Ritchie Bros. will begin selling hundreds of non-rolling stock items for the U.S. Department of Defense each week through its online marketplace For the past three and a half years the U.S. DoD has been selling its surplus rolling stock assets—Humvees, utility trailers, cargo trucks, etc.—through the GovPlanet marketplace. Late last year, Ritchie Bros. signed an additional contract to now sell all U.S. DoD non-rolling stock assets through GovPlanet as well. The first non-rolling stock auction launched July 17.

Ritchie Bros. has scheduled U.S. DoD auctions through GovPlanet each week, with non-rolling stock assets being sold on Tuesdays and rolling stock assets sold on Wednesdays.

"We are now the one-stop-shop for all surplus assets from the U.S. Department of Defense," said Conner Humphrey, Vice President, GovPlanet. "The non-rolling stock assets include everything from shop tools, warehouse and consumer goods, office furniture and so much more. All of it will be sold exclusively through our GovPlanet marketplace—it's free to register and very easy to use. I encourage interested bidders to go online and check out the inventory today—you never know what you might find."

Asset highlights in the July 17 non-rolling stock auction included storage containers, equipment parts, ammo cans, filing cabinets, tools and consumer electronics.
