Evri have opened a new a new distribution depot in Aylesford, Maidstone at Panattoni Park, Bellingham Way. The additional space will expand on Evri’s parcel handling capabilities whist creating new jobs in the area.

The opening of the new 78,794 sq ft warehouse which became operational on October 9th, created around 50 full time jobs and 100 part time jobs.

The new facility can handle over 220K 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 Evri now has 30% electric vehicle ParcelShop fleet, smart lighting, rainwater harvesting, low carbon heating, solar panels and is built to BREEAM ‘Excellent’ certified specifications. 

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.
