I'm making sure that the ends of my trade port are in the water and that it is full to capacity with the correct goods, but I'm finding that the ships aren't taking them.

The map I'm on is Syracusae. In the Advisors menu, I have the export Resources set to an appropriate level. I've set the goods as 'selling' in the Order menu of the port itself. In the menu which comes up when you click on the city you are trading with on the Empire map, for each the trade status is Open, and trade is not suspended.

Latium wants both Wool and Grain. I have 24 of each in my 48 capacity port. I've let the game run for over a year in game time with a full port and nothing is being taken upon the ships.

Furniture arrives fine from Narbonensis, pottery arrives fine from Apulia, but Apulia isn't taking any of the clothes which share the port with the pottery. (12 pots to 36 clothes)

So imports are happening, exports aren't.

Have I missed doing something? What can I do to resolve this issue?

Hmmmmmm.
Did you set your export limits and if you did what level did you set them to?
I'm setting my export limits above the yearly amount required. i.e. 105 on wool and grain

That's the problem.
Those limits are what you want to keep for yourself.
So if you set 105 it means it exports everything above 105. That they will keep 105 for yourself and only anything above that will be exported.
You want to set it low instead and keep only necesary amount.
If you wouldn't need any yourself of that good, you can easily set it to 0.
Got it!

Had a feeling I must be doing something wrong :D

Thank you
Awesome.

Glad I could help. Have fun.
