Do you make alloy and/or plastics? It seems to work fine to me.

It's one of the various launch bugs. Either wait for them to fix it or I suggest you get a refund because there are a host of other problems that currently plague the game.

Did you mix up import and export? You export to "ship out."

I think you need another region thats willing to buy. If no other players have developed major infrastructure like you you're most likely screwed.

Every map needs at least one ai controlled city to work with you till others join in. Another reason multiplayer is a bust.

You might not have enough money to afford the shipment yet. Once you do it should automatically buy it for you.

Actually, you do not. I I am in a private region with only one city so far. I export a great deal of alloy, plastic, metal, and coal from various sources. From what I understand they are sold on the global market. As to the specific factors that go into determining the global market price, I haven't the slightest idea.
