La Marque, TX — Amazon Logistics plans to open a new 180,000 square foot delivery station located in La Marque, Texas. The new delivery station will power Amazon’s last-mile delivery capabilities to speed up deliveries for customers around Galveston County.
Delivery Stations power the last mile of Amazon’s order process and help increase efficiency of deliveries for customers. Packages are shipped to delivery stations from neighboring Amazon fulfillment and sortation centers and loaded into vehicles for final delivery to customers.
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.

Amazon expects the site located at 4975 Gulf Freeway to open later in 2021. The delivery station will be Amazon’s first delivery station in Galveston County. Amazon has more than 150 delivery stations across the United States.
