Postal codes in Trinidad and Tobago

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In 2012, the government of Trinidad and Tobago approved the introduction of postal codes starting later that same year. In addition to the postal code implementation the country has embarked on a nationwide address improvement initiative adopting the Universal Postal Union (UPU) S-42 international standard of addressing. The UPU is an arm of the United Nations and is the coordinating body of postal services worldwide. The intent of this exercise is to correct poor addressing in Trinidad & Tobago and assign to each address a six-digit postal code. This change will result in the following:

• All buildings will carry a building/civic number
• Numbering will be sequential and logical
• Less reliance on mile markers, lot numbers, lamp post numbers and "corner of" in addressing.

It is currently[when?] launched in the boroughs of Chaguanas, Point Fortin and Arima; Sangre Grande, Penal–Debe, Mayaro-Rio Claro, San Fernando and Princes Town regional corporations; and Tobago.

As announced in 2012, each code would be a six-digit number, with the first two digits indicating one of 72 postal districts (64 in Trinidad, eight in Tobago).[1] Although it was piloted in Point Fortin in 2013[2] and later tested in four other Trinidad communities, as well as the island of Tobago, government officials said in 2016 that the required mapping was not yet complete, and the legislative framework for the changes had never been implemented.[3]

Example

According to Trinidad and Tobago Newsday, an envelope using the postcode may be properly addressed thus:[1]

DIEGO MARTIN 150110
TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO
_______________________
Mr Jane Doe
22 Poinsettia Crescent
Westmoorings
CARENAGE 110702
TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO


In the example above, the digits "15" refer to the delivery office in Diego Martin; "01" to a certain delivery route served by that office; and "10" to a certain building or zone along that delivery route.[4]


History

Trinidad and Tobago Postal Corporation officially launched the system March 28, 2012, promising that residents and businesses would receive a postcard informing them of their new postal code "before the end of the year".[1] In May 2016, the estimated completion date was given as "within a year or two."[3]

In May 2011, TTPost said it planned to develop a postal code system in part because it is more efficient to sort mail using automated sorting machines, and in part because many areas in Trinidad and Tobago use vague or imprecise descriptive addresses based on "word of mouth and the use of landmarks". TTPost also said it also hoped develop a universal standard for addressing.[5]

“Many of our business and residential addresses regularly include features such as lamp pole numbers, street addresses without a building number, lot numbers and mile markers and the phrase ‘corner of’ as means of identification," said Trinidad and Tobago Public Utilities Minister Nizam Baksh in 2013. “Such elements may be easily understood by those living in a community, but they not only make mail delivery tedious, but can also slow down the response of fire service and ambulance personnel who are responding to an emergency in the area."[2]

Postal workers' representatives noted that along with increased efficiency in mail sorting, the system is expected to accompany a loss in mail sorter jobs. Advocates of the postal code system touted several side benefits. Classifying every address in a geographical postal code could aid in statistical analysis of crime and health care, for example.[1]
