Amazon plans to establish a last-mile operation in Caddo Parish, Louisiana. The project is expected to create more than 1,000 jobs.

The new 87,000-square foot facility will be located at the Shreve Park Industrial Campus located off Highway 3132. Construction is scheduled to begin in the coming weeks.

“Shreveport is a great place to live and work, and we’re pleased to be setting local roots here,” said Jessica Breaux, Amazon Senior Manager of Economic Development. “With the opening of our state-of-the-art fulfillment center that is slated for next year and now this delivery station, we will be hiring for more than 1,000 local, good jobs and able to serve customers faster and better in and around Shreveport. We appreciate the support of our great partners, including the North Louisiana Economic Partnership, the Greater Shreveport Chamber of Commerce, City of Shreveport, and Caddo Parish.”

The company has been working directly with the Greater Shreveport Chamber of Commerce and the North Louisiana Economic Partnership.

“We congratulate Amazon and thank them for their commitment to the Shreveport community,” noted North Louisiana Economic Partnership President & CEO Justyn Dixon. “This additional investment is a testament to our excellent business climate and the advantages of our geographical location in North Louisiana.”
