Ridiculous! FedEx returned a Huawei mobile phone that was supposed to be sent to the US

According to foreign media reports, this week, the editor of PC Magazine in the UK planned to send a Huawei P30 phone from his British office to his US office, but surprisingly, the phone was unexpectedly returned a few days after it was sent out. The reason for the return was the problem between the US government and Huawei.

FedEx returned a Huawei mobile phone

It is reported that the phone was originally intended to be sent from London to Indianapolis-first using the British Parcelforce and then switching to the company's US partner, FedEx (FedEx),. Unfortunately, it could not be delivered because of so-called legal issues. However, the FedEx didn’t tell what the actual legal issue is.

FedEx's approach baffled PC Magazine staff because when they contacted UPS, another American delivery company, they were happy to accept the deal. In addition, PC Magazine staff verified with Huawei, which said it was a complete misunderstanding of U. S. orders.

Although in the past few months, the US government has imposed a series of restrictions on Huawei, the company has been quietly blacklisted by US communications operators and stopped working with a number of US technology companies. But none of this explicitly forbids Britons from sending mobile phones they buy to the United States. But as is often the case with corporate law enforcement, FedEx seems to be using corporate policy to avoid the problem as much as possible.

FedEx transports important Huawei documents and parcels to the United States

Last time FedEx transferred Huawei's important document parcels to the United States, FedEx is still in trouble again, just a month ago.

On May 28 last month, FedEx was exploded in the transfer of important Huawei documents to the United States. Huawei said the US express company had unspecified transferred two Huawei parcels to the US and tried to transfer the other two parcels to the US as well.

According to express delivery records, two parcels sent to Huawei from Tokyo on May 19 and May 20 were delivered to Huawei on May 23 but were sent to Memphis, Tennessee.

Two other parcels from Hanoi, Vietnam, were originally planned for Huawei's offices in Hong Kong and Singapore, but were intercepted after arriving at local FedEx (FedEx) stations in Hong Kong and Singapore on May 21 because of "abnormal delivery". According to FedEx's website, the "abnormal" status means that unexpected incidents hinder the delivery of parcels, such as customs delays, holidays or unaccepted delivery.

However, according to an email provided by Huawei to Reuters, on May 22, a customer service representative of FedEx (FedEx) in Vietnam said in response to their inquiry that he had received a notice from the US head office asking for the package to be kept and returned to the United States. As a result, the goods were not delivered to the consignee, but were stranded. Huawei told Reuters that both packages in Vietnam were sent by its freight forwarders and included emergency documents. Huawei has received one package from Vietnam and the other is on its way, according to FedEx tracking records provided by Huawei.

After the incident, Huawei filed a formal complaint with China Post's regulatory authorities, which are investigating the incident.

In response to the incident, FedEx spokesman Donahue said the packages were "sent incorrectly" and that FedEx had not received any other requests. "This is an isolated problem, limited to a very small number of packages," FedEx said. "

On June 1, the relevant Chinese authorities launched an investigation into the FedEx case!

At present, China has established a "list of unreliable entities" system, and FedEx has been investigated, which will be a warning to other foreign enterprises, organizations and individuals who violate relevant Chinese laws and regulations. For now, however, FedEx has not learned a lesson from its affair with Huawei.
