We all know the fairly obvious situations. If you have a huge load to carry across high-sec then you would use a freighter such as a Fenrir. If you needed to retrieve goods from a station in low or null sec you would jump into a cloaky hauler such as a Prowler.
But what about all those other situations? More specifically what indy do you use when you're: - picking up goods purchased via region-wide buy orders that are scattered across an entire system or region - you're about to embark on the yellow-brick road to Jita but you had a bad week only have 10 000m3 in goods to haul - you need to get 30 full implant sets across high-sec to Jita, Rens, Dodixie, etc.
Do you change your hauling strategy based on value of goods or volume of goods?
The reason I ask is that I currently use my Fenrir for any haul I make to trade hubs (I can just AFK and read a book/ watch TV). I use my 27 000m3 Mammoth for picking up various items scattered across a region and a cloaky for those pesky low sec runs. As you can imagine these runs can take a ton of time so I would like to optimize my hauling by using a range of ships that match the load volume and value.
Can anyone share as to what ships they used in these different situations in order to increase efficiency through lowering the amount time spent in transit?
