The postal codes of the Netherlands
The zip code has been introduced in the Netherlands in 1978. The ZIP code consists of four numbers and two letters. The first two digits define the region and the last two numbers, the city, the village or the neighborhood. The remaining two letters define the neighborhood and the street. Due to historical events, there are not used combinations of letters such as SS, SA and SD. Together with the house number, the CAP system is composed by an unique code, which is not used only for the mailing address. For example, often it will be used in the frame of the bicycles, for identification in case of theft or will be used to collect data on the population.
