Taobao's court auction platform is a trove of assets from cities across China, with real estate, industrial equipment and vehicles - in various states of fix - up for bids.
Alibaba said the three jets previously belonged to Jade Cargo International, a freight carrier that filed for bankruptcy in 2013. According to Chinese state media outlet Xinhua, the auction gathered over 800,000 viewers. The court had tried auctioning the jets offline six times since 2015, according to the news agency, but couldn't find any buyers. Left with no choice, the courts chose to put them up for sale online in September. The seller was cited to be the Intermediate People's Court of Shenzhen City, although their third plane that was also up for sale remains.
Taobao's court auction platform was launched in 2012, in order to sell property, industrial equipment and vehicles.
