Im kinda new over here and was wondering if there is a faster way to do this than traveling back to my home?
If you level up your house to level 6 I think, u get access to collecting area inside of your house. This is quite nice because u can just place ur house close to manufacturing area.
Another option is for u to make ur bank empty and always fill it completely with mats before u go back to the city. Or u can use Super Wings to fly back to collecting area's
In case you haven't yet, I'd recommend marrying an alt (a healer, for instance) so you get a free teleport with a 1hr cooldown. I did this for my prods (married my collector to my manufacturer) and I find it really helpful.
