Address Materials and Programs

This page and the materials here are provided as a public service to promote the development of efficient address systems to facilitate cost-effective delivery of letters and parcels by postal systems, private carriers, and express services.  Address databases and location technologies are fundamental for any economy, and increasingly so as e-commerce tools and the Internet in general can bring together buyers and sellers on a global basis.
