NEW YORK (REUTERS) - Singapore's Neptune Orient Lines is looking to sell its APL Logistics division with the hope of fetching more than US$750 million (S$935 million), according to people familiar with the situation.

Shipping and logistics company Neptune is comprised of two major divisions - APL Logistics, a global freight management and logistics business, and a separate container shipping business named APL.

Neptune plans to launch a process in the fall to find a buyer for APL Logistics and has hired banks to assist with that effort, the sources said, asking not to be named.

A representative for Neptune had no immediate comment.
