usords refers to the sorting station/facility in Chicago , Illinois , USA .. 430 Miles west of Toronto... This is where 3 packages that I have recently sent via USPS Priority Mail ( Expedited mail out of Canada ) go through .. The 3 parcels were all destined for Eastern USA --1 to a Boston suburb , 1 toNY City( New Hyde Park and another to Connecticut!!!!!THAT'S going 430 WEST of Toronto before heading to the East Coast ( Chicago --> Boston =approx. 800 miles ! )..Toronto --> Boston = 420 miles !! Similar story with NY + Connecticut .. Parcels travelat least twice and even 3 times the distance ( from Toronto ) going through the Chicago sorting area ... INSANE and they call this progress... Toronto to the East coast has Numerous flights everyday .. Why send a parcel 430 miles West before heading to NY or Boston ????Pony Express would be just as quick , I think !!PS : parcel to Connecticut just informed was delivered after 11 days ( USPS Priority Mail ) ... just ... FYI !!!!!!

They are International Mail Processing Center (IMPC) codes. Many more such codes exist.
