Making 30k on a 100ton cargo feels like a waste of time.
You should be making at the very minimum $900c per ton. Ideally more. I like to do bidirectional routes, so one path pays less than the other, but they still should be both above that mark.
I don't know if you have enough money atm, but I'm shipping palladium and imp. slaves....which are the two most expensive commodities, so I understand if you can't trade them.
I think resonating separators are a good middle ground. They cost $5k (instead of $10k or $12k) and you can make pretty much the same profit (ie that $0.9 to $1.2k per ton)
Rare trading is amazing in the Asp. God I wish I could throw $5 million at you for the 'A' frameshift. Either way, you can rack up some serious money by submitting to AI fools interdicting you.
