Function and organization

The field post control center has a double function: On the one hand, it serves as a central point of contact for mail in action. Any post in use - no matter what destination - carries a zip code the 64298 the field post control center in the Major Karl Plagge-Kaserne (formerly Frankenstein barracks) in Darmstadt . Here the incoming mail is sorted and distributed to the areas of application. The post then goes to the areas of operation either by air freight or a forwarding agent.
