ZIP+4 Code™ Lookup — Last 4 Digits of ZIP Codes Meaning/Use
ZIP+4 Codes are 4-digit codes added to traditional ZIP Codes that provide faster routing. The last 4 digits of the ZIP Code represent delivery route segments within delivery areas and generally consist of 10-20 mailboxes. For example, a ZIP+4 could indicate floor #16 in a high-rise, a street’s north-facing homes, or a large business.
ZIP+4 Codes indicate small geographic areas. By adding a ZIP+4 to what you mail, the USPS instantly knows the date, time, and carrier that will place your letter in the mailbox. The USPS will also immediately knows every truck, airplane, and facility they’ll use along the way.
That’s how ZIP plus 4 codes help prevent misdelivered, lost, delayed, and returned mail. Including those last 4 digits can reduce delivery time by as much as 2 days!

How to Find My ZIP+4 Code Extension
Quickly find the last 4 digits of ZIP Codes for almost any address in the United States by watching this video.
What ZIP+4 Codes Are
ZIP+4 Codes are 4-digit codes appended to the original 5-digit USPS ZIP Codes. Using the full ZIP Code with the extra 4 digits when mailing via the USPS ensures the fastest, most accurate mailing possible.
ZIP+4 Codes are also frequently referred to «Plus-Four Codes», «ZIP Code Extensions», «9-digit ZIP Codes», «Full ZIP Codes», or simply «Extended ZIP Codes». No matter what name you use, ZIP plus 4 codes aid the USPS in sorting and distributing mail effectively.
ZIP plus 4 lookup tools don’t just find the full ZIP Code. The +4 shows after the address standardization and validation process confirm the address is mailable.
These codes indicate a specific delivery route, meaning the actual path the mail truck would travel in a single drop-off. Usually, this comprises ten to twenty homes or locations. The USPS also assigns ZIP+4 Codes to PO Boxes. Typically, each PO Box gets its own +4 Code, which often matches the box number.
The extra 4 digits on ZIP Codes identify segments of fluid postal delivery routes. They’re not permanent lines, so those last 4 digits on 9-digit ZIP Codes can change regularly. Five-digit ZIP Codes also change, but they do so infrequently; it’s less likely that you will live in a ZIP Code when it changes. Not so for the last 4 digits of zip codes.
The +4 on a ZIP Code can change as frequently as every month. Quantity of postal employees, new construction, remapping delivery areas, etc., are just a few things that cause ZIP+4 Code changes.
Full, 9-Digit ZIP Code Benefits
Here are a few benefits of looking up ZIP+4 Codes/9-digit ZIP Codes as a part of your address data management or shipping processes.
- Faster Shipping — Each ZIP+4 Code represents segments of delivery routes that are usually within a single block of the desired delivery point. That simple 9-digit number makes routing more efficient since the USPS knows which mail person will put the letter in the mailbox. Completing ZIP+4s on your mail can speed up processing and delivery, sometimes by as many as two days.
- Reduce Lost Mail & Misdeliveries — More efficient routing also means fewer opportunities for mistakes along the way.
- Less Returned Mail — Obtaining ZIP+4 Codes requires validation; that means the address is a valid delivery point. It also means the address information is standardized to the USPS address format. Mail delivery is more reliable with a valid, standardized address with ZIP4 Code since the address data is clearly understood.
- Save Money with Bulk Mailings — If you send at least 50 packages or more than 200-500 pieces of mail, you may be able to qualify for commercial mailing discounts. By adding ZIP+4 Codes, Delivery Point Barcodes, and sorting/bundling your mail, you can get discounts up to 5% to nearly 60% off the prices you’d pay at the post office.
- Cleaner Address Data — Addresses must be validated, standardized, and corrected before you get the ZIP+4 Code. So, you get much more than a pretty 9-digit ZIP Code; you get a clean, standard address. Clean, standard addresses are easy to sort and compare. Comparing a table of standardized, verified addresses allows you to identify duplicates, delete redundancies or merge records easily.
- Enriched Address Data — When you give Smarty an address and ask for the ZIP+4 Code, we give you the ZIP+4 Code along with the validated, standardized address. We also provide up to 45 data points about the address, including county information, lat/long coordinates, time zone, whether the address is residential or commercial, and more data that can be used for business intelligence and to understand your mail recipients better.
That’s right. Your mail can show up faster, cheaper, and more reliably if you label things right, plus you get less returned mail. Bet you’re scrambling to look up those full ZIP Codes now. Grab those extra 4 digits now.
How ZIP Codes Became 9-Digit-ZIP Codes
Fully understanding the last four digits of ZIP Codes requires knowing about 5-digit ZIP Codes too.
These are the codes you know. They look like this.
The Zone Improvement Plan (ZIP) was something the USPS came up with to make it easier to ship letters and packages across the country. ZIP helps divide the country into different «zones» according to the distribution of mail, which accelerates sorting and delivery.
On July 1, 1963, the Post Office Department launched the Zone Improvement Plan. At the same time, they introduced the world to Mr. ZIP or «Zippy.» Zippy is the official ZIP Code mascot pictured on our ZIP Codes 101 page. They also released the ZIP Code jingle:
Your browser does not support the audio element.
As the US population has increased and scattered since 1963, it’s been necessary to expand the system to make room for everybody and their dog. That’s where the «plus 4» part comes in. We’re getting ahead of ourselves, so let’s start with the basics.
If you’re mailing a letter from Boston to Seattle, the mail carrier in Massachusetts doesn’t care what the street address of the destination is. It’s what you might call «outside his jurisdiction.» He just needs to know which mail carrier to send it to so the appropriate mailperson can get it to the address.
A postal worker can only cover so much ground on a given day. And since the USPS has a standard of delivering in the rain, sleet, or snow, that rules out the possibility of doing the service of delivery in stages (some today, some tomorrow). That means any given post office only serves what it can reach in a day. ZIP Codes reflect that.
Typically, a ZIP Code ties to a post office; by that, we mean every one of the latter has one of the former. You might think of ZIP Codes as a mailing address for a particular post office. Some handle more than one ZIP Code, but a one-on-one game plan is a standard.
It’s essential to note that ZIP Codes aren’t «boundaries.» They’re a collection of delivery routes. They don’t follow geographic or administrative boundary lines; they can cross city, county, and state
lines. They follow where the delivery trucks go.
Some ZIP Codes are a bit different in function. Among them are «military» ZIP Codes, which include everything
from military bases (domestic or otherwise) to battleships at sea. Then there are «unique» ZIP Codes. Businesses and organizations sometimes get a dedicated ZIP Code that they don’t have to share with anyone due to the volume of mail they send and receive.
These frequently benefit from bulk mailing discounts since the organization usually has a mail department that (1) presorts mail before giving it to the USPS and (2) distributes mail internally, so the USPS doesn’t have to. Like standard ZIP Codes, «military» and «unique» ZIP Codes circumscribe their delivery area. For a more in-depth guide, visit our ZIP Codes page.
ZIP+4 Code Database
For many users, the best way to access the USPS ZIP+4 database is through a CASS Certified USPS address validation vendor. Like Smarty. Since the last four digits of ZIP Codes update frequently, even month-old data isn’t reliable. Checking addresses regularly against the database will ensure your data remains clean.
The ZIP+4 Code database can be accessed free directly through the USPS site or the USPS address validation API. In our USPS APIs article, you will find a comprehensive list of uses and limitations of the USPS web-based tool and API.

