In 2018, PBTS was awarded the contract to provide an Innovia APM 300 system to Shenzhen Airport. The system runs on a 3.2-kilometre line connecting an airside satellite to Terminal 3 and is currently being trialled before entering into full service this November.

Under the terms of the contract, PBTS will be responsible for the operation and maintenance of the system, including preventive maintenance and corrective maintenance of vehicles and core electromechanical equipment for five years.
