Delivery Address Format - definition(s)

Delivery Address Format - Address elements required by the USPS on all mailpieces - that is, the intended recipient's name; either general delivery, a house or building number and street name (plus apartment/suite number, if applicable), or a post office box number or rural route or highway contract route designation with a box number; and city, state or state abbreviation, and ZIP Code or ZIP+4. Placement of this information on the mailpiece determines the dimension considered the length of letter-size mail. (Compare with alternative addressing format.)
