De­liv­er­ies in­creased in Oc­to­ber 2017 with 106 brand-new buses de­liv­ered through­out Aus­tralia. This is a huge im­porve­ment in com­par­i­son to Septem­ber, dur­ing which just 53 new bus de­liv­er­ies were re­ported by man­u­fac­tur­ers, rep­re­sent­ing an in­crease of 53. The Oc­to­ber de­liv­ery num­ber stacks up well when com­pared to the 97 new buses de­liv­ered at the same time last year.

Volvo had a strong month, its de­liv­er­ies in­creas­ing from 18 in Septem­ber to 35 in Oc­to­ber. Sca­nia fol­lowed with 25, which was well up on last month’s 20. Hino and MAN had a strong month, re­port­ing 12 and 10 de­liv­er­ies re­spec­tively. Most other man­u­fac­tur­ers de­liv­ered less than six ve­hi­cles each.

The body builders posted very im­pres­sive re­sults over­all, with Vol­gren lead­ing the pack on 31, that gure be­ing well up on the 21 re­ported in Septem­ber. Cus­tom Bus had su­per strong re­sults with 17; Bustech also with 13. The ma­jor­ity of other builders de­liv­ered less than eight ve­hi­cles re­spec­tively.

For air-con­di­tion­ing sup­pli­ers, Thermo King led the pack with 44 de­liv­er­ies na­tion­wide, a huge in­crease on 28 the month ear­lier, and still lead­ing the mar­ket by a con­sid­er­able mar­gin. His­pa­cold was in­volved in the de­liv­ery of seven units, while Coachair and Higer Air posted six each.

New South Wales led the states on 39 per cent, fol­lowed by Vic­to­ria (27 per cent), Queens­land (15 per cent), West­ern Aus­tralia (15 per cent), and South Aus­tralia (4 per cent).
