In 1900, American Express was both a financial services company with products like money orders, and a shipping company.  In 1900, shipping and forwarding represented the majority of its business.  Stations in towns like Chicopee Falls received consignments for shipping out of Chicopee and shipments arriving in Chicopee from other AMEX stations.
