Hello there,

Dedicated server on Nitrado but I guess the problem is caused by game mechanics or my lack of knowledge.

I've had claimed an asteroid in system far from other faction's  territories, then built noble metal mine there and passed the ownership to my faction.
NPC traders comes and go and my faction earn some money, that's how it is supposed to work.

But then I decided to build solar power plant in the very same system,  got ship with station founder feat, cargo space added, crew hired, selling order and request sell marked... and here fun part begins.
NPC hauler came and now stays near the station, she is not pulled in with tractor beams by station crew, she just floats in space. The station has two docks, both available, but adding few more didin't help. First thought - the prices are not good so I tried few different from -50% to 50% - no reaction.
Situation suddenly changed when group of Xsotan ships almost shot her down, with 8% hull she came closer and station pulled her in. Then she warped out and few minutes later another trader warped in and now stays in the very same place as the one before. The area around station is clear of asteroids though.
Faction Noble Metal Mine receives traders every few minutes without any problems. Am I missing something obvious here?  Please advise.

Is the dock they're trying to get to easily accessible? If you have a concave shape around your dock the collision detection might interfere.
