TECHNOLOGY AND TRANSPORTATION INFRASTRUCTURE

Businesses located in the Innovation Crescent™ can move people and products with ease—locally, nationally or internationally. What’s more, they can do it by air, sea, rail and road, making Georgia the #2 ranked state nationally in exports. And, when it comes to exchanging information, organizations located here can take advantage of the region’s superior broadband connectivity and communications infrastructure to conduct business efficiently.

A Glimpse at Our Transportation Infrastructure

Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, located in the Innovation Crescent, is the world’s most traveled airport with scheduled, direct flights to 75 countries and 150 U.S. cities every day. The airport’s three cargo complexes move 650,000-plus tons of cargo annually and the adjacent Georgia Foreign Trade Zone site accelerates movement of goods from port.

IN 2015, HARTSFIELD BECAME THE FIRST AIRPORT TO TRANSPORT 1,000,000 PASSENGERS IN ONE YEAR.

Organizations located in the Innovation Crescent can take advantage of the three major U.S. interstates running through the region, and four in the state. These interstates allow companies to reach 80 percent of the U.S. market by truck in two days or less.

Georgia’s 5,000 miles of railroad track means the state has one of the most extensive rail systems in the nation for moving freight. And because these miles of track are integrated with shipping on the Georgia coast, Savannah, Ga., is the largest intermodal hub in the Southeast.
