Maidstone Depot October 2022

Evri has opened a new distribution depot in Aylesford, Maidstone.

Around 50 full-time jobs and 100 part-time jobs have been created at the 78,794sq ft warehouse at Panattoni Park on Bellingham Way, which was fully operational from 9 October.

The new facility can handle over 220,000 parcels each day, over double as many as its previous site a few miles away, with the ability to operate 24/7 if required.

It forms part of the ongoing investment programme by Evri to expand its capacity to meet the huge demand created by people shopping at home during the pandemic and the continuing growth in the sector.

To support Evri’s ESG commitments, the new depot comes complete with EV charging as 30% of Evri's electric vehicle ParcelShop fleet is now electric.

It also boasts smart lighting, rainwater harvesting, low carbon heating, solar panels and is built to BREEAM ‘Excellent’ certified specifications.

Gemma Jones, Evri depot general manager said: "We are all very excited to have moved into our new home. It shows the faith the business has in Team Maidstone to deliver a world class service from this world class facility. We are all very grateful for this opportunity and would just like to say a big thank you to everyone who has helped make this happen."
