Day!

The Logistex Head Office donned our jeans for the day on Friday in support of Jeans for Genes.  As well as donating to wear our jeans to work, the Logistex team were busy at home in the kitchen in preparation for The Logistex Bake-Off.

Bake off entries

The Bake-Off was judged by our very own Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry in the form of two of our Directors. The cakes were judged against a variety of criteria including taste, blueness and, of course, soggy bottom. The competition was so close that the judges had to have seconds… and then thirds… just to be sure. After a tense half an hour, the final decision was made. The winners of the 2015 Logistex Bake-Off were:

1st – Tajal Katargamwala
2nd – Ian Carr
3rd – Helena Terry

Luckily there was enough cake left over after the judging process for the rest of us to have a piece (or three) in return for a donation to Jeans for Genes. Congratulations also to the Jeans for Genes quiz winners; Derek Kay, Liz Mortlock and Jonathan Skelly! The staff raised £173.45 through their efforts. This was then generously matched (and topped up) by the company to give a grand total of £375 to this great cause.

1 in 25 children has a genetic disorder that makes their life very difficult. The money raised by organisations and schools on Jeans for Genes Day funds a range of initiatives that improve the quality of life of children and families affected by genetic disorders. If you’d like to find out more about Jeans for Genes Day and how you can get involved, please visit their website at

2 week countdown to the eCommerce expo!

It’s full steam ahead for the Reflex team over the next couple of weeks as we prepare for the upcoming eCommerce Expo. New brochures, new freebies and a live hands-on demo, it’s set to be a great show!

The Reflex team will be on stand 421 at London Olympia on Wednesday 30 September and Thursday 1 October showcasing our LWS Reflex Warehouse Management System.  The stand will boast a fully operational demo, giving visitors a complete hands-on experience of what LWS Reflex has to offer, and allowing them to order, pick, pack and despatch goods (and to take away some sweets and freebies as well!).

Alongside the Warehouse Management System, we will be displaying and demonstrating our business intelligence dashboard, Analytex, which provides full operational warehouse data on screen in graphical, easy to read detail.

Mark and Ian will be on the stand for the duration of the expo so come by and say hello! Register free below:
