China Rebuffs Fedex’s Claim It Failed to Deliver Huawei Parcels by Mistake

BEIJING – China has rejected American courier company FedEx’s excuse that it had failed to deliver Chinese tech giant Huawei’s packages by mistake, the state-owned news agency Xinhua reported on Friday.

According to a preliminary investigation by Chinese authorities, the United States-based delivery firm violated the law by “holding up” over 100 Huawei packages that did not reach their destinations.

FedEx’s justified its failure to deliver the packages by claiming it was due to an “operational error.”

Chinese authorities said the excuse did not add up with the known facts and vowed to continue their “thorough” investigation, which they described as “objective and fair.”

At the beginning of June, China started to investigate FedEx for the supposed misdelivery of packages sent by Huawei to destinations in Asia that somehow ended up in the US.

Beijing also suspects that FedEx tried to delay the delivery of more than 100 packages sent by the tech colossus within China.

The investigation was launched shortly after the Asian giant announced the upcoming creation of a blacklist of foreign companies which is set to include organizations and individuals that – according to Beijing – severely hamper the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese companies.

According to China’s ministry of commerce, the list will include foreign entities that adopt discriminatory measures against Chinese entities, violate market rules or breach the spirit of contract for non-commercial purposes.

It will also include those that cause real damage to Chinese companies or related industries, considering they could pose a real or potential threat to China’s national security.

However, details regarding the rules that determine entry into that blacklist and the names of the companies that will be on it have yet to be made public.

The blacklist was announced just two weeks after Washington banned Huawei from conducting business in the US on grounds of the Chinese firm representing an alleged threat to the US’ national security.
