LASH

abbr.

Lighter Aboard Ship, a type of cargo-hauling scheme. A lighter is a nonstarship (a shuttle or ship's boat, usually of fairly large size) used to transport cargo to and from an unstreamlined starship and a world's surface.

Some starships carry the laden lighters between worlds, allowing them to rapidly discharge and take on loads.
