 Perlemian Trade Route - Wookieepedia, the Star Wars Wiki
The Perlemian Trade Route was a vital trade hyperroute that ran through the galaxy.
One unfortunate consequence of the discovery of routes such as the Perlemian Trade Route and their increased use was the increased obsolescence of large hyperspace hubs throughout the Mid and Outer Rims, and the accompanying impact such loss of commerce would have upon nearby systems.
This may actually be in reference to the Perlemian Trade Corridor, a region of the Perlemian that was created by the subsequent shift of the Bolaaruus Pulsar Cluster.

 Trade Route Values decreasing - A Forum Post by Monthar   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-16)
A trade routes value increases or decreases based on how far away from the route's point of origin the freighter is. So, if a freighter is very near your planet route value goes down, but when its very far away, almost at its destination...
This doesn't affect the trade routes average value, but it does mean that a route will fluctuate as the ship moves back and forth.
If you check your trade route stats each turn, you will see that when the route is first established, ie farthest from its home world, the route will be worth the most.

 History of the Spice Trade
Indeed, the history of commerce and trade is the history of spices and it's no exaggeration to say that America would not have been discovered were it not for the European desire to break the Arab traders' monopoly on spices.
During these ancient times spices were probably traded from local merchant to local merchant and made their way slowly from east to west (with the volume of each spice decreasing and its economic importance increasing with each trade).
Factor into this the ancient over-land trade links between the Arab traders and the lands of India and China and it is hardly surprising that a Spice Route evolved to link Arabia with Baghdad, India, Guangzhou in China and the straits of Molucca (the Spice Islands).

Long-distance trade played a major role in the cultural, religious, and artistic exchanges that took place between the major centers of civilization in Europe and Asia during antiquity.
Some of these trade routes had been in use for centuries, but by the beginning of the first century A.D., merchants, diplomats, and travelers could (in theory) cross the ancient world from Britain and Spain in the west to China and Japan in the east.
The trade routes served principally to transfer raw materials, foodstuffs, and luxury goods from areas with surpluses to others where they were in short supply.

 Nabataea: New Trade Route
Such a trade route would cross the desert to link Petra directly with Jauf, and subsequently to the trade routes that ran east from there to Gerrha or to the ports at the head of the Persian Gulf.
So trade routes were in constant flux as the caravans tried to avoid taxation centers.
The part of the route that ran east from Petra to Ail, and then to Ma'an and finally to Jafr is quite acceptable, and follows a natural course of travel between these centers.

 :: CBI Expeditions - Wartime Lifeline expected to be Key Trade Route on Sino-India Border ::
China's foreign trade with India now makes up only 1 percent of its total import and export value, though bilateral trade volume increased from 200 million US dollars in the 1990s to 13.6 billion dollars in 2004.
A major reason for the small trade volume is lack of a modern land route from China to India, which results in high cost of transport," Chen said.
The current trading route to ship most of India's export to China, by contrast, is as long as 6,000 km, going around the Malacca Strait and the Indian Ocean before reaching China's eastern coast.

 Pakistan’s potential as a trade route -DAWN - Business; January 28, 2002
Pakistan’ s potential as trade route for the transit of sea-borne trade of China could be as potent, if not more in the long term, as for Afghanistan and the CAR.
Odd it may sound, despite the past history of not-so-warm economic relationship of India and Pakistan, transit route for trade of northern parts of India through Pakistan could prove to be economically a viable proposition.
Multi-modalism is presently the pre-dominant pattern in the movements of international trade, the intact movement of goods from the warehouse of the exporter to the sale point of the importer, with liability and responsibility for safe, smooth and speedy movement of cargo between points of origin and destination resting with one organisation.

 Spice Route History, Asian Trade Routes of Indian Ocean, South China Sea
The spice trade of the Dune movie was no doubt inspired by the historical trade in aromatics from ancient times to the present.
The aromatic trail known as the “Cinnamon Route” began somewhere in the Malay Archipelago, romantically known as the “East Indies,” and crossed the Indian Ocean to the southeastern coast of Africa.
An important factor in ascertaining the old spice routes from Southeast Asia is the trail of cloves from Maluku and the southern Philippines north to South China and Indochina and then south again along the coast to the Strait of Malacca.

 Hands-Free Trade
Instead, when they open a new trade route, the system calculates a starting set of MSP for the route, based on the nation's NMV, the size (Total Trade Value) of the route, and the free capacity at the port basing the route.
The trade partners on a given route are also now noted as to whether they can provide MSP for the route (a "Yes" or a "No" in the proper column of the trade route display).
Open trade routes for which you can assign MSP, which are based at a port with free MSP basing capacity, and which are under-capacity for the whole route (a non-negative "FreeCap" number) will automatically accrue new MSP to "fill up" the route at the rate of:
