Postal reference file: Absolutely up-to-date addresses, quality guaranteed
If address updating is what you are looking for, there's no need to look further than the postal reference file from Deutsche Post Direkt. It is Germany's superlative database in terms of size, currency and scope.
Addresses are managed using tools such as Deutsche Post's address verification service. Delivery personnel continually check addresses, making sure they are written correctly and are deliverable. Any corrections are entered directly into the postal reference file.
The postal reference file includes:
- About 190 million private addresses, both current and past. Addresses listed as no longer existent are gleaned from relocations, name changes (marriage) and items reported as undeliverable.
- Correct spelling of both first and last names
- Information regarding deliverability
- Information regarding neighborhood type
- Geographic information for spatial localization
