The standardized Cargo Containers are the heart of interstellar trade. Containers come in many different types, each with a designation to distinguish the different types and uses. Designation for each container is (size)(type)/(TL).

Containers are 3 meters high by 3 meters wide and include all doors and fittings for cargo handling equipment. There are three sizes of containers, coded as 4A (12 meters long, 8 tons), 4C (6 meters long, 4 tons) or 4D (3 meters long, 2 tons). Containers are constructed at TL–5 to TL–15, with little variation in weight or cost.
