If you mean pre-established trade routes where the main merchant character automatically earns profit without being present with the expedition then no, or better not yet.
In the guide you an east step by step process to build Trade Nodes.
In the next updates I will add a way to create trade routes.
Consider that this guide is intended to work on any campaign setting.

Don't suppose later on you could add some bookmarks to make it easier to navigate? 150+ pages is a lot to navigate through scrolling. But looks great otherwise!

For now you have bookmarks that link the Index to each chapther. However and as usual, I have taken note of your feedback. In the next update I will refine the bookmark structure to make it more navigable and will add a resume of printable tables at the end of the pdf.
Also, the next updates will include Artifical Wonders to complete the landscape.
Just to tell the whole story, the next updates must include:
1) TAGS to make the worldbuilding a bit more elegant. Local, Regional and Continental TAGS.
2) A Merchant House Generator
3) Artifical Wonders. I have already identified 23 articial wonders, like Pyramids, Great Lighthouse, Lost Army of Golems (Terracotta Army), and others. All inspired on real world wonders. This section will be expanded to include PDFs that describes these wonders as place that can be explored like a dungeon.
4) A refining of the Wandering Monsters section, to make the hexcrawling aspect a bit more elegant and versatile.
5) An extension of the wandering...See more

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
