What is Delivery Point Validation (DPV)?

DPV is a technology available from the United States Postal Service to help mailers identify inaccurate or incomplete addresses. The DPV System assists mailers in obtaining accurate delivery address information and facilitates identification of erroneous addresses contained in mailer address files. Mailer use of DPV helps to reduce the amount of undeliverable as addressed (UAA) pieces, which in turn will result in more efficient postal mail processing and delivery operations. DPV essentially returns yes/no against a list of over 145 million deliverable addresses.

What is Residential Delivery Indicator (RDI)?

91% of mailing addresses in the United States are classified as residential. RDI-enabled software helps you make informed shipping decisions by identifying whether a delivery type is classified as residential or business. If you are shipping to residences, you may lower costs by shipping with the Postal Service and avoid residential delivery surcharges as some shipping companies charge a higher price for delivery to a residence.
