USPS Invents Words

I just got directed to the US Postal Service website to track a package, and here's what it told me:
03/30/2005 20:43:00 Sortation Center Departure DALLAS, TX 
03/30/2005 08:00:00 Sortation Center Arrival DALLAS, TX 
03/29/2005 10:48:09 Sortation Center Departure GROVE CITY, OH 
03/28/2005 19:19:10 Sortation Center Arrival GROVE CITY, OH 
03/28/2005 15:17:00 Pickup LOUISVILLE, KY

What kind of word is "Sortation"? Is that anything like "Flotation", another word that always makes me think evil thoughts? Stop with the neologisms, just use "Sorting", and no one will get hurt, USPS.
