Trenton Outpost is home to Universal Shipping, one of the Big Three family of Liberty companies that also includes Ageira Technologies and Deep Space Engineering. Universal Shipping made its fortune by gambling on shipping silver from California to Colorado for use in terraforming Los Angeles, long before Jump Gates and Trade Lanes reduced the risk of transporting goods over such long distances. Universal then cemented its reputation as the premiere Liberty shipping company in 181 A.S. by signing a contract to handle all shipping between Ageira Technologies facilities and Deep Space Engineering construction sites.

"A Universal is the company that ships Ageira's Trade Lane components to the Deep Space Engineering sites that will eventually become Jump Gates and Trade Lanes. They are fortunate to be honored with our very lucrative, exclusive contracts."
"Our finely crafted Detroit personal weaponry is sent throughout Sirius space from here -- that is, with the exception of Rheinland, which produces its own Side Arms. However, Detroit firepower is generally recognized as the best in personal protection."
"Republican Shipping is the premier Rheinland shipping firm. If it weren't for the massive debts that Rheinland accumulated during the 80-Years War, Republican would still be the only shippers in Rheinland space."
"The run from California to this base isn't a bad one as runs go. Sometimes our Food sipments get attacked by Rogues, but overall, we're pretty well protected. Once our ships enter the system, we head past West Point. Plenty of patrols and the LPI keep this area relatively safe since it's close to Manhattan."
"This is but one base that our Paste-delivery fleet visits in our quest to keep the people of Sirius fed. Though we work towards a good cause, we still have our enemies."
"Because Universal handles such sensitive technology, we have become known as the premier shipper of rarified and valuable items. That means that our transports will very rarely stray from the Trade Lanes, and travel through Border Worlds and dangerous areas hardly ever happens."
"The Oxygen and Water consumed at this base is shipped in by us from Manhattan. These basic components must be shipped to almost every base in every system in all of Sirius space. Maybe one day Universal will ship to them all."
"The Side Arms at this base are shipped by Universal to New London and New Tokyo. Both runs are very dangerous; anytime you travel through the Independent Worlds you have to be ready for a fight. That goes double for Side Arm shipments."
"The Superconductors brought here are shipped by Universal to the Southampton Shipyard in New London, where they will be used to drive the engines of the Bretonian Navy. We here at Universal are proud to take part in such an honor."
"The Superconductors here are shipped by Universal to the Southampton Shipyard in New London. The trip is not an easy one, and my ship is almost always beat up when I come limping into Southampton. They patch me up and send me on back to do it all over again. I swear I lose a hair each time worrying about whether I'm gonna make it or not."
"The Trade Lane components at this base are shipped by us to Waterloo in New London. We are part of the life blood of shipping that is Jump Gate technology, and all of Sirius benefits from our shipping convoys."
"This base serves as the headquarters for Universal Shipping, the primary shipping and transport company in Liberty. We ship to far-flung destinations throughout all of Sirius. If you want it shipped, you'd better go with Universal!"
"We ship Food from here to Ageira's weapons manufacturing center in Detroit. Synth Foods delievers its own Pastes to Liberty planets; we handle more of the specific delieveries to military, police, and commercial bases."
