Trading Post is the most crucial harbour building in the game, it grants the ownership of the island it is built on. It also provides space for storing goods and acts as a warehouse by having several loading ramps which can be used by production buildings to load and unload goods. Trading post also provides the necessary connection to all other buildings on the island via roads - all other buildings must be directly connected via roads to the trading post or indirectly via warehouses connected to the trading post (the only other building that can serve this function of the trading post is the oil harbour).

You can construct a trading post by sailing to a coastline of an island with a ship which has enough construction materials on board. When the ship is close to the coastline a transparent trading post appears on the coast, click on it and confirm construction to place the trading post and claim the ownership of the island.

Each trading post possesses a cannon which helps with defending the harbour of the island, the strength of the cannon is equal to the strength of cannon towers (to be verified).

If there are also other harbour buildings on an island, attacking a trading post and destroying it will not immediately cause the defending player to lose the ownership of the island. The process of island takeover is described here.

Trading post has to be placed on free coastline, and you can build only one trading post per island.

Upgrades

At first you can build only the small version of the trading post which provides 2 loading ramps and 75 tons of storage space. You can upgrade the small trading post in order to gain more loading ramps and more storage capacity. To increase the storage capacity you can also place depots or Docklands depot modules in your harbour, or utilise certain palace policies.

The trading post can be upgraded up to two times in each region except for Old World, where it can be upgraded three times. Each upgrade provides additional loading ramps and storage capacity, up to a maximum of 6 loading ramps and 500 storage capacity in Old World, and 4 loading ramps and 250 storage capacity in other regions. The trading post has no maintenance costs on any level.
