FedEx Denies Delivery of Huawei P30 Pro in the US

25 Juin, 2019, 05:22 | Auteur: Auguste Feret

One of its United Kingdom writers attempted to send a Huawei P30 phone to the magazine's USA office via the Parcelforce and Fed Ex courier services, but got sent back as per the tweet below. FedEx said it has no "general ban" on Huawei products. Cryptically, though, the company did point out that "the return to sender label attached to the package in question was not generated by FedEx".

And even if China and the United States reach a trade agreement in the near future and Huawei is taken off the U.S. blacklisting, China seems to want to make very clear to USA firms and others around the world that it will be making note of who the friends of Chinese firms are going forward, and who was "unreliable" when it counted.

The courier company also said: "As a global company that delivers 15 million items a day, we are committed to complying with all rules and regulations, adapting our operations to the regulatory environment in the United States, and minimizing the impact on our customers".

The Beijing News, a municipal government-run newspaper, in an editorial on Monday, said FedEx had misinterpreted the USA ban and called on US firms to be "rational" and not to over-react.

Chinese telecoms company Huawei Technologies Co in May was added to the U.S. "Entity List" of people and companies the government said posed a risk to the United States, essentially barring it from buying U.S. technology upon which it was heavily reliant.

"This is not the first time FedEx has made a Huawei-related mistake", said Geng Shuang, spokesman of China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs. On Sunday, Huawei tweeted it was not within FedEx's right to prevent the delivery and said the courier had a "vendetta".

The latest incident has sparked renewed criticism of FedEx on Chinese social media.

China's Global Times newspaper said in a tweet later that FedEx is likely to be added to China's "unreliable entities list" due to the incident.

Huawei, which said it was reviewing its relationship with FedEx after the mishandling of its packages earlier, did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment on Sunday.

China's state news agency Xinhua had said back then that the investigation into FedEx over misdirected mail should not be regarded as retaliation against the US company, amid the trade spat.

FedEx's operational error comes against a backdrop of increasing tension between the world's two biggest economies.

The United States and China have been engaged in a trade fight for almost a year on issues such as tariffs, subsidies, technology, regulations and cybersecurity, among others.

President Trump is expected to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping at the Group of 20 summit in Japan later this week.
