When you supply products from trading, alchemy, and cooking to the imperial delivery, you can sell at a much higher price and make big profit. In Black Desert, there are ‘Imperial delivery’ to pass trade items and ‘Imperial craft delivery’ to pass alchemy and cooking products.

There is a fixed quantity of each item that each NPCs can purchase from imperial delivery. These items are also limited to each players family name so that a few players cannot dominate the market.

Market Price of the Trade item is Fixed at 250%
Imperial delivery is a trading event from all around the world that NPCs purchase certain trade items at 250% of market price. These NPCs are located individually in Velia, Heidel, Calpheon, Altinova, Valencia, and Port Ratt.
Radolf Hansen is an Imperial delivery NPC located in Heidel. There is a notation of <Imperial Delivery> so that you can find easily.
For more information about the imperial delivery simply hit shortcut ‘ESC’ - You can find the trade information from the ‘Trade’ menu. It is possible to check what product is sold in 250% of the market price through the imperial delivery NPC in each area with this trade information. You can get the explanation and origin of the trade item by putting your mouse over the icon.
This list of information and the quantity that is available to be delivered is reset every 4 hours. Each trade item has a certain amount that you can deliver. Therefore, it is important to deliver trade items faster than other adventurers.
There is a fixed amount per each trade item that can be supplied. If the remaining quantity is zero, the NPC will no longer trade the imperial delivery products to buy.
Menu (ESC) - You can view the status of an imperial delivery when you click the trade information. When you click the navigation icon of each region, you will be guided to the area of imperial delivery NPC.
Pay close attention to the original price, area, distance between original and purchased locations of the trade item to trade imperial delivery items more efficiently.
If the distance is short, it will take short time to move trade item. As long as you need to compete with other adventurers, it is important to trade quickly and effectively.
A distance bonus will be applied to the product that is from a far region, so you can sell at a higher price regardless of 250% of the market price.
Searching for the supply of trade item you desired is also important. Even though there are purchase quantities of supplies remaining, trading is impossible when all the supplies of the trade item are depleted. In order to prevent the situation that you move with a wagon and you are faced with running out of supplies, you should recognize the state of trade supplies that you are supposed to move. You can also prepare ‘Trade Pass’ through mileage in advance.
You can secure additional supplies by using trade pass you can get from mileage when there is no more supply of trade item left that you want.
Fixed price of 250% means a higher sale price of a trade item, the more profit you will get. When you consider the elapsed time from the place you buy to the imperial delivery NPC, the most expensive trade item, the greater profit per hour.
In the Port Ratt and Valencia, over 100,000 high-priced trade items are sold. If such an expensive trade item is designated as an imperial delivery, it is not a bad idea to endure long travel times and pursue big profits.
190,000 silver coins are required to purchase ‘Millennial Wild Ginseng’ from Port Ratt Trader. You need to navigate a long time across the oceans, but if you sell it as an imperial delivery, you can make a lot of silver.

The items sold by NPC of imperial craft delivery are divided according to ‘medicine’ produced by alchemy and ‘food’ produced by cooking. These items can be exchanged through ‘Imperial Alchemy’ or ‘Imperial Cuisine’ as a trade item.
