APS Stevedoring LLC, an auto and general/breakbulk cargo stevedoring company headquartered in Long Beach, Calif., recently added to its terminal and stevedoring locations with Hyundai Motor’s Portland, Oregon, Terminal 6 - Berth 601 auto terminal.

 

On May 2, 2012 APS discharged 976 imported Hyundai units and loaded back 179 Ford exports to Eukor Car Carriers’ M/V Ryujin.


The two major car carriers at this facility are Eukor Car Carriers Inc and Glovis. Additionally, K Line and MOL have occasional space charters. Current auto makers include Hyundai for imports, with an estimated annual volume of 80,000 units, and Ford for export, with other possible export manufacturers to come. Average units per arrival are 1,500.


APS Stevedoring is in charge of the terminal receiving, using ILWU clerks, and the vessel stevedoring at Berth 601. In June, APS will be taking over the terminal side of operations at Berth 607 for Honda, who leases that terminal from the port. APS has appointed Ben Thamert as manager for its Portland operations.


APS Stevedoring already has operations in Richmond, Calif., servicing Subaru, Honda, MOL, Act Maritime, K Line and NYK.  The company plans to expand throughout the U.S. West Coast as opportunities present themselves.
APS has extended capabilities and services though its relationship with AWC, North America’s largest auto processing company with operations at 22 port, plant and rail locations in the U.S. and Canada.
