The postal service in Greece is called the Hellenic Post and is a public service
that comes under the Ministry of Transport and Communications.
Their main role is the collection, sorting, and delivery of letters and parcels
both nationally and internationally.
They are required to provide both a national post service and an international
post service. They perform any task that is deemed necessary of the postal
service. The Greek postal service is also responsible for managing the postal
income and setting rates accordingly.
The postcodes in Greece consist of five digits with a space after the first
three digits. The first two digits represent the sorting center or a town with a
population of more than 50,000 people. If the third digit is a 0 then it
represents a post office. The last two digits represent the zone of distribution
(e.g. 370 05).
