Summary

What do you get when you combine 120,000 retail sites, 3 distinct supply chains, a powerful group of brand manufacturers, and a complex web of distributors and jobbers? A perfect opportunity for a trading exchange--at least, that's what Chevron saw when it founded the Chevron Retail Alliance (CRA), the group which has since become the Independent Trading Exchange (ITX) known as RetailersMarketXchange (RMX).
