De­liv­er­ies in­creased in Au­gust 2017 with 110 brand­new buses de­liv­ered through­out Aus­tralia. This eas­ily beats July, dur­ing which 100 new bus de­liv­er­ies were re­ported by man­u­fac­tur­ers, rep­re­sent­ing an in­crease of 10 ve­hi­cles. The Au­gust de­liv­ery num­ber stacks up very well com­pared to the 102 new buses de­liv­ered at the same time last year.

Volvo had a strong month, its de­liv­er­ies in­creas­ing from 36 in July to 40 in Au­gust. Sca­nia fol­lowed with 36, which was slightly down on last month’s 41. Iveco also had a strong month, re­port­ing nine de­liv­er­ies. Most other man­u­fac­tur­ers de­liv­ered less than six ve­hi­cles re­spec­tively, with BCI per­form­ing well with six de­liv­er­ies re­ported.

The body builders posted promis­ing re­sults over­all, with Vol­gren lead­ing the pack on 47, that gure be­ing well up on the 35 re­ported in July. Cus­tom Bus had a very strong show­ing with 21, well up from eight the month be­fore. The ma­jor­ity of other builders de­liv­ered less than eight ve­hi­cles re­spec­tively.

For air-con­di­tion­ing sup­pli­ers, Thermo King im­pressed with 68 de­liv­er­ies na­tion­wide, a big in­crease on the 51 a month ear­lier, and lead­ing the mar­ket by a con­sid­er­able mar­gin. Spheros had a strong show­ing and was in­volved in the de­liv­ery of 11 units. His­pa­cold also had a good month with nine, just a slight drop on the 10 recorded in July.

New South Wales led the states on 36 per cent, fol­lowed by Vic­to­ria (20 per cent), Queens­land (18 per cent), Western Aus­tralia (12 per cent), ACT and SA (both with 6 per cent) and NT on 2 per cent.
