The United States Postal Service is reportedly planning to launch an emergency service order-processing tool that would allow customers to place an order for food and supplies without having to enter their zip code.
The USPS is also working on an app that would enable customers to order from Amazon, but there’s a problem with the service.
Customers will need to provide a valid address, the New York Times reported, but the service could still be unavailable in some areas.
“You’ll have to make sure that the ZIP code you’re in matches that of your actual address,” postal service spokesman Jim Pinto told the Times.
“That can be tricky.”
Pinto did not provide any further information on what kind of information the USPS could provide to the public.
The New York Post reported that USPS will likely launch the emergency service tool in 2019.
Amazon also reportedly plans to use the service to offer customers a free two-day shipping guarantee if they have a certain address.
Pinto also told the newspaper that the USPS will be launching the tool “in the next couple of months,” but did not give any specific dates.
The Postal Service did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
