FedEx lawsuit against the Trump administration stems from the inability of the police, the hundreds of thousands of shipments for regulatory violations, according to the words of their Chairman of the Board.

It is almost impossible for FedEx to exactly what is the technology that is coming in their deliveries, and where it is, the Chairman of the company, Fred Smith, Bret Baier Monday said on “Special Report”.

“We contacted the Department of Commerce today, and said that the increasing use of restrictions on exports and imports of the Commerce Department in different geopolitical and trade policy disputes only an impossible burden for FedEx, and common carriers,” he said.

“Because, under the Department of Commerce’s regulations, we expected that the COP for these export and import controls – are a total of around 1,100 persons now added to this list, and five were only last Friday.

“We are in accordance with the regulations of the Department, to confirm that the verse who can or can’t tell the truth – is in accordance with these export regulations. Despite the fact that we process 15 million items of mail per day, if we make a mistake on one of them… we will have a fine of $250,000 per piece.”

In a statement earlier on Monday, the company said, to complain of his decision.

“As a company, the read comply with all laws and regulations in the countries we serve, FedEx strongly supports the objectives of the U.S. export control laws,” the statement.

“FedEx is a transportation company, not a law enforcement authority.”

Shortly after Smith’s interview, trade Minister Wilbur Ross told Fox News: “The regulation States that the common carrier may not knowingly ship items that are in contradiction to the entity list, or other export control authorities. It does not require a common carrier to be a policeman or to know what is in each package.”

The lawsuit comes after the Chinese tech company Huawei called for clarification from FedEx, after he apologized for this failure to ship a-brand device, designed for the United States.

China’s foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said the company should have released a statement to FedEx a statement to say that an “operational error” was to blame for the package not delivered to the United States, reports Reuters.

On Friday, PCMag said FedEx refused to ship a package, which reportedly include a Huawei-phone. The package was delivered, from the UK and bound for the United States, was finally returned, after about five hours in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Smith responded to the situation in his interview with Baier.

“It was the third in the UK, where a relatively new teammate – because the box Huawei said it failed the rules, and not the acceptance of the package to be interpreted.”

Smith said the Problem is a metaphor for the “confusing situations” that may arise, the rare broadcast was, “is an international cause celebre.”
