Air Transport Services Group, (ATSG) says its subsidiary, LGSTX Services, has been awarded a contract with the US Postal Service (USPS) to design, install and operate a Surface Transfer Center (STC) in Aurora, Illinois.
The STC facility provides an automated capability for sorting and consolidating US postal products before further distribution. The company expects the facility to be operational in May 2020.
Design and integration of the material handling and sortation equipment will be handled by LGSTX subsidiary, TriFactor Solutions, while LGSTX will organise and manage the operation of the facility. The company has extensive experience operating STC facilities for the Postal Service, having managed multiple centers between 2004 and 2018.
“We are honoured to be awarded this new US Postal Service location,” says Jim Pradetto, president of LGSTX Services. “The level of expertise we developed while operating STC facilities in Dallas, Memphis and Indianapolis gives us the ability to start up quickly, with state-of-the-art material handling systems, and deliver consistently high quality service to the customer from day one.”
LGSTX Services specialises in providing material handling equipment and conveyor services, facility maintenance services, aviation ground support equipment services, and distribution services to customers in more than 400 locations worldwide.
