Eurotunnel has added five access lanes from the M20 and is now able to take more trucks from Folkestone.
The five new access lanes will speed traffic off the M20 at junction 11A and lead to improved motoring conditions for local communities.
The expansion has seen the Channel Tunnel operator buy three new freight shuttles as it aims to increase flow rates.
The new check-in facility will allow Eurotunnel to process enough trucks to fill a shuttle departure every seven and a half minutes.
Chairman and chief executive Jacques Gounon said: “The UK economy continues to grow and trade with Europe is a huge part of that.
“This new access and check-in facility for trucks will ensure that Eurotunnel is in good shape to carry the commercial loads that the UK economy generates and will help keep traffic flowing in Kent.”
