De­liv­ery num­bers slide back a touch in June 2017

Af­ter two months of solid growth, the num­ber of new buses de­liv­ered to op­er­a­tors took a small dip last month, ex­clu­sive ABC data re­veals

ABC (Australia) - - DELIVERIES -

De­liv­er­ies de­creased in June 2017 with 91 brand new buses de­liv­ered through­out Aus­tralia. This comes very close to May 2017, dur­ing which 93 new bus de­liv­er­ies were re­ported by man­u­fac­tur­ers, rep­re­sent­ing a de­crease of two ve­hi­cles. This June de­liv­ery num­ber stacks up pretty well com­pared to the ex­act same 91 new buses de­liv­ered in June last year.

Volvo had a slower month, its de­liv­er­ies de­creas­ing from 37 in May to 28 in June, fol­lowed by Sca­nia’s 23, which was up on last month’s 21. BCI had a strong month, re­port­ing nine de­liv­er­ies for the month of June – up from six in May. Most other man­u­fac­tur­ers de­liv­ered less than seven ve­hi­cles re­spec­tively, with Optare back in the game with seven de­liv­er­ies re­ported.

The body builders posted slightly weaker re­sults over­all, with Vol­gren lead­ing the way on 22, though that gure was down a fair way on the 27 re­ported in May. Cus­tom Bus had a strong show­ing with 12, up slightly from 11 the month be­fore. The ma­jor­ity of other builders de­liv­ered less than nine ve­hi­cles re­spec­tively.

For air-con­di­tion­ing sup­pli­ers, Thermo King units were in­cluded in the de­liv­ery of 48 buses na­tion­wide, a slight de­crease on 49 just a month ear­lier. Spheros had a strong month in June, in­volved in the de­liv­ery of 15 units. Su­trak also had a good month with seven, a ma­jor im­prove­ment on none in May.

New South Wales led the states with 35 per cent, fol­lowed by Vic­to­ria (22 per cent), Queens­land (19 per cent), West­ern Aus­tralia (14 per cent), South Aus­tralia (8 per cent) and Noth­ern Ter­ri­tory and Tas­ma­nia (1 per cent each).
