MLOCR (Multi-line Optical Character Reader)

The Postal Center (BGS Central Services Division) has invested in the MLOCRs address reading technology to verify the most current delivery addresses against the USPS database.  

How it Works

Agency mail is read by MLOCR.  This software is linked to the USPS data base containing the latest change of address for recipients who have moved and filed the necessary change of address orders. The new address is sprayed on the First Class mail piece in the form of an Intelligent Mail Barcode and the mail is sorted to the proper zip code for automated mail processing and postage discounts.


There must be a clear area on the envelope of 5/8" from the bottom edge of the mail piece or 4.75" from the right edge on all 1st class permitted envelopes. Envelope design and format are critical - they must meet standards for automation addressing.  The Postal Center staff will meet with you to discuss any questions you have related to envelope design and format specifications.
