Published 25th October 2010 by

A guide to the new industrial ships in Eve Online, listing their cargo hold capacities and speciality capacity for both alpha and omega clones. This list also includes the surprising cargo capacity of non-industrial ships by race, useful for low-sec hauling or transporting high-value items in battleships.

Many people in EVE Online rely on manufacturing, hauling and trade to earn income. For this reason, it is important to maximise cargo hold capacity in order to move as much as possible as quickly as possible. This table shows the base capacity for each ship, and the maximum capacity with the relevant skills maxed out and all cargo hold optimisation rigs and modules fitted. Knowing what ships have the maximum cargo capacity is also handy if you are moving the home station, in order to move your assets more efficiently.

Cargo hold capacity can be maximised through the training of skills, racial Industrial skill gives a 5% bonus per level to capacity. This can further extend through the use of Expanded Cargohold II modules each giving a 27.5% bonus (whilst sacrificing structure and velocity). Even further capacity can be obtained through jury rigging with Cargohold Optimisation rigs, however, I do not have anywhere near enough ISK to fit all these ships with cargo rigs.

L1 = Base capacity, minimal skills no fittings

L5 = All skills level 5

M = All skills level 5 and fitted for maximum capacity (excluding rigs)

These values are correct as of the Citadel expansion.

Highest Capacity Haulers

Bestower Cargo Hold Capacity - 25,775 m3 - Amarr Industrial V, 6x Expanded Cargohold II

Miasmos Ore Hold Capacity - 63,000 m3 - Gallente Industrial V

Epithal Planetary Commodities Capacity - 67,500 m3 - Gallente Industrial V

Kryos Mineral Hold Capacity - 64,500 m3 - Gallente Industrial V

Hoarder Ammo Hold Capacity - 61,500 m3 - Minmatar Industrial V

Surprising Capacities of non-Industrials

Need a little more fire power or more capacity for fittings? Try some of these different ships which make alternative haulers. Although not as high capacity as specialist industrial hulls, they make up for it either by the substantial addition of HP or the ability to add turrets or launchers for defence.

      Good Day.
      also dont forget that you can load cargo optimizations in the rigs slots, and dont forget the praxis battleship, its got a standard cargo m3 of 1200, with 7 X cargo expanders2 and 2 X cargo optimizations and 1 x lv 1 can bring it to 10.884m3

    Hi Tim, don't forget the Gnosis, with 5 Cargohold II, it's a surprising Cargo
