Introduced on July 1, 1963, the basic format consisted of five digits.  In 1983, an extended ZIP+4 code was introduced; it included the five digits of the ZIP Code, followed by a hyphen and four digits that designated a more specific location.  Though the +4 is currently being deprecated due to new technologies.


ZIP stands for Zone Improvement Plan.  The concept and term was chosen to suggest that the mail travels more efficiently and quickly ( IE zipping along) when senders use the code in the postal address. The term ZIP Code was originally registered as a service mark by the US Postal Service.
