Parcel delivery giant Hermes has become the latest firm to agree to move onto a major new logistics site in the county - creating some 150 jobs in the process.
It will be capable of handling more than 220,000 parcels a day and operate around the clock.
That's double the capacity at its existing site in nearby Quarry Wood.
The UK's largest dedicated parcel company will create 50 full-time jobs and 100 part-time posts when the site becomes operational later this year.
Ross Wilson, depot general manager at Hermes UK, said: "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."
