Amazon Adding 4 New Delivery Stations to North HoustonJun 14, 2021
“We are excited to continue our investment in Texas with new delivery stations across Houston that will create hundreds of new job opportunities and provide faster and more efficient delivery for customers,” Amazon spokesperson, Daniel Martin
We're just about halfway through 2021 and Amazon recently announced plans to add four new delivery stations in Houston. This will include three new build-to-suit facilities totaling around 500,000 square feet.
What is the purpose of these Amazon delivery stations? Once a product is packaged in the nearest fulfillment center/sorting facility, it is then shipped to a local delivery station to be loaded onto vehicles for final delivery to customers.
These four new sites in Houston will be located at the following:
Two in NW Houston. A 260,000 sq ft building currently standing at 9155 Derrington Rd. A second facility will be built at 11311 N Gessner Dr (about 140,000 sq ft).
The third delivery station will be a 220,000 sq ft facility that Amazon is developing at Northcrest and Spring Steubner in Spring, TX.
The fourth development is a 140,000 sq ft facility at Interstate 59 and Grand Prkwy in Porter.
Each of the four new Amazon delivery stations is expected to open later this year, providing 300+ full-time jobs to the area. This comes amid an apparent ramp-up of activity by Amazon in the last year. In December, the e-commerce giant announced plans for a 1 million square-foot fulfillment center farther south in Harris County, in Missouri City. That project is also expected to open in 2021.
Almost exactly a year ago, Amazon announced the start of construction on an 850,000 sq ft fulfillment center in Richmond (2021 completion). "In addition, the firm opened its Amazon Clay 99 Sort Center, an 805.6K SF build-to-suit facility in Katy, in October."
