Today, there were reports that FedEx, a US-based courier service company diverted some of Huawei’s shipment which was Asia bound to the United States. According to Huawei, two of the company’s parcels destined for Asian addresses were sent to the United States without explanation. The company also said that FedEx also tried to reschedule the shipping routes of another two parcels. For this reason, Huawei is re-examining its partnership with FedEx.
According to the Chinese manufacturer, the diverted parcels originated from Japan and the other two that was to be diverted were coming from Vietnam. Huawei said that this behavior is not authorized by the company, and it can provide image records tracked by FedEx Express. Furthermore, the company said that the four couriers that were forwarded only contained commercial documents and there were no technology-related things.
A FedEx spokesperson said that this was only a minor shipment error. He said that the company did not receive a (government) order and refused to comment on the courier record. FedEX said: “This is an isolated issue, limited to a very small number of packages, we know all controversial packages, and we are working with customers to return the package.”
Huawei said it has filed a formal complaint with the China Post Regulatory Authority. Well, this could be a simple postal error like FedEx said but considering the fact that the United States government is doing all it can to drown Huawei, it is hard to believe that this is just a “simple mistake”. Fedex, is a US-based company headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee, USA. It has offices in Hong Kong, China, Toronto, Ontario, Brussels, Belgium, parts of Latin America, Miami and other regions.
