Some ships can be reconfigured to expand their cargo hold. This is no trivial upgrade, as it involves moving bulkheads and rerouting multiple systems, while maintaining the ship's inertial balance. Currently, there are quite a few ships that can sustain and accommodate the full 15 ton cargo bay expansion.

As a technological breakthrough is rumoured to be in the works, it is expected that more flexible cargo bay expansions may become available.
