IronPlanet celebrates the 13th anniversary of its first online auction today, the company announced. The Internet marketplace specializes in used heavy equipment.
More than $3 billion in equipment sold during that time. IronPlanet's first auction featured one seller, 32 bidders and 22 items. By comparison, IronPlanet’s late March auction this year in the U.S. featured 200 sellers, a total of 1,900 bidders in 44 countries and 953 items.
