Amazon Invests in Second Facility in Shreveport


Amazon is entering into an agreement for a new last-mile facility in Caddo Parish. This new facility will be approximately 87,000 square feet at the Shreve Park Industrial Campus located off Highway 3132. Launch plans for this delivery station are in the early stages, with construction scheduled to start in the coming weeks.

"In welcoming Amazon's decision, I am thrilled to announce that Shreveport and Caddo Parish are now at the forefront of innovation and progress,” said City of Shreveport Mayor Tom Arceneaux. “This significant milestone not only marks an exciting chapter for our community but also reinforces Shreveport's position as a key player in the global marketplace. Together, we are building a future where opportunities flourish and dreams find their wings.”

This facility will be the second Amazon location in Shreveport, with the first being a Robotics Fulfillment Center slated to open in mid-2024. At Robotics Fulfillment Centers, employees work side-by-side with robots to pick, pack, and ship customer orders such as books, toys, and housewares. A last-mile facility is where customer orders are prepared for delivery to customers.
