FedEx refused a Huawei phone to the US amidst Huawei ban

The Huawei ban in the US has many American corporations afraid to have anything else to do with the Huawei. The corporate used to be explicitly banned from doing industry with American tech corporations ultimate month by way of the Trump Administration due to “safety issues”.

A pissed off member of PC Magazine tweeted about a state of affairs the place a UK-based member of the group meant to ship a Huawei P30 Pro for checking out to Indianapolis by means of FedEx, simplest to in finding the bundle used to be returned to the UK sender. A big notice used to be slapped onto the bundle, which contained the Huawei phone that learn “parcel returned by way of FedEx, Due U.S. Government factor with Huawei and China govt. RTS”.

Of path, the courier knew the contents of the bundle due to the required customs bureaucracy. However, it seems the govt order used to be misinterpreted by way of whichever customs agent treated the parcel. PC Magazine went on to test with UPS who mentioned it will gladly shipping the parcel to the US. Confirming this with each UPS and Huawei, there is not any such legislation that banned the importation of Huawei units.

The order blacklists US corporations and networks from partnering with the Chinese telecom large – which has not anything to do with transporting a phone to the US that used to be already bought in other places. FedEx determined it will fairly now not even care for the factor. Understandably so, as the complete ban has been a complicated mess and we will be able to’t blame a corporate that might fairly now not care for this grey space.

Huawei P30 Pro

Anyway, the business warfare between China the US continues to be occurring and not using a deal in sight. President Trump has up to now admitted that the US could be keen to negotiate Huawei’s destiny in the US if it would leverage a business deal.

So yeah, if you want to send a legally received Huawei phone into the US, UPS is surely up to the job.


Let’s block commercials! (Why?)
