No one will ever forget where they were when they heard the news of September 11, 2001. It was one of the darkest days in U.S. history, one that impacted not only the course of our history, but also our nation’s psyche. On that day the country stood still to collectively mourn this tragic, unexpected event.

Today marks the 15th anniversary of 9/11.

Days like today remind us of how connected we truly are. Like the roads our drivers use every day bring us together, this tragedy brought together everyone in the nation.

The impacts were felt in all industries. Trade security became a priority in the supply chain industry. Various initiatives were introduced in the years that followed stressing the importance of protecting each part of the supply chain against the terrorist threat.

As a nation we say, “We will never forget.” And, we won’t.

AAGEX Freight Group remembers all of the people killed in the attacks that took place that day, and honors the first responders that became heroes.
