Along the way, it is important to understand the local country’s address format, what information is required to assist the smooth delivery of the product to the consumer, at the quickest and effective way. To understand of these formats, it is best to consult the locals in that country to learn from them how the locals understand and interpret the addresses, what information to be provided etc.  Information like postal/zip code, city, province, country code for a country are important elements in understand how to interpret a correct or ‘clean’ address details.

This is where transportation companies to come up with the best solutions/implementations on effective transport routing to the nearest depot/distribution centers to deliver the product. Beside having a fool-proof routing map, the integrity of the delivery address is also important as if wrong/incomplete information is provided by the consumer. This will also impact the transportation provider’s SLA (Service Level Agreement) with the product’s manufacturers in terms of the percentage of successful delivery on-time/on-target.
