It could well mean "Plus additional information contained on the waybill".
You don't say what the loads are, but if they were farm equipment, for
example, one machine might have been for Stansberry, with another for
another point down the line. Most railroads permitted up to three
"stop-offs" for a nominal fee. In the early 1960's when I first went to work
railroading, it was still only $25.
