However, please do not use bold print and do not highlight anything. Leave an empty line between this information and  the address.

Address

In buildings with several households, mailboxes are often labelled with the door number only. In order for us to deliver your items correctly, it is paramount that you provide the complete address.

 Addressee First name and last name or company name (and name of the contact person)
 Delivery point Street address (or the locality name) and street number. If several families live in the building, also provide the block and/or staircase number and the door number.
 Postcode and city/town of destination  See our Postcode list.

Please use both Latin script and Arabic numbers to make the information is easy to read.

Items are also easier to read by our machines if the recipient's address is aligned left and the information is sorted from top to bottom as follows: addressee, delivery point, postcode and city/town of destination.

Bundling

Items are to be sorted by postcode and locality bundles, distribution route, distribution area and distribution zone bundles. Please tie bundles crosswise to ensure that they withstand all stress during delivery. Several bundles can be placed in one pallet.

The following limits apply to bundles:

Height: Minimum 20 mm
Maximum 235 mm
Weight: Maximum 10 kg
Items per bundle: At least 20 items (except in the case of heavy items)

All bundles need to have a correctly completed bundle label containing the following information:

• Title of the item
• Information "Sponsoring Post"
• Amount of items per bundle

Optional information when using the Shipping Manager:

• Title of folder
• Pallet number
• Bundle number
•  Bundle type
• IMIS number

Please place all machine processable Sponsoring.Post items that weigh up to 50 g in letter mail containers. Place items upright and facing the same way (do not stack). The cheaper rate for locality bundles will be charged for machine processable items.

Bundle labels are available in our download area. You can print them out yourself, provided that you follow all instructions.
For detailed information about delivery preparation, please see the General Terms and Conditions for company newspaper delivery.
