“This unprecedented event showcases the operational strength and depth of our organization by leveraging the power and broad reach of our multiple selling platforms,” said Doug Feick in a news release we issued about the massive event.

“Combining our web platforms and our auction network with our operational excellence and marketing prowess, we will sell a staggering amount of inventory stored across multiple Ritchie Bros. auction sites, GovPlanet storage yards, and warehouses, in one massive well-coordinated event.”


Pulling this off will be a huge operational exercise as we have tens of thousands of items stored in dozens of locations that need to be sorted, organized, photographed and uploaded to GovPlanet to be marketed and sold. Thankfully we have the team to do it. 


“This auction is a massive undertaking that we alone are uniquely positioned to handle,” said Conner Humphrey, Vice President, GovPlanet.
