Happy 7th Annual Road Salt Reverse Auction

An Indiana county has partnered with eBridge to run reverse auctions for their annual road salt purchases for seven consecutive years.  eBridge has continued to find market value for this Indiana county year-after-year and this year was no different.   At this point, you could call us both experts when it comes to road salt.  This year, 6 of the suppliers sourced by eBridge met the Buyer’s minimum requirements and were approved to participate in the bid.  During the 45 minute auction, the 6 competing suppliers placed 187 lowering bids resulting in first place changing hands 68 times.  If awarded to the low bidder, the buyer will save $5.77 per ton over last year’s price.   We are happy to again report that a great partnership and the reverse auction continue to produce savings.
