Details About the FCP
The Aerotropolis Atlanta Freight Cluster Plan (FCP) is a 14-month study of the freight industry’s operations in and through the Aerotropolis area. Freight movement is a multi-billion-dollar industry in Georgia and a major economic driver in the southern metropolitan Atlanta region. The FCP area was estimated to be $313 billion more than five years ago and has seen double-digit expansion since the last study was done.
The study will examine the existing and projected future conditions of freight movement around the airport and recommend improvements that will aid in the continued movement of cargo in and through the airport area.
The FCP will analyze how goods move around the Aerotropolis and how current and emerging trends in freight and logistics impact freight mobility.
Based on that analysis, the study team will then make recommendations for supporting safe and efficient freight movement in and around HJAIA and keeping this important economic engine viable. The study team, being led by Aerotropolis Atlanta Community Improvement Districts (AACIDs) will work closely with project partners, including the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC), the Aerotropolis Atlanta Alliance, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL), Fulton and Clayton Counties, and the cities of Hapeville, East Point, College Park, South Fulton and Forest Park and other stakeholders, to establish the vision, framework, and plan of action for supporting the freight industry in the Aerotropolis, while also considering the impacts on people who live and work in the area.

Watch the FCP Video
To better understand our purpose and the impact of freight movement throughtout the Aerotropolis region, we created an informative video to empower those that live work and play in this area. We are hopeful that this educational video will foster opportunities to support our outreach efforts where the goal is to to educate, inform and involve the public as to the purpose and progress of the FCP by highlighting local issues, technical considerations, and potential impacts.
The FCP study and outreach staff will be out in the community attending scheduled events to share educational and informational materials and collect feedback from the public. All events will be listed on this web page and also shared on Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin.
