A tech writer from the UK tried to send a Huawei mobile phone to the US, but the phone was returned. The shipper in the UK filled out a form indicating the make and model of the phone (Huawei) and was surprised to have the phone returned to him without reaching the US.
As you are aware, Huawei was recently added to the BIS “Entity List” that prevents companies from exporting goods to Huawei. However, this ban does not impact individuals who are shipping phones.
FedEx did indicate the phone was returned by mistake and that they are aware there is no ban on shipment of Huawei products.