USPS Tracking — Track your USPS packages and mail
USPS is the official US postal service. FedEx and UPS immediately compete with USPS Express Mail and package couriers to deliver urgent letters and packages across the country. Due to the USPS monopoly, other U.S. couriers are not allowed to deliver non-urgent letters and mail them to U.S. mailboxes in residential and other offices.
Ship24 offers USPS tracking by simply entering your USPS tracking number on the homepage. Get real-time updates on the events of your packages and follow their journey to your doorstep with Ship24.

USPS Parcel Service
How can I track a USPS package?

Ship24 constantly connects and scans hundreds of couriers and even more online stores, ensuring that you are always aware of any changes to your USPS package. it can perform global tracking efficiently regardless of the courier.

USPS International Tracking
USPS Tracking Procedure
How can I track my USPS international package?
USPS international packages can be tracked with a one-stop tracking solution. Ship24 does just that. You can enter your USPS international tracking number on the homepage and within seconds, Ship24 will provide you with all the tracking information you need for your package, whether domestic or international. The great thing about tracking your USPS international package on Ship24 is that you can track up to 10 packages at a time.
Although USPS has tracking services as part of its operations, packages delivered by USPS are not just handled by the company, but are increasingly delivered by other couriers hired by the company. Thus, packages handled by the US Postal Service may be sent through different couriers on their way to their final destination.
Any number of handlers deliver packages for USPS depending on the destination of the package and the size and weight of the package in certain circumstances. Consequently, the tracking options available with USPS are sometimes inconclusive for individuals and businesses that need the best possible tracking options for their company shipments.
Ship24 automatically detects couriers delivering any USPS packages based only on the USPS international tracking number you provide. The truth is that parcels travel a complex path during their journey as they can be handled by many different couriers and possibly with changing tracking numbers.
Ship24’s Universal Tracking System is designed to handle these shipping changes so you stay up to date with any changes your USPS package is about to make. You don’t have to choose which courier to use, even if you specifically used USPS, as Ship24 interprets your tracking code and determines where your package is and who it is with. Indeed, our main sources of tracking data are continuously monitored to ensure that you receive the best possible tracking information.
What is the USPS tracking number format?
A USPS tracking number is a shipment tracking number, or a unique identifier, that is assigned to each USPS package shipped by courier. This number will only be used by USPS.
Any USPS tracking number for any package is unique and consists of 20-22 digits with no letters or with two letters at the end. Please see some examples of USPS tracking numbers provided. Below you can see examples of different USPS tracking numbers for different types of services.
Please be aware that USPS Express Mail tracking numbers are 13 characters long, starting with two letters and ending with «US».

