Shipping Container Costs to Atlanta, United States of America

Known as the 'city in a forest', Atlanta, Georgia is a beautiful, unique city with a unique blend of southern hospitality and modern northern influence. It is the capital and largest city in Georgia, as well as a hub of travel and transportation for the southeastern United States. Atlanta International Airport is the busiest airport in the entire world, topping cities such as London, New York and Los Angeles. Atlanta has thrived throughout the years, becoming an early adopter of modern and post-modern architecture, which can be seen today in its downtown skyline. The city was a hub for the Civil Rights Movement in the 60's and was home to influential people, such as Martin Luthur King, Jr. Atlanta has a rich history, but an even more promising future. Expats can benefit from the city's low cost of living, which is 6% below the U.S. average and has a rich and diverse population, as well as being a centre for industry around the world. The city is home to major corporations such as Coca-Cola, UPS and Delta Airlines. It has also become known for it's media enterprises (Turner Broadcasting and Tyler Perry Studios), as well as being a centre for film and television.
