Department of Logistics
Department of Logistics

The Department of Logistics, also called the Logistics Corps, is the logistical arm of the Trade Federation. This department organizes the transport of people, ships, and resources of the Trade Federation. Over the years the Department of Logistics has seen untold growth employing over half of all the Trade Federation's personnel making it the biggest department of the Federation.

With the massive moving power of the Lucrehulk 3210 Battleship, the Department of Logistics can move anything, living or not, to any destination with incredible speed. Even the Viceroy has been quoted at diplomatic events saying how dominating his Logistics Corps is. Some say he has even been known to use charts and graphs to prove it...

Ships used by the Department of Logistics


Lucrehulk 3210 Battleship

At over three kilometers in diameter, these enormous vessels were originally designed and built for many years by the Trade Federation to haul massive amounts of cargo from point A to point B. With the threat of war came the need for innovation and more specifically, powerful military platforms. The Lucrehulk's enormous carrying capacity, abundant power levels, and even the ability to land caught the eye of top Trade Federation Military minds. It did not take long for a few Lucrehulks to be outfitted with massive shield generators, hundreds of weapons, and all the support equipment necessary to house numerous battalions of droids, tanks, and fighters. With the unprecedented success of the early prototypes, the Lucrehulk 3210 Battleship was rushed into production and is the icon of Trade Federation Military might in the Galaxy. Despite the ship's up-armored status, the Department of Logistics still finds the Lucrehulk to be the best heavy hauler in the fleet.


Tabder-class Heavy Hauler

It is rumored that when the Tabder was in development, the CEO of its manufacturer would visit the complex housing the ship's design team every day and say "It's too small, itís just too small," and every day, they would increase the ships proportions. They later learned, only after the ship went into production, he was talking about the building, and not the ship design. In the end, what they ended up with was a cargo ship that dwarfed the mighty Star Destroyers of the Empire. The Tabder has a downright cavernous cargo hold, one that could arguably carry enough raw materials to build the infrastructure of an entire country. If the ship were equipped with a large enough opening, it could conceal in itself the flagship of the Black Sun fleet, the Darkstar Battleship, or four of the Hapes' Nova Battle Cruisers. However, the ship is an easy target for raiders and pirates. It is slow, carries no weapons of its own and has no docking bay for support vessels. Another rumor exists that the manufacturer has plans for a modification package that would allow it the luxury of a small, six-ship docking system. Whether this innovation ever comes to fruition or not, is anyone's guess.


Modular Star Hauler

The Modular Star Hauler is the legacy of the Modular Taskforce-Cruiser Project, a project initially started to create an all-purpose support ship for the navies of the galaxy. Its design was intended to allow a variety of mission-specific modules to be fitted to the hull including; hospital, survey, cargo, observation and inquisition modules. The project was ultimately too complex and clients large enough to afford the vessels backed out. With a loss of funding, the team responsible for the project decided to scrap the plans. However before disposing of the designs completely, they were put on the open market for purchase. The blueprints and all accompanying research for the vessel were bought up by a private production company, who simplified the overall design and fitted the large ship solely with cargo modules and added larger engines to allow it to keep pace with its escorts. The newly redesigned Star Hauler was marketed as a super freighter, and to make it even more popular and 'task-force-friendly', it was equipped with extensive sensor arrays to help it detect any impending threat to its valuable cargo.


C-9979 Landing Ship

The C-9979 Landing Ship was originally built for delivering battledroids from a planet's orbit to it's surface in case an invasion is required. The Department of Logistics finest mechanics modified the battledroid scaffolding to hold large cargo crates, making this ship ideal for bringing large quantities of cargo from space to land.



Another design brought to life by Corellian engineers, the YV-666 is considerably larger than its smaller and cheaper counterparts. The ship sports a long, tall, blocky main hull with port and starboard maneuvering fins to the rear of the craft for vertical movement. A decent all-round ship, the YV-666 manages to retain the legendary ease of modification usually prevalent in smaller freighters. As with most of the YV series, the YV-666 is built around a two deck main hull. The top deck houses the bridge and navigation systems, while the bottom deck is devoted to engines, power cores, weapons systems and storage bays. The main deck, arguably the major selling point of the ship, is capable of housing both vehicles and fighters. The holds are large enough that one trader claimed he could fit a personal residence with room to spare for his speeder. As such, many pirates use the YV-666 as escort carriers on supply raids. Nevertheless, the ship's light armament puts it at something of a disadvantage when faced with better armed customized merchant frigates.


Bayonet-class Light Cruiser

The Bayonet-class cruiser was the first ship designed in the specific V-shape that allows a ship to concentrate nearly all its weapons on its front firing arc, a design later used successfully in the Star Destroyer line. This is also where the name 'Bayonet' originated, to indicate the specific dagger shape of the ship. At the time of development the Bayonet was revolutionary and turned the tide in many spatial battles. However, today the ship is a little outdated as heavier ships have taken her place. It was also noticed that the placing of the command module on the bayonet was too close to the ships main ion drives, causing frequent disturbances in communication. Most captains overcame this problem by using one of the starfighters assigned to the ship to act as a relay. Doing this, however, soon turned out to be a suicide mission for the fighter pilots as opponents discovered taking out that fighter was an excellent means of disrupting their enemies communication. However this does not mean that this is a ship to be trifled with. While it may no longer hold its own on the battlefield, it is still a serious threat to any freighter or starfighter. This is why the Bayonet-class today is mostly used by planetary governments to patrol relatively remote regions of space, in order to keep pirates and smugglers in check.


BFF-1 Bulk Freighter

One advantage of this type of transport is that despite its significant size, the BFF-1 has the ability to land. Besides cargo of all sorts, the manufacturers managed to make later versions acceptable for passenger transport, making room for about a hundred people. One other important attribute is the BFF-1's tractor beam. This is very handy if there's even more to haul, but it also helps multiple ships to stay in formation which is very important because these ships tend to travel in convoy.


Gallofree GR-75 Medium Transport

The GR-75 Medium Transport represents the epitome of engineering for the Gallofree Yard design teams. An older ship, marketed and produced several years ago, the design emphasizes the trademarks of the Gallofree Yard brand, namely, cargo space, customization, and affordability. The shell design of the GR-75 allows for easy and major modification for additional crew space, munitions cargo, mineral export or a dozen other transport-related needs. The design, while arguably superior in many regards to other ships of the same class in the crowded transport market, failed to catch hold due to the failings of the marketing and sales division of the company. Despite the age of the ship, the GR-75 Medium Transport has found a new life in recent years, as many companies find the ease of modification an asset, as well as its abilities for several roles including troop transport and scouting.



The YT-510 freighter is everywhere you look in Glythe and Centrality. Due to it's tremendous speed it has also been used many times to cross the galaxy in only a few parsecs. It's the smallest freighter in the DoL fleet. It can store only a little cargo, two passengers and a pilot.



The YT-1300 might be one of the oldest freighters in the galaxy but the ones that are used by the Department of Logistics all look like new. These well maintained freighters are used by Logistic's finest pilots to quickly transport personnel and small items to various known and unknown locations in the galaxy. This freighter can store up to seven passengers and a pilot. The ship is equipped with four bedrooms with a bunk and private closet each. The most famous YT-1300 in the Logistic fleet is TFL Ysalamir.
