APN acknowledges Hilary Devey's huge contribution to the pallet network sector
“The Association of Pallet Networks (APN) would like to acknowledge the considerable contribution of the late Hilary Devey to the formation and development of our sector.
“It was with great sadness that her colleagues throughout the sector learned of Hilary’s death. She was a unique and vibrant person, and was one of the earliest members and supporters of the APN. For many years she remained an inspirational and effective member of our association.
“Hilary made an impression wherever she went. She was a born entrepreneur and innovator. She raised the profile of logistics. She forged a successful pallet network business when the concept was still being proven. She went on to create a larger-than-life personal brand, which extended to TV.
“She was awarded an CBE for services to the transport industry and charity in 2013.
“We would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to Hilary’s family. They may rest assured that she will be missed.”
Paul Sanders, chairman of APN
