In Germany, postcodes were introduced in 1941. Originally, they were composed of two digits and were used for parcel and packet services. Independent postal code system was developed in 1962 and 1965 in the Federal Republic in the GDR. Only in 1993, the two systems were connected to form a single, uniform system and so the five-digit ZIP code was introduced.
