Zip Codes

US ZIP codes are a type of postal code used within the United States to help the United States Postal Service (USPS)


The term ZIP, an acronym for Zone Improvement Plan, was chosen to suggest that the mail travels more efficiently, and therefore more quickly (zipping along), when senders use the code in the postal address.
