Speedy Delivery

Information based on version Current game version is

This mission, which is only available to Freetraders, exists in almost every port's shop. It requires you to buy/create locally obtainable goods, and then have them inspected before transporting them to a destination on the accompanying mission, Speedy Delivery to [Destination]. They can only be done once. They offer a large amount of experience and can be worth it if the destination port is convenient and/or the goods can be obtained for around the same cost as your compensation.

When you finish all deliveries for a nation, you will be able to claim two additional rewards via two short missions that take you to that nation's capital:

  • The first reward is a consumable item which gives you +500 reputation with all of that nation's major factions (e.g. in Spain you would get +500 reputation with the Spanish Navy, the Spanish Trade Union, and the House of Trade).
  • The second reward is a special sail pattern. (4 Total decals).

When you finish all deliveries for all nations, you will get two more special rewards.

More details can be found in the guide Local Trader / Red Tape Missions Explained.
