Delivery point barcodes (DPBC)

Definition:

The delivery point barcode, or DPBC, is a line of short and tall bars that helps identify a mailing's exact destination.

This line is often printed at the bottom of mail and significantly reduces the time it takes carriers to sort letter mail before delivery.

Bulk mailings that are CASS™ certified and have the DPBC pre-printed correctly may be eligible for significant postage discounts.

Address verification software can return these barcodes for any verified U.S. address and thus save companies money while increasing the speed at which mail will arrive.
