    IntroductionPostNL is pleased to provide you with advice regarding all your international direct mail activities. To make your direct mail campaign a success, you need to reach the right target group. A carefully selected address list is therefore essential. The use of a correct address and postcode structure is also important. This brochure is intended to help you use the correct address details per country.

    By using the correct addressing method, you prevent any irritation on the part of the receiver and you increase the attention value of your mailings. Mail items are sorted automati-cally by a growing number of postal services. You can prevent mail handling delays by using addresses correctly and by using the correct postcode.The address type differs per country. The structure of the address, the position and the number of postcode characters depend on national customs and automated systems. In this brochure, you can find information on:

    the structure of the address elements in the correct order; whether or not to use postcodes for a country; the postcode structure; the meaning of the postcode characters.

    The information provided in this brochure is taken from the coordinating body of postal services, the Universal Postal Union, and includes details provided by the 189 member countries. PostNL accepts no liability with respect to the correctness and completeness of these details. Several countries have not made any details available.
