Lesy SR spokesman Peter Gogola stated that the trial period would last two months, during which 12 employees will be trained as administrators for the electronic auctions. In the first phase, the company will procure hydraulic oils, fencing material, ropes, occupational safety products, and office supplies. After the trial period, the forestry company will choose a supplier of electronic auctions and sign a contract for the following year.
