Suitable for automation

To process your advertising mail, Deutsche Post uses sorting systems that are capable of fully-automated sorting. To be compatible with machine processing, POSTWURFSPEZIAL items must be fully suitable for automation in both the Standard and the Large basic formats.

POSTWURFSPEZIAL items that differ from the shapes and dimensions of the specified basic formats, as well as items that do not have straight outer edges, may be posted as creative special formats. This incurs an "Unsuitable for automation" surcharge.

If items are not suitable for automation and cause disruption during machine processing, the payable surcharge can be imposed retrospectively within four weeks of the day of posting for the entire posted volume of the order.


Suitability for automation is determined as follows:

  • Machine readability (typeface, arrangement, background and setting of the writing)
  • Layout of the address side (separation into zones and design requirements of the address side)
  • Compatibility with machine processing (content and external characteristics of the item)

Items in the Standard basic format up to 20g must be fully suitable for automation. Items in the Standard basic format exceeding 20g and in the Large basic format must meet the requirements of machine readability and layout on the address side. Machinability is desirable but not mandatory. For more information see the POSTWURFSPEZIAL product brochure.
