Fort Worth auction attracts 14,700+ bidders from 68 countries

Record equipment and truck pricing continued in Texas last week, with our first Fort Worth auction of the year generating more than US$79+ million in gross transaction value. The three-day online auction attracted 14,700+ bidders from 68 countries to compete for 4,600+ items from 770+ consignors.

"We continue to see unprecedented demand for equipment and trucks in today's market, driving prices well beyond expectations—especially for transportation equipment," said Neal Black, Ritchie Bros.' Regional Sales Manager.

"Last week in Fort Worth we sold a 2019 Peterbilt 389 6x4 day cab for US$210,000, a 2019 Western Star 4900FA tri-axle sleeper for US$205,000, and a 2015 Peterbilt 388 day cab for US$155,000!
