transportation hub of the Southeastern United States - via
highway, railroad, and air.[3][4] Atlanta contains the world
headquarters of such large corporations as The Coca-Cola
Company, Georgia-Pacific, AT&T Mobility, the Cable News
Network, Delta Air Lines, and Turner Broadcasting. Atlanta has
the country's fourth-largest concentration of Fortune 500
companies (although UPS, Home Depot, and Newell
Rubbermaid are not within its city limits) and more than 75
percent of Fortune 1000 companies have business operations in
the metropolitan area, helping Atlanta realize a gross
metropolitan product of $270 billion, accounting for more than
2/3 of the Georgian economy. Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta
International Airport has been the world's busiest airport since
1998 (measured by number of passengers).
