In order for mail to be sorted as quickly as possible with the least possible human intervention, it is important to follow some basic rules as described below:

  1. The address must be written in the correct way.
  2. Envelope of specific types which are compatible with the mail sorting machine should be used.
  3. The surface of the envelopes and postcards should be used in the right way for clearly indicating the addressee and the sender and for affixing or imprinting stamps.

Therefore, for best and fastest service, please follow these basic rules!
