Well located in Kent, sitting just off the M20, the town has access to the High Speed One railway and good links to the continent via the Channel Tunnel at Folkstone or ferries departing from the Kent ports. This puts London just 40 minutes away by train and Paris can be done in under three hours.
With such good links it's not surprising that this town is one of the fastest growing in the country. The population has all but doubled in the last ten years and currently stands at over 120,000. Given its profile, it's not too surprising to learn that Distribution, hotels and restaurants make up the major employers in the area. But health, public administration and finance are also big players - and agriculture remains important for this town located as it is in the "garden of England": Kent.

Getting goods, services or people from Point A to Point B is rarely as easy as it sounds. And since it can make a huge impact on a company's profits, the science of logistics has become increasingly important. Road, rail, air and sea all play their part in the transport network around Britain - and navigating those networks requires brains as well as brawn. More and more colleges and universities are offering courses in logistics but you can also start at the ground floor at a distribution centre. Your career path is likely to involve a move into management - that's managing people and the transport systems. And with European countries key to the export market, start brushing up on your geography and languages.
