(Yicai Global) May 23 -- DHL's Chinese arm has refuted a report claiming the express courier's Hong Kong unit stopped servicing Huawei Technologies as other American firms sever links with the Chinese tech giant following a US government action to restrict Huawei's business.
DHL will continue to provide high-quality international express delivery services for all customers, including Huawei, DHL-Sinotrans International Air Courier, the joint venture of Deutsche Post DHL Group and Sinotrans Air Transportation Development, said in a statement.
Logistics platform 4PX Express posted a report on WeChat on May 22, alleging that DHL Hong Kong has cancelled Huawei's shipments.
The report came after the Trump administration on May 15 added Shenzhen-based Huawei, China's biggest tech company, and 70 affiliates to a list of firms that need to apply for a special permit to buy technology from US companies. Google, Intel and Qualcomm are among those reported to have cut their ties with Huawei.