Has USPS changed international services in its packages?
USPS recently made some changes to the names of international service options to be aware of for customers wishing to use USPS services.
USPS International Options
The following changes are listed below to inform consumers when deciding whether to purchase USPS package delivery:
- Airmail, also known as Letter Post, is now First Class Mail International. This type of mail covers small packages up to four pounds or 1.8 kilograms.
- Airmail has been replaced by Priority Mail International (PMI).
- US Parcel Service — Supplied PO Boxes for Priority and Express Mail can now be used for international use.
- Global Express is now Express Mail International and Global Express Guaranteed remains unchanged.
- Post economy package is discontinued.
Please note that the above is subject to change. Ship24 can track all registered mail, regardless of the courier. Companies can also take advantage of direct access to the Ship24 tracking API, which also covers multiple couriers and includes global tracking services, directly into their system after integration.
Do USPS packages use subcontractors for their international packages?
When it comes to global tracking of your USPS packages, buyers should be aware that packages may travel with multiple subcontracted couriers at certain locations, depending on the shipping route, the weight and size of the package, or a number of other factors.
Therefore, getting the latest location of your package is not always possible with USPS tracking. But Ship24 specializes in tracking shipments and therefore has the advantage of USPS tracking.
Go to the Ship24 website to see yourself and get instant location information and real-time status tracking.
How do I get free USPS shipping?
If you buy USPS shipping directly from a carrier, you will need to pay for the service you require. In this case, there are no free shipping options available. However, if you purchase from a marketplace or online retailer that ships via USPS, the cost of shipping via USPS may be covered by the business or seller.
If so, you should be aware that you are not responsible for any USPS shipping charges at the time of purchase. Many marketplaces and businesses offer free shipping on USPS packages to encourage the purchase of their product.
Can you track USPS free shipping?
Whether you’re buying USPS package shipping directly or if the item you’re ordering includes free USPS shipping, you can always track your USPS order with Ship24. All USPS orders are registered, which means they will be assigned an official USPS tracking number, and you can use that number to track your USPS package on the Ship24 website.
Many people choose Ship24 when tracking USPS packages because the postal operator often works with several other private couriers and logistics operators, especially when it comes to international shipping.
For example, if you are ordering goods from Europe and are in America, often the first part of your package’s journey will be first processed by a European courier company (for example, from a warehouse or store where it is picked up from), before traveling abroad with a logistics company (whether either by sea or by air), until the USPS is received in the United States and delivered to them.
The same applies if you are shipping from the US (or ordering from the US), but in this case USPS takes care of the first part of the journey.
With Ship24 you don’t need to know who and when will handle your package or at what stage of the journey it will change hands. Using only a USPS tracking number, Ship24 can recognize and trace your package no matter how many times it has changed hands.
Does Ship24 offer incremental USPS promotions?
Like many tracking systems, Ship24 notifies you as soon as you enter your USPS tracking number on the website. If you need step-by-step instructions on how to ship or promote USPS packages, you can get the latest status and location information on the Ship24 web page. A business or individual who wants to instantly know the latest information about their package, with automatic tracking number detection, including absolutely free, simply needs to enter the tracking number that they received with the first purchase.
Any buyer who buys should be aware that Ship24 is just a tracking tool and is not responsible for the handling of packages by the courier. If a package is lost, damaged, or has any other issues with any package handled by the courier, customers are advised to contact the courier — in this case, USPS — directly. If you have any problems with a shipment, please find a USPS contact where the request can be made directly to the courier.
US Postal Service Customer Service
Please see courier details below:
- Landline Customer Service at 1-800-222-1811
- Via USPS
- By texting your USPS tracking number (which can be found in your purchase confirmation email or login profile on the marketplace where you made your purchase) in message
Find all the information you need in the «Contact Us» section of the USPS website for more information if you need it.
The courier is ultimately responsible for making any updates and adding the latest events. Once shipping tracking information is available, Ship24 will provide you with the latest tracking information possible. The fastest way to access these tracking events is through Ship24’s universal tracking system.
Are USPS package updates the best way to get updates?
While other tracking API systems may vary in response time, Ship24 offers a response time for up-to-date tracking information as close to real-time as possible. This is facilitated by its tracking excellence as Ship24 connects with over 1200 couriers and thousands of different stores.
Ship24 makes it easy. When or if a package changes courier or even tracking number, whether it’s handled by major couriers like FedEx, UPS, USPS, DHL or others, Ship24 tracks location and status 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Does USPS ever make a mistake when sending a package?
USPS, as well as other couriers and processors, may encounter problems with package delivery. There are many different reasons why packages can’t be delivered on time or even can’t be delivered from time to time. Problems don’t always necessarily come down to the courier. This may be due to an incomplete address provided by the seller, damage to the packaging, or a number of other reasons.
