published the fourth-annual report in partnership with ATA’s Technology and Maintenance Council.

“Our most extensive report to date, the fourth-annual edition brims with valuable data and analysis tailored to assist repair shops in optimizing their operations,” said Patrick McKittrick, CEO of Fullbay. “This all-encompassing report serves as a valuable resource for shop owners and managers, enabling them to benchmark their shop’s key metrics against counterparts nationwide. We take pride in providing transparent and unbiased data, supporting our industry partners and peers in their consideration of heavy-duty vehicle maintenance best practices.”

Among the highlights in the report:

  • 45% of respondents reported between 21% to 40% increases of counter sales from 2022 to 2023
  • Labor rates increased 9% across the country in 2023 –  equating to a roughly $10-per-hour increase
  • Over 40% of respondents reported a net profit between 11% and 20%
  • 18% of shops surveyed were pulling in between $1 million to $2 million each year, while 12% reported revenue between $250,001 and $500,000
  • 25% of technicians indicated they worked at only three shops throughout the course of their entire career

“For over 60 years, TMC has aided in developing best practices, technology, and maintenance practices to support the heavy-duty repair industry to specify and maintain their fleets more effectively,” said TMC Executive Director Robert Braswell. “There is no shortage of challenges repair shops face, and this annual report is an excellent tool for individuals of all sectors within the industry to use as a guide when faced with those particular challenges on a daily basis.”

Fullbay’s report data is drawn from individual survey responses and real-world shop data. More than 1,000 individuals from the commercial freight, logistics and repair industries completed the survey, while shops across North America, Australia and New Zealand were sampled for authentic shop data. Those surveyed were a combination of both customers and non-customers of Fullbay, while all sampled data went through data masking.

      link hidden, please login to view According to foreign media reports, the Australian Federal Automobile Industry Chamber of Commerce released automobile sales data in May, the month of new car sales in Australia hit a record high. Sales of hybrid vehicles doubled year on year to reach 15.8 percent of the market, compared with a 0.4 percent increase in electric vehicle sales.
      Almost one in every four new cars in Australia is currently a low-emission vehicle, so hybrid and electric vehicles are taking a greater share of the market. Meanwhile, Australians’ love affair with larger cars is still on the rise, with SUVs still dominating and ute sales continuing to grow.
      This trend has more than doubled the popularity of hybrid cars in 2024, with more than 66,000 units sold, compared to less than 30,000 in the same period in 2023.
      Electric vehicle sales also increased in Australia in May, with more than 8,900 units sold, accounting for 8.1 per cent of all new car sales, with more than 40,000 new electric vehicles on the road in Australia in the first five months of the year.
      Tony Weber, the chamber’s chief executive, said the auto industry is working hard to meet the needs of drivers. “The continued growth in vehicle sales underscores consumer confidence and demonstrates the industry’s ability to meet the diverse needs of Australian consumers in the face of the current economic challenges,” he said.
      However, large vehicles remain a popular choice for drivers regardless of fuel consumption, with SUVs accounting for more than half of vehicles sold and light commercial vehicles accounting for 22 percent of new vehicles. UTE also took three of the top five best-selling cars in May, with the Ford Ranger taking the top spot, followed by the Toyota Hilux and Isuzu’s D-Max light truck in fourth place.

      Toyota was again the top-selling car manufacturer in Australia for the month, followed by Ford, Mazda, Kia and Hyundai. The data also showed a drop in sales for electric car leader Tesla, with the US company selling 3,567 vehicles in Australia in May, compared with 4,476 in the same month last year.
      Its main electric car rival BYD, however, saw sales climb, with the Chinese company selling 1,914 electric vehicles in the month, up 32 percent from a year earlier.
      The growing sales of electric and hybrid vehicles come ahead of the introduction in January of Australia’s first fuel efficiency standard, a legal standard that will set emissions limits on carmakers’ fleets of passenger cars, large and commercial vehicles in an attempt to reduce transport emissions by 2030.
