A broker will buy and sell commodities from its inventory and connected building's inventories to spacecraft. A spacecraft may trade cargo with any broker if the ship is physically present on a connected building's site. When connected to an airport terminal, spacecraft may trade cargo with the broker if they are near a friendly space station in the solar system. A space station acts as a trade hub for all friendly brokers connected to an airport terminal in the solar system.
See the Trade page for more information.
A broker is able to send shipments to cities in other solar systems. A maximum number of shipments can be scheduled at and enroute from a broker at any one time, this is determined by the number of offices in the building design.
When at a broker, it is possible to setup and manage shipments using the City (
F10) window's Broker tab.
