FedEx Corp has apologised to Huawei Technologies for the unauthorised re-routing of packages sent by the Chinese telecommunications equipment maker to its offices in Asia and shipping these to the American courier delivery company’s headquarters in the US.
“We value all our customers who hand more than 15 million packages per day to us for delivery,” wrote FedEx in a statement posted on Chinese microblogging site Sina Weibo. The US company said it apologises for the “mistransportation” of a small number of Huawei shipments. FedEx said “there are no external parties” involved in the erroneous shipment of those packages to the US.
Huawei, the world’s largest telecoms equipment supplier, had earlier accused FedEx of diverting to the US, without any authorisation, two packages that the Chinese company sent from Japan and bound for its offices on the mainland.
