Cargo’s Importance

Air cargo is a critical economic generator at Hartsfield-Jackson, creating more than 27,000 jobs in Georgia and triggering more than $6.7 million in revenue for metro Atlanta.

Hartsfield-Jackson has seen year-over-year gains in the amount of cargo traffic, and is looking to break into the top tier of the world’s leading cargo airports.

Recently, Hartsfield-Jackson has made impressive strides to boost its cargo business. It handled more than 626,000 metric tons of cargo in 2015, growing cargo volume 4.15 percent over 2014.

Also in 2015, by leveraging its Air Service Incentive Program, the Airport offered more than $130,000 in incentives that waived parking and landing fees and provided marketing benefits to airlines that began cargo and passenger service to new international destinations.

Cargo Complexes

Hartsfield-Jackson has three main air cargo complexes – North, Midfield and South – with more than 1.5 million square feet (135,000 square meters) of cargo handling space.

Each complex has its own refueling and support systems, and each offers excellent dockside access to interstate highways 75, 85, 285 and 20. More than 200 million people, or 80 percent of the U.S. population, are within two hours’ flight time from Hartsfield-Jackson, or one day’s trucking by highway.

Georgia’s 1,244 miles of interstate highways have placed Atlanta and Hartsfield-Jackson among the nation’s major trucking hubs. More than 100 motor carriers provide expedited ground transportation for air cargo shipments.

Perishable Complex

In addition to the main cargo complexes, Hartsfield-Jackson houses a U.S. Department of Agriculture-approved Perishables Complex, the only one of its kind in the Southeast.

Hartsfield-Jackson has been approved by the USDA to apply cold treatment, an environmentally safe alternative to methyl bromide.

Atlanta Perishables Complex features on-site distribution and transport capabilities, USDA inspection services and a USDA-approved fumigation chamber.

Hartsfield-Jackson is designated as a U.S. Fish & Wildlife Port of Entry, allowing the facility to receive fish and wildlife shipments.

Georgia Foreign Trade Zone

Adjoining the Airport is the 250-acre Georgia Foreign Trade Zone, FTZ #26, which facilitates trade and increase the global competitiveness of companies doing business in Georgia by reducing operating costs associated with international trade.

Hartsfield-Jackson’s cargo services feature operations by more than 100 licensed customs brokers and 200 domestic and international freight forwarders.
