FedEx’s claim it “inadvertently misrouted” Huawei-related packages to the United States is not consistent with the facts according to a recent investigation by relevant authorities, People’s Daily reported on Friday.

FedEx was also found to be involved in the detention of more than 100 Huawei-related shipments to China from abroad.

Investigators found clues relating to other behavior from FedEx’s which breached laws and regulations, the report said.

Further investigation into FedEx (China) Co Ltd is underway, based on law and following the principles of comprehensiveness, objectivity and fairness.

In May FedEx rerouted four packages bound for Huawei’s headquarters in Shenzhen, Guangdong province to the United States, claiming “inadvertent misrouting.”
