Did you check if a trade ship is counted as one ship in the pool (which it should be).
If so, you can effectively double the income from the pool when using trade ships - that would be a mayor advantage for the Phidi
Adding armor and warplane emph to them also makes sense when using ships from the trade pool to ferry troops in time of battle
Afterwards they can be assigned back to the pool to generate money
