Try apt-move or apt-zip:
$ apt-cache show apt-move
Maintainer: Herbert Xu <email@example.com>
Depends: awk, bc (>= 1.05a-6), dpkg-dev (>= 126.96.36.199), debianutils (>= 1.13.1), libapt-pkg2.7, libc6 (>= 2.1.94), libstdc++2.10, libstdc++2.10-glibc2.2
Description: Move cache of Debian packages into a mirror hierarchy
apt-move is used to move a collection of Debian package files into a
proper archive hierarchy of the form debian/dists/... It is intended
as a tool to help manage the apt-get(8) file cache, but could be
configured to work with any collection of Debian packages.
Running apt-move periodically will assist in managing the resulting
partial mirror by optionally removing obsolete packages, and creating
valid local Packages.gz files. It can also optionally employ rsync(1)
to build a partial or complete local mirror of a Debian binary
distribution (including an ``installed-packages only'' mirror).
$ apt-cache show apt-zip
Maintainer: Santi Bejar <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Depends: apt (>= 0.3.10)
Description: Update a non-networked computer using apt and removable media
These scripts simplify the process of using dselect and apt on a
non-networked Debian box, using removable media like ZIP floppies.
One generates a `fetch' script (supporting backends such as wget and
lftp, in a modular, extensible way) to be run on a host with better
connectivity, check space constraints of your removable media, and
then install the package on your Debian box.
Note on current version: space-checking is not done and spanning
multiple disks is not yet supported.
