APS provides a loading alternative for container vessels anchored in mid-stream or moored to buoys in Hong Kong's harbour.
APS operates one of the largest fleets of dedicated barges in Hong Kong, delivering full support for both inbound and outbound operations. APS employs a team of over 300 staff members that manages cargo depots and floating yards. APS also offers a range of competitively priced cargo-handling services, including container maintenance, containerised and break-bulk cargo handling, container freight station, empty container storage (both inland and near-dock depots) and trucking services. It also provides marine feeder-shuttle services between Hong Kong and ports in the Pearl River Delta. In particular, APS currently runs feeder services between the Portfolio Container Terminals in Shenzhen, mainland China and Kwai Tsing, Hong Kong.
In 2004, APS set up an inland bonded depot in Beijing to provide integrated customs clearance between Beijing and Tianjin. Then, in 2007, Shenzhen Leading Edge Port Services Co. Ltd. was established as a joint venture to provide shipping agency services. The joint venture partner is Shenzhen United International Shipping Agency Company Limited, which is sponsored by the Ministry of Communications and China Ocean Shipping Agency Co., Ltd.
In 2007, a decision was reached to pool APS with Hutchison Logistics and SHICD to form a comprehensive logistics service provider called Port Services & Logistics (PS&L). PS&L aims to become a leading player in the logistics industry by harnessing the power of HPH's port network.
