Warhulks were said to be made easier to obtain to transport via land, but its not going to be in before launch.
And even if they were, you'd need to actually build a foundry to be able to start leveling the warhulk construction before you can even make any warhulk...so...

Land based transport comes down to man power, and with 8 modules per person tops, it seems to me the time it would take to travel that distance is better served to locally gather these materials.

On the ocean, you could transport 1000 modules, with just a single strongbox (or overweight player who can log off to keep it safe).
The issue there is more howmuch protection you want to have for your cargo, over the difficulty of moving the goods.
But again, loads of holdings are quite a bit away from the shorelines. So either you have an overweight person who gets begone'd all the way over, or you make a dozen trips with a dozen people.

All in all, trade of any kind is going to be about profit margins.
If you want big profit, nobody will buy it from you (even if you deliver it to their doorstep, but obviously you'd get paid more for doing so). If you get no(t enough) profit, why bother doing it to begin with.

That balance is a tricky one, many will get burned when they lose a cargo. Many will be bummed nobody is buying their stuff.
You need to enjoy that back and forth, more than the travelling itself.

If Building Mods become less heavy and/or Taiminig grind to 50 becomes faster, transporting real quantities via Battlehorns becomes an option.

But alas, I kinda doubt we'll get that kind of changes for launch :(

Our clan has done 20man conveys with building modules. But only short distances from an NPC city to our city. But we did get attacked half way even still. Had for a bit of excitement =P
