Well i got an elephant last night and got apprentice to skilled 1 trading at the moment, all this was done via the elephant sprinting between velia/hiedel, I was wondering if i should just continue this and if so, for how long? Thanks

When it comes to quality of  trading packs available in each region, it is like:
Apprentice: Balenos
Skilled: Serendia
Professional: Calpheon
Artisan: Mediah
Master: Valencia

But you can remain for some extra levels in each area with no problem depending on your route. For example I had a good route at Calpheon and stayed there till Artisan3 without ever  going to Mediah (did trash crates to master2 after that).

I think route is more important though. Quantity > Quality, at least when I did it.

Leveling Trading (if that's what you're trying to do) is all about volume. Velia to Heidel is one of the best routes for this due to the high volume of goods at each trader NPC, their proximity and the face that they're both regional capitals with Imperial delivery NPCs—giving you a little extra cash when the items you're moving go Imperial.

For the elephant, the upside is that it's faster than wagons (especially with saddle, joyride, etc). The downside is that it's only faster if you're actively controlling it—autopathing is quite slow. So stick with it if you don't mind running manually, but switch to a Merchant or Noble wagon if you want to trade semi-afk.
