Airports that may need to pick up some runway cleaning equipment may want to check out a live online auction December 19th, as Tiger Group's Remarketing Services division is auctioning a wide array of specialized trucks, trailers and other equipment used to support airport runway-cleaning operations, but with applications for other businesses and municipalities. Conducted by order of the secured lender, the online sale features the former assets of Tustin, CA-based Runway Services International.
