Australian consumers are making more frequent trips to supermarkets rather than doing a major grocery buy each week. Supermarket operators have responded to the trend by deploying smaller shopping trolleys and reducing the cycle for upgrading their fleet of trolleys to every 3-4 years. This in turn has benefited companies that supply shopping trolleys, such as QHDC Australia. The company’s Chinese subsidiary manufactures trolleys for retailers in Australia, the US and several Asian countries.
