Automated Zone Indicator (AZI) Table

The AZI table lists each five-digit ZIP Code™ and is an indicator of the type of processing that typically takes place on letter mail destined for each ZIP Code. Each number in the file is a ZIP Code appended with a numeric zone indicator. The five numeric indicators are as follows:

  1. Two Pass Zones: Automated two-step sector/segment at mail processing facilities
  2. 876 Carrier Route Sort Zones: Automated incoming secondary carrier route sorting at plants
  3. Carrier Route Barcode Sorter (CSBCS) Zones: Automated walk sequence sorting on CSBCS machines at delivery units
  4. Delivery Barcode Sorter (DBCS) Zones: Automated walk sequence sorting on DBCS machines at plants [i.e., sectional center facilities (SCFs)] or at delivery units
  5. Manual/Mechanized Zones: No automated sorting; no tracking code scans should be generated from facilities matched to these ZIP Codes
