Science-Fiction Adventure in the Far Future
Cargo is attached externally, either by using special field cables or cargo pods to extend the ship's jump field. The extra cargo will increase the ship's tonnage and thus reduce the ship's jump range.
Ling Standard Products uses this configuration widely. Since most LSP cargos are durable goods, it fits their needs for an adaptable, multi-purpose craft. LSP's jump ships (jump-6 at TL 15) are common on many xboat routes.
