Ive forgotten how caravanserai worked but I thought they didn't reduce micromanagement and created the need for more unit infrastructure to work (sounds like reality though)At the time, I suggested making caravanserai work like warehouses in Empire, because I knew that what was implemented was not going to help reduce MM at all (and thus IMNSHO worthless.)

Essentially you set up, once per hex, production and distribution thresholds, and hexes automatically attempt to import and export goods to maintain the specified thresholds. Once it's been set up, you don't worry about it again barring having your routes interrupted by enemies. It wipes out a lot of MM.
