Trade Depot allows the player to store, import and export commodities and accept freight shipments. Before the player can import and export commodities from the Global Market, the appropriate storage lot module must be built. Only 4 storage lots can be constructed for one Trade Depot. Storage lots accept deliveries from local industries, the Global Market and neighboring cities.
- When the player has an excess of resources, they will automatically go to the Trade Depot. If the player lacks a Trade Depot, excess resources will be stored by the buildings that produce them.
- Trade Depot is the integral component of Trading specialization. Players who want to store a large quantity of resources or import and export via freight trains and cargo ships should consider constructing a Trade Port.
- Note Trade Depot and Trade Port have different Storage Lot capacities.
