When the master planners of Hartsfield-Jackson devised one of the world’s largest passenger terminals, they provided flexibility for the movement of cargo in the design as well.

There are three main air cargo complexes at Hartsfield-Jackson: North, Midfield and South. The total on-airport air cargo warehouse space measures 2 million square feet.

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 United States.

Hartsfield-Jackson's North and South Cargo Complexes maintain independent refueling and support systems, which allow quick turnaround for Airport cargo operators.

More than 200 million people, 80 percent of U.S. consumers, are within two hours' flight time from Hartsfield-Jackson, or one day's trucking by highway.

Hartsfield-Jackson maintains more than 1.5 million square feet (135,000 square meters) of cargo handling space in the North, South and Midfield Cargo Complexes. Each complex offers excellent dockside access to interstate highways 75, 85, 285 and 20.

Hartsfield-Jackson is the only airport in the Southeast to be 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.

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 is designated as a U.S. Fish & Wildlife Port of Entry.

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.
