What are the uses of a Zip Code?
Lets do some better explanations here so that you can understand zip codes and what they are used for. I classic example I would like to give is; Let say you send a parcel to your sibling whose name is “Sampson Gaddah” in a school which is called ” Happy International School”. Now, if you address the parcel with only ” Sampson” as the recipient, there might be a great confusion if it unfortunately happens that the school have 2 or more students as “Sampson”. To prevent the occurrence of such situations, both the first name and second name has to be present on the parcel. So that there can be a clear distinction between Sampson Gaddah, Sampson Asim and Samspon Hayford.
This is the same issue zip codes seeks to solve when parcels are sent. There are many cities in the world that has the same name. And so when parcels are sent, zip codes helps a lot to identify the exact state or city the parcel is intended for. Also some people genuinely makes mistakes when writing names of cities or states on a parcel. Hence, the use of zip code helps to make up for the mistake done.
The United States Post Office (USPS) recommends that Zip codes should be written on parcels to make it easier for sorting and mailing.
