ABC (Australia) - - CONTENTS -

We know you love them and so we have the lat­est bus and coach sup­plier sales data col­lected and recorded for you to sink your teeth into. To know who is who and who’s done what sim­ply check it out!

Bus and coach de­liv­er­ies have re­cov­ered from last month’s dip, in­creas­ing from 90 to 103. That re­sult makes it seven months out of 10 in 2018 that par­tic­i­pat­ing man­u­fac­tur­ers have recorded triple­fig­ure de­liv­er­ies, in what must be con­sid­ered a pos­i­tive for in­dus­try. A big sur­prise for chas­sis mak­ers this month was Sca­nia, with 43 de­liv­er­ies, top­pling fel­low Swede Volvo from the top of the pile, which had an un­char­ac­ter­is­ti­cally quiet month on 22. BCI and Yu­tong had rel­a­tively strong months, both post­ing dou­ble fig­ures. ABC mag­a­zine also wel­comes Chal­lenger Bus and Coach to the de­liv­er­ies sec­tion.

For the body builders, Vol­gren re­tained its spot at the top, noted in 30 de­liv­er­ies, but the names be­low made for in­ter­est­ing read­ing. Gemi­lang had its best num­ber of the year on 15, while BCI and Yu­tong matched their chas­sis tal­lies, and 14 more builders were in­volved in a com­pet­i­tive field.

It was gen­er­ally busi­ness as usual though for the air-con sup­pli­ers as Thermo King reigned supreme, oc­cu­py­ing nearly half the mar­ket. Spheros had a strong month as well on 20, while six more mak­ers also fought it out for a slice of the mar­ket.

New South Wales was again the busiest state in terms of de­mand (36 per cent), with Vic­to­ria busier than in re­cent times on 26 per cent, and Queens­land and Western Aus­tralia shar­ing 15 per cent each.
