Amazon's Delivery Station in La Marque will bring hundreds of new jobs to our city, ranging from drivers to primary management positions and team leads.

Amazon Logistics plans to open a new 180,000 square foot delivery station located in La Marque, Texas. 

Amazon's Delivery Station in La Marque will bring hundreds of new jobs to our city, ranging from drivers to primary management positions and team leads.  

The Delivery Station is located at 4975 Gulf Freeway, just south of Gulfway Plaza and north of Team Mancuso Powersports in a large tract of land near Abundant Life Christian Center. Amazon expects the site to open later in 2021. 

“The City of La Marque is proud that Amazon chose to call us home for this distribution center," said La Marque City Manager Tink Jackson. "The additional jobs within our city will provide great new opportunities for our citizens. Today’s announcement is the culmination of months of work. We are both humbled by and proud of Amazon’s decision.”

Drivers are expected to leave the facility midmorning and return after evening rush hour, minimizing the impact on citizens in nearby neighborhoods. 

The new delivery station will power Amazon’s last-mile delivery capabilities to speed up deliveries for customers around Galveston County.

Amazon is a great place to work with highly competitive pay, benefits from day-one, and training programs for in-demand jobs. This delivery station will create hundreds of full- and part-time jobs, paying a minimum of $15 per hour and offering a variety of benefits packages from day one.

Delivery stations also offer entrepreneurs the opportunity to build their own business delivering Amazon packages, as well as independent contractors the flexibility to be their own boss and create their own schedule delivering for Amazon Flex.

The delivery station will be Amazon’s first delivery station in Galveston County. Amazon has more than 150 delivery stations across the United States.

“We are excited to continue to invest in Texas with a new delivery station in La Marque that will create hundreds of new job opportunities and provide faster and more efficient delivery for customers," said Daniel Martin, Amazon Spokesperson. "We look forward to continuing our growth in Texas and want to thank local and state leaders for their support in making this project possible.” 

Amazon is committed to building a sustainable business for its customers and the planet. In 2019, Amazon co-founded The Climate Pledge—a commitment to be net zero carbon by 2040. They will implement long-range plans to reduce emissions and utilize renewable energy at all facilities across the United States, including the new Delivery Sation in La Marque.
