Optional. Use LOTOUT to identify the location on the output record to store the information returned from the Line of Travel Master file.

Note: iLine of Travel is NOT the same as a Walk Sequence Code. If you are trying to obtain Walk Sequence Codes, they are provided through licensed DSF2 (Delivery Sequence File) Vendors.

Ordinarily, to sort mail in line of travel sequence, you must sort your mail by ZIP Code, Carrier Route, Line of Travel code, ZIP+4 Code, and DPBC (delivery point barcode) add-on. The DPBC must be sorted in either ascending or descending sequence based on the alphabetic portion of the Line of Travel code. Instead of doing this cumbersome task, two sequence fields are provided so the entire sortation string can be sorted in ascending sequence.

A two-character alternate alphanumeric sequence field is returned based upon the DPBC and the alphabetic portion of the Line of Travel Code. This two-character field consists of an uppercase letter followed by a single digit. The range of possible values is from A0 through T9. The one-character hexadecimal sequence field works the same way but has a range of values from hexadecimal "21" (binary numeric 33) to hexadecimal "E8" (binary numeric 232). Both alternate sequence fields work the same way to be used for sortation purposes. In other words, you do not need to post both alternate sequence fields.
