De­liv­er­ies de­creased in Novem­ber with 91 brand-new buses de­liv­ered through­out Aus­tralia

De­liv­er­ies de­creased in Novem­ber with 91 brand-new buses de­liv­ered through­out Aus­tralia. This pales in com­par­i­son to Ocr­to­ber, dur­ing which 106 new bus de­liv­er­ies were re­ported by man­u­fac­tur­ers, rep­re­sent­ing a de­crease of 15 ve­hi­cles.

Volvo led the way even though its de­liv­er­ies de­creased from 35 in Oc­to­ber to 24 in Novem­ber. Sca­nia fol­lowed with 20, keep­ing on par with last month’s tally. Bustech and Yu­tong had a strong month, re­port­ing 10 and nine de­liv­er­ies re­spec­tively, with Hino and BCI fol­low­ing on seven and six, while other man­u­fac­tur­ers de­liv­ered less than six ve­hi­cles each.

In terms of body builders, Vol­gren led the pack on 30, that num­ber con­sis­tent with the 31 de­liv­ered in Oc­to­ber. Bustech was next on 12, then Yu­tong on nine and BCI on seven. The other builders de­liv­ered less than six ve­hi­cles re­spec­tively, with Cus­tom Bus in par­tic­u­lar drop­ping from 17 to five month-on-month.

For air-con­di­tion­ing sup­pli­ers, Thermo King con­tin­ued its dom­i­nance with 49 de­liv­er­ies na­tion­wide, an in­crease on 44 the month ear­lier. Spheros was in­volved in the de­liv­ery of 13 units, while Yu­tong and and Coachair posted nine and seven re­spec­tively, and the rest less than six.

In a change from the usual hi­er­ar­chy, Western Aus­tralia led the states on 26 per cent, closely fol­lowed by New South Wales (25 per cent), Queens­land (21 per cent) and Vic­to­ria (20 per cent).
