Norfolk Southern is shifting its headquarters from Virginia to leverage Atlanta's location as a major transportation hub.

Norfolk Southern Corporation plans to move its headquarters from Virginia to Fulton County, Atlanta, joining other transportation heavyweights such as Delta Air Lines and UPS in leveraging Atlanta's major transportation hub. NS is investing $575 million in the move, which it says will create 850 new jobs.

In addition to its headquarters, the new campus will house dispatch operations, an operations and service support center, crew management center, corridor operations offices, national customer service center, administrative functions, marketing department and police communications center.

While the move to Atlanta has already begun, it will take several years for the new headquarters to be completed.
