Nevertheless, DHL has issued a statement denying the report and branding it as “false”. The company said: “Recently some media reports on DHL Hong Kong’s suspension of Huawei’s express shipments are not true. At the same time, as the industry’s leading international express delivery supplier, DHL Express China is committed to providing all customers including Huawei with high-quality international courier service.”
DHL is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Deutsche Post. It is headquartered in Brussels. In addition to the express delivery business, DHL also includes sub-brands such as Dansha Shipping and EXEL Logistics. Due to the loss it recorded in the US market, it announced its withdrawal from the US domestic express delivery market in late 2008.
