Monroe, LA – In a significant development for northeast Louisiana, Monroe is set to welcome a new 56,000 sq-ft Amazon distribution facility at the intersection of Luffey Drive and I-20 N Frontage Road, east of Louisiana Delta Community College. The announcement was made by Mayor Ellis and the City of Monroe, expressing enthusiasm about the potential economic impact.

The new facility, designed to serve as a last-mile distribution hub, is part of Amazon’s strategy to enhance customer service in Monroe and throughout northeast Louisiana. The launch plans are in the early stages, with construction scheduled to commence in the coming weeks.

Jessica Breaux, Senior Manager of Economic Development for Amazon, expressed gratitude for the collaboration with Mayor Ellis, the City of Monroe, and the North Louisiana Economic Partnership. More details about the project are expected to be shared in the near future.

Mayor Ellis shared his excitement about the development, emphasizing the positive impact it would have on the local community. “The job opportunities and growth potential this partnership provides will change outcomes for local families. We are grateful Monroe’s potential is being recognized, and this investment is being made in our city,” said Mayor Ellis.

The hourly wages for employees in customer fulfillment and transportation roles typically range between $17 and $28. Job opportunities, including both full-time and part-time positions, will be announced closer to the facility’s operational launch. Further details about career opportunities will also be provided at that time.

The new Amazon distribution facility is expected to contribute not only to job creation but also to the overall economic development of Monroe. As construction progresses, the city anticipates positive outcomes and increased recognition as an economic hub in the region.
