Global Commerce

Fulton County, the center of the metro Atlanta region, capitalizes on its status as a Fortune 500 destination, from Delta Air Lines to Coca-Cola. One of the world’s busiest airports, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International, and easy access to the Port of Savannah, the single largest and fastest-growing container terminal in America, along with thousands of miles of highways and rail that connect Fulton County to the port, ensure businesses can easily sell their goods around the world.

Life Sciences

Recognized as the Center of Global Health, Fulton County and metro Atlanta are powerful hubs for the rapidly growing bioscience industry. Renowned national and global biomedical health organizations, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), American Cancer Society, Arthritis Foundation, CARE (Cooperation for Assistance and Relief Everywhere), The Carter Center, and the Task Force for Global Health call metro Atlanta home.

Further, metro Atlanta is a leader in areas of cold chain storage, fill and finish hematology and immunology, medical devices, and health IT.


The FinTech industry is one of Georgia's most important and fastest-growing sectors and Fulton County is a major global center for the sector. More than 160 FinTech organizations call Fulton County home, including global giants like NCR, Worldpay, Equifax, and Global Payments, as well as Atlanta industry disrupters such as Kabbage, Bitpay, Paymetric, GreenSky, ControlScan, GroundFloor, and Cardlytics. On par with London, New York, Zurich and Singapore, Fulton County is a global center for money, markets and transactions.

Logistics & Supply Chain Management

Fulton County was born as a transportation hub and thrives as a center for logistics and supply chain. The region has grown into a leading global logistics center for supply chain management due to its strong cluster of corporate headquarters that demand efficient supply chain services, a vital Southeast geographic location and robust infrastructure. Supply chain logistics and technology companies such as Dematic and BroadRange Logistics have already chosen Fulton County as their preferred location for growth.

From highways to rail to the frequency of flights, combined with an outstanding capital ecosystem, Fulton County is especially positioned for supply chain technology innovation and talent acquisition.

Film & Entertainment

For more than 40 years, the Georgia Film Office has been engaged in bringing film and television production to Georgia. The office maintains a locations database of thousands of properties, and provides scouting assistance as well as certifying projects for the state tax incentive.

With its temperate climate, great variety of locations, the world’s busiest airport, large crew base and pro-business focus, Fulton County is now a leading destination in the world for filming.
