Carrier Route Boundaries

Carrier Route Boundaries provides latitude/longitude coordinates for the vertices of carrier route polygons. Point-type carrier routes are not included in this version.

Carrier Route Centroids

Carrier Route Centroids includes all carrier routes, one record per, including point-type routes such as PO Boxes and others for which an accurate boundary cannot be defined. If possible, PO Box carrier routes are located at a post office’s physical location; otherwise, these routes appear at the ZIP centroid. If a point carrier route is not a PO Box, we attempt to place it at the centroid of the street segment where we have the best match; otherwise, we place it at the ZIP centroid.

ZIP Code Boundaries and Centroids

5-digit ZIP Code boundaries and centroids are included with the Carrier Route Boundaries product in a separate set of files. The ZIP Codes have the same currency as, and their boundaries align with, their respective carrier routes.
