pre-sorted mail

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 )

Notes to answerer
Asker: I think postaufliefern is more than sorting, but sorting is an important part of it. I have reached the conclusion that lettershops in Germany offer a slightly different service spectrum
