Huawei and state-owned logistics firm China Post on Wednesday signed a strategic cooperation agreement, the Chinese technology giant said in a statement.

The two sides will deepen cooperation and pursue mutual development in finance, technological innovation, express logistics and talent cultivation, it said.

The statement came only days after the Chinese government launched a probe into US courier FedEx for re-routing Huawei’s parcels to the US. Huawei said earlier it is reviewing its relationship with FedEx.

The cooperation will involve businesses including smart logistics, cloud computing and big data, with the aim of boosting the use of information and communication technology in China Post’s financial, delivery and postal business, and accelerate China Post’s ICT digital transformation.

In addition, China Post and Huawei will jointly establish a laboratory for new technology application. The Postal Savings Bank of China, an affiliate of China Post, will collaborate with Huawei to build an innovation center.
