    Cargo Transfer ?

    Is there a quick way to do this...or does it all have to be done by hand?

    I have a few areas on my map where I am mining minerals I can't find elesewhere, and have some cargo hauling trucks that can carry bulk loads of ore back to my main base. Trouble is...I seem to spend far too much time clicking on containers and moving blocks of 90 to and fro.

    Is there no way to do this faster?

    One of the pains of the game at the moment, unfortunately. There's a few suggestions in to allow fast transfers, but it's all manual at this point.

    If/when possible I haul parts instead of ore.

    Medium 3D printers are not costly, so I build one for each part.

    For example: I’ll queue a printer to make 999,999 frames and another to make plates.
    And when I’m ready to transport I can get 10 stacks of 90 parts from each printer.

    Yeah...that's pretty much what I have ended up doing. Every vehicle has a medium 3D printer, and it's making plates or frames as I drive along. Trouble is...most of my bases do not have local supplies of iron/carbon...so my main base has become a massive factory as it has the iron. Wall to wall printers.
