CRA Careers - Practice Areas - Auctions & Competitive Bidding

Auctions & Competitive Bidding

  • When Fonterra, the world’s leading exporter of dairy products, wanted to offer improved price transparency, forward price information, and enhanced price risk management, they retained CRA to design and manage GlobalDairyTrade, an Internet-based electronic trading platform for cross-border trade in commodity dairy products.

  • When Ocean Spray wanted to create a more transparent marketplace for their customers, CRA developed a web-based trading platform to reduce the cost and increase the efficiency of transactions. This innovative new platform streamlines trading and reinforces Ocean Spray’s status as a leader in its industry.

  • The Auctions & Competitive Bidding practice develops auctions, market designs, and software and trading platforms used to sell or procure assets, resources, property rights, and obligations for businesses, governments, bidders, and other market participants. These sometimes sophisticated mechanisms have been used in commodities, energy, telecommunications, transportation, oil & gas, natural resources, environmental, metals, and other industries.
