Details

El código postal es un esquema que asigna a distintas zonas o lugares de un país un código, que junto con la dirección sirven para facilitar y mecanizar el encaminamiento de un objeto postal (una pieza de correo como una carta, un sobre, un paquete o cualquier elemento que necesite ser llevado a un lugar).

No reemplaza la dirección, sino que la complementa para facilitar la entrega de un envío.
