Addressing practices differ essentially from country to country. There are more than 200 address formats in the world, and 200 database structures and at least 20 language scripts are officially used to write addresses. This diversity is very difficult to comply with when dealing with addressing at the international level. Our addressing knowledge center is designed to answer questions arising as a result of this variety and complexity.
It consists of three parts: reference data FAQs, general addressing issues and thoroughfare types and abbreviations.
