The Icon Block Small Cargo Container Small Cargo Container is a block in Space Engineers. It serves as inventory storage.

The Small Cargo Container comes in two variants: one for Large Ships/Stations that is a 1x1x1 cube, and a version for Small Ships that is a 1x1x1 mini-cube.


With Realistic settings, the Small Cargo Container has an inventory with a capacity of 125L on small ships and 15,625L on large ships and stations. It can be accessed by highlighting the inventory panel and pressing 'K'. The inventory accepts all items, acting as general storage.

If attached to a conveyor system, the container is flagged to receive pushed items from and send pulled items to other blocks.[1] The Small Cargo Container variant for Large Ships/Stations sports a large conveyor port on every side, so placement angle is not an issue... but the version for Small Ships only has two small ports on opposing sides, so placement is much more complicated.

In Update 01.094[2], the Medium Cargo Container and both types of Large Cargo Containers had their storage volumes changed to match the storage density of Small Cargo Containers. Cargo containers of all types are now equally volume-efficient, storing 1000 L of cargo for every cubic meter that the block occupies. Recall that a largeblock is a cube 2.5 meters on edge and so has a volume of 15.625 m^3; a smallblock is a cube 0.5 meters on edge and so has a volume of 0.125 m^3.
