Cargo canisters on a moon, part of a point of interest.

Cargo Canisters are used to transport different goods across the galaxy. A filled canister weighs approximately 1 tonne. All Commodities transported in the Cargo Racks of Ships and SRVs do so in canisters.

Various other objects, such as Black Boxes, Occupied Escape Pods, and Unknown Artefacts conform to the canister form factor closely enough to be compatible with standard cargo racks.

You can salvage canisters with a cargo scoop or limpet collectors in space or on a celestial body's surface. Check the GUI text when targeting canisters whether it's "legal salvage" or "illegal salvage".
