According to its Annual report filed with the SEC for fiscal year 2018: "As disclosed in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended February 28, 2019, we previously identified the shipments described below involving P2P Mailing Limited (“P2P”), an e-commerce transportation solutions company that FedEx acquired in March 2018. P2P is based in the United Kingdom and organized under the laws of England and Wales. These shipments were not made in accordance with our internal policies and procedures and require disclosure pursuant to Section 219 of the Iran Threat Reduction and Syria Human Rights Act of 2012 and Section 13(r) of the Exchange Act.
P2P provides customers with unique low-cost international transportation solutions, leveraging its relationships with private, postal, retail and clearance providers in over 200 countries and territories. Its technology and processes provide plug-and-play options with carrier networks and customer systems. It came to our attention that from the date FedEx acquired P2P in March 2018 through early February 2019, P2P facilitated the shipment into Iran of approximately 120 packages through its TrakPak service offering and approximately 960 packages through its Untrak service offering. All of P2P’s customers that shipped packages to Iran sell consumer goods. The aggregate gross revenue for these shipments was £16,067 (approximately $19,500 as of the date of this Form 10-K/A) and the aggregate profit was £5,083 (approximately $6,200 as of the date of this Form 10-K/A). In the case of the TrakPak shipments, one of P2P’s vendors used Iran Air, an entity identified by the United States Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”) as owned or controlled by the Government of Iran (“GoI”), to move the shipments from the United Kingdom into Iran. Because all of the shipments in question were postal shipments, Iran Post, an entity FedEx understands to be owned or controlled by the GoI, provided the last-mile delivery for both the TrakPak and Untrak shipments after they arrived in Iran. P2P did not directly contract with, provide payment to or otherwise transact with Iran Air or Iran Post.
P2P does not intend to continue this activity. Promptly upon learning of these shipments, we put in place a mechanism designed to prevent shipments into Iran through P2P’s service offerings, and P2P has not facilitated any such shipments since that time. Additionally, we have implemented enhanced controls, procedures and other measures to ensure P2P’s compliance with our export controls and economic sanctions programs."
According to its Annual Report filed with the SEC for fiscal year 2013: "During 2013, a Dubai-based package consolidator tendered approximately 32,000 shipments to us for handling, including 16 separate shipments for delivery to branches of Mir Business Bank in Russia and branches of Bank Melli in Azerbaijan, Iraq and Germany. Both banks are identified on the list of Specially Designated Nationals maintained by the United States Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”). Each of these shipments contained only documents. The aggregate revenue for these shipments was $212. There was no profit associated with these shipments.
This consolidator also tendered six separate shipments to us for delivery to Iranian embassies and a consulate in Germany, Malaysia, Australia, Thailand and Argentina. These shipments contained documents, books, magazines, CDs, toys, nuts and/or candy. The aggregate revenue for these shipments was $218. There was no profit associated with these shipments.
The tendering of these shipments to us violated the terms of the written agreements between us and this consolidator.
Our handling of these shipments was inadvertent and not in accordance with our internal policies and procedures. Promptly upon learning of these shipments, we canceled our agreements with the consolidator described above and certain other Dubai-based package consolidators and discontinued certain services in Dubai. We have implemented enhanced controls, procedures and other measures in connection with our international trade compliance programs that are designed to prevent these activities from recurring."
