I have seen a couple of posts talking about use of industrial ships and maximising their hull/cargo holding ability.

But I think I got confused in my newbness about something.

It is said to use cargo expanders AND giant secured containers to get the most "bang for my buck". Do these occupy the same space on the fitting menu?

I think the giant secured containers go in the cargo hold, and I open each one of those when I load something in my cargo hold, or do I throw it in the cargo hold and it is just used? I might be over thinkning it.

Help a poor budding miner/hauler get off his feet.

Thanks

Secure containers go in the cargo. You just load them individually.

Cargo expanders go in your low slots, and increase your capacity by a set %. So if you have 1000 base and fit one basic cargo expander at 15%, you now can carry 1150 cubic meters.

Containers you don't actually fit. They're objects you put in your cargo hold, like extra ammo. They're a little funny: they hold more space than they take up. The giant one, for example, occupies 3000 cubic meters of space, but holds 3900. So if you have a ship that can hold 6000 cubic meters, what you can do is instead carry two giant containers, and put the stuff you want to ship in those. Giving you an effective 7800 cubic meters.

Works best when shipping things like minerals/trade goods, take take tiny fractions of space. Won't help you at all if you wanted to carry a packaged ship that took 7000 cubic meters. (since you can't split it into the two 3900 holds you now have.) But that very rarely is necessary.

Oh and be carefull with containers, you can't put in "living" things like livestock, slaves (whatever the difference is :P ), nor frozen foods, milk and so on.

Or enriched uranium.

Being that one usually loads POS fuel in an indy with secure cans, this can get extremely annoying: lets say you're hauling 2500m3 of enriched uranium, and you only have 1000m3 available outside your cans: you have to toss a can to haul the uranium.
