Chevron collaborated on this project with Computer Sciences Corp. during the initial strategy formulation, market research and creation of SVOC, which is scheduled to be launched during the third quarter. The site will allow transactions such as placing orders for diesel fuel and bidding to fill these orders - leveraging current business practices with the convenience and efficiency of the Internet.
