USA ZIP codes are 5 digit numbers that are found on the top right-hand side of some letters/packages. There are now over 40,000 ZIP codes in United States and each code has a unique numbers. In this article, I will list and show all 50 states in USA and their ZIP codes for you step by step.
The ZIP code, (an acronym for Zone Improvement Plan) was introduced on July 1, 1963 by the United States Postal Service to help efficiently deal with the growing number of businesses using direct mailing.
The ZIP code was an extension of the two digit postal code that was already being used in major cities. The main goal was to improve efficiency and accuracy of processing and sorting the mail and dealing with the labor shortage World War II left. They needed an easy system where they could quickly train their new workers.
Did you know that the current 5-digit ZIP code of all states in USA begins with the digit that represents the region?
For example “0” represents the Northeast, and goes all the way to “9” in Alaska. The second 2 numbers represent a central mail processing facility (SCF) in that region. The last two digits indicate a more precise location for small post offices or zones in larger cities.
There are presently 50 states in USA each with their respective ZIP codes! Do you want to know all of their list? If you live in one of the states in USA, for example, Idaho, then the zip code of your state is 83254.
In USA, it is suggested that the mail travels quickly and is delivered more efficiently when a sender uses a Zip code in the postal address. Meanwhile, if you want your letter to be delivered faster, then adding the Zip code of your state or location to it is your best bet.
Zip codes are more important than you may realize. You might have heard elsewhere that zip codes play a role in your credit score, and it’s true. However, zip codes play three major important roles in both your personal and business life.
