I'd like to promote Kilotov's suggestion, as it occured to me frustrating to send traders around Elgea without seeing many blooming hubs.
Therefor I can only support the idea of actively shaping the market as we want it.
At the moment I personally run a project, to envive the "Zhuhai trade hub" as a local hub. It got lots of nice feedbacks from all over the allies and seems promising ...

To be read here:

http://forum.illyriad.co.uk/zhuhai-faction-hub-a-project-to-shape-the-market_topic4237.html

As I considered the Pro's of a local eastern trade hub there extensively, I won't do it here again.
Hope lots of you join this project. See your traders and goods soon ....

StA and H? mostly, but it's turned into a more general Southern trade hub now. Illy geographics work in wonderful ways.

were you expecting another "centrum" ?   considering the first trader is "wine-free", it might take a while for the mass to expand to other hubs...

For the north-east (Laoshin, Tamarin, Qarosslan, even Ursor): How about Qi Quien? It has neutral faction standing for all races, and is probably the only faction hub in the north-east that isn't Orc or lizard people. 

(Was also considering the Barracks...but the Barracks is on an island. For those people without access to the rivers/sea, that might pose some problems with access when/if pathfinding ever comes out.)

As I wrote in another thread, the factional standing is default at the moment, as it gets renewed. Therefor it isn't a parameter yet for a good or a bad hub. In the moment Faction standing gives marginal difference, so you actually have a tax rate of 3,43 % at Centrum and 4% in Zhuhai. In future Faction standing will get updated and hubs will get influencable by playerinteraction. At least this is, what was a goal once.
However, a parameter, that should not be overlooked is the position on the map. And that is, where Zhuhai scores against Qi Quien.

So let's try to get trade running at Zhuhai hub and to make it a blooming eastern Elgea market.
We started this market shaping project 3 days ago, and already have a wide spread variety of goods and a growing daily turnover.
Projects like this only work, if people are willing to take chances to make a few lesser margin as at Centrum yet, but with a rising presence of traders, orders and arising competition market occurence  outer Centrum trading will get more attractive.
Some allies are willing to discuss (or already doing) the support of this hub, so give allycrossing cooperation and active market shaping at Zhuhai a try ...

I still like Qi Quien better than Zhuhai, sorry.

Urukonium in Kal Tirikan is another active hub.

I have traders at Nessim and Hohnsval, too.  They're only mildly active.

Port Tal has been mentioned, I can corroborate it has decent activity.

My roaming trader from Cake Harbour is fun, I got two barrels of wine in Kajadum, spent millions in Lantellyn, and picked up a few black panther furs in Jarru.   Admittedly many hubs were still disappointing.

Currently Shelton 428 -214 (in Lucerna on the border of Perigor) is starting to pick up a bit of trade. Not a big center but practical to those nearby. Come and visit :)

edited to correct a mistake in the state where its situated.
