So apparently the canon J-3 Florian route is:

Fist (B)~~Acrid (A)~~ [correction: Arunisiir (B)]

I suppose the J-2 route is:

Fist (B)

The J-3 route costs ~8970 Cr/dTon (market value 20600)

The J-2 route costs ~10852 Cr/dTon (market value 21200)

I am mystified why J-3 freighters would take such a sub-optimal route.

Fist (B)

which costs 7877 Cr/dTon (market value of 22400; but they can afford to undercut J-2 or J-3 freighters using either of the above routes), and it cuts out the travel times of two jumps. Or even:

Fist (B)

Which is even cheaper at ~7780 Cr/dTon; and an expected market value of 21400 Cr/dTon.

My other proposed route:

Nekrino (B)

Costs just 6008 Cr/dTon (market value of 16200), and (at 4 weeks faster) absolutely flattens all the competition.

Still, it is interesting that the Hierate routes attract five times the traffic of the Florian routes.

A Galoof on the J-3 Hierate run costs ~4136 Cr/dTon; with a market rate of 10 kCr/dton. On the J-2 Hierate route it comes to ~5523 Cr/dTon; with a 'market rate' of 11200 Cr/dTon. Doubling the expected market rate for delivering a dTon cuts demand by 80%.
