I would like to suggest a new ship "Ship Freighter" with a few million m3 ship hangar.
To ease the logistical hell Rigs have put on moving many ships from 1 place to another.

Ship Freighter:
6 Million m3 Ship maintanace Hangar. And No other types of hangars.

Jump Ship Freighter : (yes we need a jumped version aswell, not as important)
2 Million m3 Ship maintanace Hangar. And No other types of hangars except a Fuel Hangar.

CCP give us ships that are specially good at moving ships assembled w.Rigs. Cool

OMG I'm SICK of people saying orca is the answer to all our ship and cargo hauling needs short of a freighter. An ORCA is not, nor was it designed to be, a mini-freighter or ship hauler. It may fit in a pinch, but a DEDICATED, SPECIALIZED ship is required. You don't need to train dedicated mining skills to fly a hauler like an iteron, and you shouldn't have to spend over a month of time to dedicated MINING skills to fly a mini-freighter or ship freighter!

There should be 2 new ships: a mini-freighter that can haul around 200k of cargo, is about half the price of and more agile than a regular freighter. We also need, as said, a freighter that can haul rigged ships with only a dedicated ship maintenance bay. Whethere or not there are jump versions, I don't care too much, though it would be nice.

Well your options are

a) Whine in here and maybe they'll squeeze your idea into a release months/years/never in the future. And then you might need to train a couple of weeks for the skills to fly it, and pay an inflated 'early adopter' price.
b) Train a couple of weeks for the skills to fly an orca, then use it for the months/years before the 'mini freighter' idea gets implemented.

I don't know about you, but (b) seems like the logical choice to me.

I don't see why we shouldn't be able to put an assembled/fitted/rigged ship into any industrial that has enough cargo space anyway.

If that can't be changed, a ship ferry would be an excellent addition to the game.

Actually, you can. I've been moving around assembled and rigged ships (up to, and including, cruisers and t2 cruisers) in my freighter. Too bad there's 120k m limitation on ship volume (it takes assembled volume though). Remove the limitation - and voila - you don't need a dedicated ship moving ship other than regular (jump)freighter... At least for a while.
