This is pretty easy to unlock once you have a ship with a decent sized hold and jump range.

Start at Zaonce and then buy the commodities shown in yellow - these are rare commodities. From Zaonce, jump to Lave (Lave Station), Leesti (George Lucas), Diso (Shifnalport) and Orrere (Sharon Lee Free Market) and buy up the rares from each. By the time I reached Orrere and filled up there, I had around 36 tonnes of cargo.

Jump from Orrere to Witchhaul (Hornby Transit) - about 190 light years. Sell all your rares there (for me, it generated a little over 500,000 credits) and then buy what's on offer.

From Witchhaul, visit Fujin (Futen Station), 39 Tauri (Porta), Zeessze (Nicollier Hangar) and George Pantazis (Zamka Platform) and buy up all of their rares before jumping back to Zaonce and selling them all there.

(I take no credit for the route - I got it from Google - search for "Elite Dangerous rare trading routes" and the first image is a pictorial representation of the above)

In an Asp with two additional 8 unit cargo holds (i.e. 48 in total) the achievement popped on returning to Zaonce and midway through selling the cargo. It should be possible to do it on one circuit of the above ring with the Asp's standard hold and one 8 unit extension.

It took around 90 minutes, but it could be done in less - I stopped to scan unexplored planets)
