The location, which is expected to open at 2455 Tuscan Lake Blvd. in early 2022, will power Amazon’s “last-mile” delivery capabilities to speed up deliveries for Galveston County customers. Delivery stations receive packages from neighboring Amazon fulfillment and sortation centers and are then loaded onto vehicles for final delivery, the release said.
“We are extremely excited about Amazon coming to League City,” League City Mayor Pat Hallisey said in a news release. “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.”
Amazon offers a starting wage of $15 per hour, comprehensive benefits for full-time employees, 401(k) with a 50% company match, paid leave, up to 20 weeks of maternity and paternity leave, and other perks, according to the release.
“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,” League City City Manager John Baumgartner said in the release. “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.”

“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,” Amazon spokesperson Daniel Martin said in the release.
Amazon is opening a delivery station in La Marque later this year.
