ATSG Wins Contract for Flower Sortation Center

Air Transport Services Group, Inc. announced today that its subsidiary, TriFactor Solutions LLC, has been awarded a contract to design and install a multi-divert sortation system in Xenia, Ohio, for Passion Growers LLC of Miami.

The project includes the design and installation of an automated system to sort inbound cases for Passion Growers’ shipping operation, improving its overall fulfillment rate to customers.

Passion Growers’ commitment to conserving energy, reducing waste, and supporting sustainable agriculture and distribution options led to its choice of TriFactor Solutions to design the sortation system at its new Xenia warehouse, which is expected to open in November 2020.

"Partnering with Passion Growers to develop and install its new sortation system reflects the trust and operational understanding we have developed over years of working together," said Jim Pradetto, president of TriFactor Solutions. "The success of other sortation systems we have developed with them has given us the knowledge to create a new one to handle the myriad product types that Passion Growers distributes, ensuring their consistently high level of customer service."
