DOD has released an update involving FedEx shipping activities for items shipped from Pacific locations to Europe, CENTCOM AOR and intra Pacific. On August 4, 2009 DOD released a statement advising that in addition to an earlier restriction to ship to Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam, FedEx can now no longer accept shipments containing ITAR controlled items for movement between the following regions:
- APAC-Middle East
- Middle East-APAC
- Intra APAC
The only routing for ITAR controlled shipments is via the FedEx hub in China.
Don’t forget to always check the ITAR prior to booking a shipment to any of the above mentioned countries with FedEx.
