What are the postcodes of the United Kingdom? By which codes are the regions divided?

Postal codes in the United Kingdom and England consist of combinations of letters that define addresses in a specific manner. These postal codes hold a significant place in logistics. The correct use of postal codes assists in successful cargo transportation and logistic operations. Import and export companies use postal codes to accurately define the addresses of their customers. This ensures deliveries are made to the correct address, facilitating efficient logistics operations.

UK postal codes are also crucial for technological solutions employed in the cargo and logistics sector. For instance, by grouping all customers in a certain region according to their postal codes, an optimized shipment plan for cargo transportation can be prepared.
