FESTIVE DELIGHT


Bouncing back over the 100 mark last month, deliveries have increased again in November as the holiday season approaches.

FESTIVE DELIGHT
Deliveries have reached triple figures again, rising slightly from 102 in October to 108 in November

Bus and coach deliveries have reached triple figures again, rising slightly from 102 in October to 108 in November – a better effort than the Australian cricketers, it must be said.

For the second month in a row, Scania came out on top for the chassis manufacturers, recording 36 deliveries. Volvo followed on 31, recovering from October’s trough of 22. BCI and Yutong maintained their double-figure tallies.

Volgren has been the body-building market leader each month this year, and led again with 35 builds in November. Next best this time was Bustech, which had one of its busiest months of the year; as did BCI, recorded in 15 deliveries.

Thermo King has also led the air-conditioning tally each month, and recorded another half-century in November. The remainder of the market was tight, with Spheros, Yutong, MCC, Coachair and Hispacold separated by only four deliveries.

In a change to the recent norm, Victoria was busiest state in November, knocking NSW off its perch, slightly. Nearly every state and territory was represented; a solid nation-round effort.
