Postcodes to be considered ‘integral’ part of postal address – timesofmalta.comBy
That post codes are critical for modern postal operations should be self-evident, but postal systems aren’t often very good at telling the public (its customers!) why they are critical. I’ve spoken to people, postal customers, around the world, and they are very, very often surprised when I point out that the postal codes are critical to postal service accuracy and speed. There can be 2 or 3 “113 Rose Avenue”s in a city, without that “10590” at the end of one address, the Post has to guess.
And with all posts having to trim work forces and have more postal service rendered by machines, we’ve got to give the machines what they need to perform up to standard.
Use your postal code!
