The Hauler is Zorgon Peterson's low-level entry in the freighter market and has been a big success. A large cargo capacity (for its size), cheap purchase price and low running costs have made these the most popular small cargo ships in human space.

— In-Game Description

The Hauler is a light freighter ship with a large cargo hold for a relatively low price. It is not suited at all for combat; it is slow for its size, poorly armoured and shielded, and features only a single small weapon hardpoint.

The Hauler is the starting point of most traders' careers; it is the first step up from the Sidewinder that is not a combat-oriented ship and not much more expensive than one. Despite having more cargo space than the Sidewinder, the ship is still better suited to the trading of rare commodities rather than general goods.

This craft also finds usefulness in exploration; with its relatively long jump range when geared for exploring (28+ LY), it is an affordable choice for early explorers who have no need for defensive capabilities.

The Hauler's most notable failing, besides not being very survivable, is that it is only slightly less expensive than the Adder, which can carry more cargo than the Hauler while also being capable of defending itself and maintaining more varied capability.

The small weapon hardpoint is located under the nose of the ship.
