unless you're usign a level 1/2 command center, I would recommend getting a spaceport asap.
Spaceports can hold 10k m3 worth of stuff, so are good to use as buffer from extractors to the processors, and also good for holding your processed materials before export. In addition, exporting from the spaceport means you can send up far larger amounts than with the manual launch. But there's more! Exporting your goods means they'll go to the customs office in orbit, allowing you to store an additional 25k m3 there so hauling can be done in larger amounts.
Finally, a spaceport also allows you to import stuff you put in the orbital customs office down to the planet, this means you will be able to take processed goods(ie. P1s) to another planet and combine them there with another P1 to make P2s and upwards.
for instance:
Planet 1, Lava
extracts heavy metals, processes to Toxic metals.
Planet 2, Barren
Extracts noble metals, processes to Precious metals.
Planet 3, any(small radius planets are good here, but that's a given)
imports Toxic and Precious metals, processes them to Enriched Uranium.

Spaceports charge less for exporting than a Command Center, plus spaceports can import too.
