Faultless addressing for quick delivery
Our employees gladly ensure that every postal item arrives at the correct address as quickly as possible. To make this possible, you must write the full and correct address in clearly legible letters on the envelope.
How do I write an address correctly?
An address consists of at least 3 and maximum 5 address lines:
- Name of person or company
- Extra details such as attn
- Street name and house number, possibly followed by the word 'box' and the box number.
- Postcode and city
- Country (only for foreign addresses)
Place a space between the postcode and the municipality. Write the city in capital letters.
Where do I write the address?
Write the recipient's address on the front of the envelope, in the address box. Write the address parallel to the longest side of the envelope and align it on the left.
- Zone for the recipient’s address box
- Recipient address box
- Franking and cancelling zone
- Free zone for the sender
- Return address zone (verso)
- Indexation zone: zone used by the sorting machine to print a barcode : must stay free or white
- Semi-free zones for the sender (no text which can be confused with an address)
Write the return address on the back flap of the envelope. If it is not possible to write it on the back, then write it on the front in smaller letters than the forwarding address, horizontal in the upper left corner or vertical on the left edge.
