Enhanced Line of Travel (eLOT®)
The eLOT product allows mailers the ability to sort their mailings in approximate carrier-casing sequence.
Who is eLOT for?
The eLOT product was developed to give mailers the ability to sort their mailings in approximate carrier-casing sequence.
To aid in mail sortation, eLOT contains an eLOT sequence number field and an ascending/descending code. The eLOT sequence number indicates the first occurrence of delivery made to the add-on range within the carrier route, and the ascending/descending code indicates the approximate delivery order within the sequence number. eLOT processing may be used by mailers to qualify for enhanced carrier route presort discounts.
Note: The United States Postal Service® requires address lists to be processed through CASS Certified™ ZIP + 4® addressing-matching software before being processed against eLOT Product. Non ZIP + 4 coded records may not be used with this product.
