buyers turn off tablets

Tablets now account for a little more than 8 per cent of visits to TradeTrucks.com.au and sister websites BusNews.com.au, Fullyloaded.com.au and OwnerDriver.com.au, new data reveals. In the nine months to September 30, 2020, just 8.13 per cent of visits to the websites were via tablet, down from 11.66 per cent in the comparable period of 2019 and 12.62 per cent in the first three quarters of 2018. Mobile, meanwhile, jumped from 52.52 per cent of visits in the period January 1–September 20, 2018, to 55.01 per cent in the corresponding period of this year. Surprisingly, desktop sessions grew from 34.85 per cent of visits in 2018, to 35.59 per cent in 2019, and 36.85 per cent in 2020 – most likely as a direct result of in-market-buyers being more desk-bound due to COVID-19.

big bangers muscle up

With the industry three-quarters of the way through the calendar year, the only commercial vehicles sales constant seems to be month-on-month (MOM) volatility. Truck Industry Council (TIC) monthly T-Mark figures show September’s sales total at 2,858, up from August’s 2,616 but down on July’s 2,891. Those keen on the historic level will note that this year’s September is desperately close to 2016’s 2,863 but well below 2017’s 3,304. It may be worth keeping in mind that though July is traditionally a quiet month, federal government instant asset write-off incentives are in the sales mix and are held responsible for a spike in all sorts of vehicle sales, including cars and commercial vans, along with used trucks. In trucks of all sizes, market leader Isuzu has been gliding down in the past three months, from…

The efficiency doesn’t just stop with the engine ‘Pure Excellence’, the benchmark for safety, fuel efficiency, driver comfort and exterior styling. Earlier this year, DAF Trucks Australia introduced the all-new Euro 6 model range, which saw a greater focus on safety features. These include adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, advanced emergency braking and a lane departure warning system; which come in addition to the existing safety features, making DAF the optimal choice for safety in its class. Fuel efficiency is the name of the game and the new DAF trucks have multiple systems to help reduce fuel consumption, meaning more money in your pocket. This has been achieved from a complete overhaul in the design of the Euro 6, starting with the all-new styling and aerodynamics, which has resulted in DAF…

scenic detour

Now, contrary to what you may think, Detour Logistics did not get its name from an amusing story of owner Colin Beer getting lost and encountering a wild adventure. I would also love to be able to tell you an amusing tale aligning Colin with the phrase ‘alternative route’ (yeah I childishly sniggered at that one a little too much). Nope, truth be told the ‘Detour’ in Detour Logistics came from the side of the family ski boat. The bonus of the less exciting origin story is it’s a much easier name to fit on the side of a truck, much easier than the original company name Australian Linehaul Shuttle Express. The money saved on sign writing alone; well you can work that out. After all those little quips about the…

show goes on

It is equally a great opportunity for you to connect with your suppliers Amid the madness of 2020, sometimes it is difficult to know if we are heading in the right direction. At times it feels like the pace of things is slowing down to a cautious crawl at the expense of our businesses, our economy and maybe even our sanity. Then, that speck of light in the distance provides us with everything we need to pick up our pace again and start heading forward, with the surety that everything is going to be alright. Naturally, there have been some nerves about whether everything will be good to go by 2021. Well, five months into 2021 actually: the 2021 Brisbane Truck Show will run from May 13 to 16 next year. Then there are…
