Marine Infrastructure | Shipping and Logistics | APS Systems


International trade is integral to Australia’s economy and especially to the Marine infrastructure, shipping, and logistics industries. We are a net exporting nation, generating yearly exports of around $195 billion and importing around $187 billion per year, which makes our ports, wharfs, jetties, and other associated infrastructure critical to our nations continued development, prosperity and growth.

The APS team is inherently aware that properly managed marine infrastructure can provide significant benefits to Australian business and the wider public but must be regularly inspected, maintained, managed. With this knowledge, the APS team is committed to delivering world-class and innovative results when providing our core engineering, fabrication, scaffolding, rigging, specialist access, and inspection services.
