Amazon Coming to Prince George’s County

Largo, Maryland (Thursday, July 2, 2020) – Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks announced today that Amazon has signed leases to bring two last mile delivery stations to the County, streamlining the delivery process to residents. One last mile facility will be located in an industrial area on Prince George’s Blvd. in Upper Marlboro and the other will be in an industrial park on Willow Dale Rd. in Lanham.

“We are so excited for what Amazon and its last mile facilities will bring to the County, along with the employment and entrepreneurship opportunities they will provide,” said Alsobrooks. “When this coronavirus leaves our community, and it will, we want to make certain we have done everything we can to continue to attract diverse businesses and opportunities for our residents, as we work to grow our commercial tax base, and ensure that our economy recovers stronger than ever.”

County officials estimate the facilities will create hundreds of full-time and part-time jobs paying a minimum of $15 per hour plus benefits. These delivery stations also offer entrepreneurs the opportunity to build their own business delivering Amazon packages, as well as independent contractors the flexibility to create their own schedule for delivering for Amazon Flex.

Amazon’s goal is to locate its last mile facilities in areas with a high demand, which is why the company is opening two facilities in Prince George’s County to meet the volume and demand of the residents.

Also last month, Amazon announced that it is bringing its Amazon Future Engineer program, to 132 Prince George’s County Public Schools. The computer science program is expected to benefit more than 49,000 PGCPS students.
