Delia Hynds appointment AO

Arthur Oakley Transport has recruited a new sales manager as it sets its views on expanding the business.

The Palletways member hired Delia Hynds from fellow Palletways member International Forwarding. With seven years of experience in the sector, Hynds has also worked for TNT and Palletforce.

Roger Oakley, owner of Arthur Oakley Transport, said the move complemented growth plans for the business, which include the construction of a new 10,000ft2 high bay warehouse this year.

He added: "Appointing Delia demonstrates the importance we place on recruiting the best people in the industry. She brings with her considerable knowledge of the logistics market and her industry experience is second to none."

Hynds added: "Arthur Oakley is a platinum member of Palletways, a respected name in the logistics industry, and they have worked together for the last seven years.

"Combined, they're a real force to be reckoned with and I’m delighted to be on board. Arthur Oakley is a mature, established business and, I’m keen to further develop its customer base, grow the order book and take the business to the next level.”
