You want to write your resume so that both machines (that is, the ATS) and humans can easily find key information they are looking for. That includes your name, email, phone number, and often your online professional profile. Physical addresses are not necessary, as they are typically entered securely into an ATS during the application process, where usually you can enter multiple addresses.
The machine will also be looking for your zip code on your resume. Experts recommend job seekers desiring to relocate to a specific area include the zip code of that targeted area in their resumes. That makes your resume searchable by zip code and therefore more visible to recruiters.

Your Name Email Address [City, State] Zip of desired employment location
