Interest of this service

There are several reasons for using a P. O. Box :

If you are often away from home, on recurring business trips, subscribing to this service can be useful to you in order to lose any letters.
If you happen to find your mailbox open or if you have doubts about a possible theft of mail, the PO Box is a secure service, within the postal offices, that prevents any subtlety or deterioration of the mail.
If for reasons of discretion you do not want to communicate your physical address or do not receive your mail at your home, in case of collocation for example.
Addressing a PO Box has the advantage of simplicity, which avoids errors and NPAI.
Here’s how it’s structured :

Your first and last name or company name, which must appear on the first line of the address,
the acronym BP followed by a digit code
The postal code and the city (followed by the possible CEDEX)

For professionals :

The P. O. Box is often used by professionals who do not have a secretary for mail management, or by self-employed people working from home who want to separate their personal and professional postal addresses. Similarly, a larger company, but without a mail service, will be able to choose to open several postboxes by assigning them to different departments of the company (customer service, accounting department…). Consumer services of large companies are often addressed in this configuration due to the large volumes of mail received. In this case, it is the function of sorting postal flows that is sought. For a one-off event, promotion or competition, a box can be opened on time and closed a few months later. This flexibility is highly appreciated by professionals. It should still be remembered that this is not a commercial direct debit service, the address in BP has no legal value. Company. Large accounts can opt for the famous CEDEX (“exceptional distribution company Mail”) which allows priority management of a very large volume.
