American Express (or AmEx for short) is the largest American multidisciplinary company. This company provides tourism services, produces and services card products and traveler’s checks.
American Express was based in 1850 in the state of New York, USA, and initially acted as a valuable cargo delivery service. In the 1880s, the president of American Express, Mr. Fargo, made a trip to Europe for relaxation and was furious that throughout the journey he had difficulty using credit letters to receive money. Upon returning from the trip, he instructed the head of the transportation department to come up with a better alternative to credit letters. The solution was the American Express road check – the first product invented by American Express. American Express’s emphasis on travel continued over the next decades. Selling checks to travelers and money transfers bring income that justified this direction of the company. Today, American Express is known not only for road checks but also for credit cards, which are extremely popular all over the world, although they are inferior to Visa and Mastercard.
