Morgan County boasts a diverse economic base, from nearly 20 Fortune 500 companies to innovative entrepreneurs and small business owners. Also Decatur is a commerce hub and primary artery for railroads with both CSX Transportation Systems and Norfolk-Southern maintaining rails through the area. The nearby interstate highway system, Huntsville International Airport (with intermodal system) and the Tennessee River have made Decatur a prime location for business. Decatur has one of the largest barge terminals along the 650-mile Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway, making the city a vital link for goods shipped from the Great Lakes.
