Wares can sometimes be found floating in space. They may be jettisoned by traders as a result of police activity, hacked from cargo ship or station storage, or jettisoned from destroyed ships.

Cargo Ware

These wares can be picked up with the Albion Skunk by just flying over it. They are stored in your personal inventory, and can be traded directly with NPCs on stations. This one must be picked up in Cargo-mode by appropriate Cargo ships depending on their storage type (Bulk, Container, Energy, or Liquid). They are traded using the trade menu.
