Go to the city specialization tab, then the trading one. Buy a trading depot, think its only about 10k or so.

Have you turned on exporting for each of the things you want to ship?

Maybe you have traffic that is clogging up your delivery trucks, so that the goods from your industries can't efficiently get to your commercial shops and trade depots?

Yeah, freight is shipped locally (trucks going to commercial shops) or regionally (train/ferry/boat).

Click on your trade depot, and make sure you build the add-on lots for the particular commodity you want to export. Then click on the tooltip again and you'll see a "manage global" button, where you can toggle on exporting.
