Global-Z International, a bureau specializing in the data processing of international mailing addresses for global direct marketers, has enhanced its Italy data-processing service – including the most current Italian postal codes – after the Italian postal authority, Poste Italiane, changed its postal code system.
Bennington, VT-based Global-Z said its Italy data-processing service is designed to help mailers update their Italian address files.
As many global postal authorities have done, Poste Italiane is enhancing its old postal-code system in pursuit of efficiency improvements. With this enhancement, which will continue through the year, the old Italy postal codes will not be available on Poste Italiane’s legacy processing and necessitate the manual processing of this mail. This postal-code update will benefit mailers using Poste Italiane with greater precision and speed delivering mail with updated postal codes.
Global-Z said that with the new postal-code system in place, mail with old, wrong or insufficient addresses would be processed as mail that has a non-existent address. As a result, the updated postal codes help assure delivery. This update includes Italian regions, provinces, municipalities and 8,500 neighborhoods, including all the streets of the 27 largest towns.
