Courier Services to Cuban Embassy in Austria Suspended

The TNT Österreich Company, an Austrian subsidiary of TNT Express N.V. (Netherlands), has permanently suspended the international courier services normally offered to the Cuban embassy in Austria, the Cubaminrex Web site reported on Thursday.

The text specifies that the company informed the measure in writing to the Cuban mission through its Customer Service Office, because the company has been purchased by the U.S. company FedEx Corporation.

The note adds that as a result of the above and “on the basis of established guidelines” (by the United States), TNT will not be able to receive orders from Cuba or from other countries under sanctions by Washington.

Cubaminrex points out that TNT does not recognize the antidote regulations in force in Austria and the European Union and applies extraterritorially U.S. blockade measures to Cuba.
