New Amazon Delivery Facility in League City
Amazon Logistics plans to open a new 180,000 square foot delivery station located in League City. The new delivery station will power Amazon’s last-mile delivery capabilities to speed up deliveries for customers around Galveston County. Packages are shipped to delivery stations from neighboring Amazon fulfillment and sortation centers and loaded onto vehicles for final delivery to customers
“We are extremely excited about Amazon coming to League City,” said League City Mayor Pat Hallisey. “Not only will it bring jobs, but it will benefit a large majority of our residents, as well as those in neighboring cities, who regularly shop on Amazon.”
On top of Amazon’s industry-leading minimum starting wage of $15 per hour, full-time employees receive comprehensive benefits, including full medical, vision and dental insurance as well as a 401(k) with 50 percent company match. In addition, Amazon supports employees with paid leave so they can take time off without having to worry about missing a paycheck. The company also offers up to 20 weeks of maternal and parental paid leave and innovative benefits such as Leave Share and Ramp Back, which give new parents flexibility to support their growing families.
“We’re excited to continue our investment in South Texas with a new delivery station in League City to provide fast and efficient delivery for customers and great pay, benefits, and a safe work environment for the talented local workforce,” said Daniel Martin, Amazon spokesperson.
Amazon expects the site located at 2455 Tuscan Lakes Blvd to employ about 200 people. Interested candidates are encouraged to visit Amazon Delivers for more information on job postings and to apply online.
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. To learn more, visit Logistics and Flex.
“As we work to attract more commercial development and diversify our tax base, I am thrilled that League City staff members were able to attract Amazon to our community,” said League City Manager John Baumgartner. “League City is a great place to live, work, and play, and we hope to attract more companies like Amazon to our area in the future.”
