What is a ZIP Code and how do they work?

ZIP Codes are 5-digit numbers developed by the United States Postal Service (USPS) to represent individual post offices across the United States. A ZIP Code is just the name of the postal code system for the United States.

There are three main parts of the 5-digit ZIP Code - the national area, the region or city, and the delivery area. The United States Postal Service has segmented the country into 10 ZIP Code areas. Starting in the northeast, they are numbered 0-9.

The first digit of the ZIP Code is allocated as follows:

How to Read a ZIP Code?

After the first number in a ZIP Code is assigned, the USPS assigns the next two numbers according to a city. If a region has a main town or city, the USPS will often assign it the first ZIP Codes. After that, the ZIP Codes will proceed alphabetically.

The first three digits of a ZIP Code together usually indicate the sectional center facility to which that ZIP Code belongs. This facility is the mail sorting and distribution center for a zone or area. Some sectional center facilities have multiple three-digit codes assigned to them.

The fourth and fifth digits of the ZIP Code represent the area of the city or town.
