German term or phrase:Postaufliefern
Postaufliefern bedeutet fertige, nach Postleitzonen, -räumen, -bereichen und Orten gebündelte und optimierte Sendungen bei der Post aufgeben und das Entgelt per Einlieferungsliste entrichten. (Von der Website der Deutschen Post)
Explanation: Presort - The process by which a mailer prepares mail so that it is sorted to the finest extent required by the standards for the rate claimed. Generally, presort is performed sequentially, from the lowest (finest) level to the highest level, to those destinations specified by standard and is completed at each level before the next level is prepared. Not all presort levels are applicable to all mailings. (Go Back to Previous Page )
