The Loose Module (M) is a medium-capacity storage for loose products which automatically unloads Cargo Ships. It features storage for 720 units and two output connections for U-shape Conveyors (or their variants).

The throughput of unloading the compartment of a Cargo Ship with this module is 360 / 60 Clock.png . This rate can be matched with one U-shape Conveyor III or two U-shape Conveyor II. It should be noted that ship transit and docking also take time:

  • 180 Clock.png (3.0 months) for round trip if "Reduce ship speed & save fuel" is disabled
  • 360 Clock.png (6.0 months) for round trip if "Reduce ship speed & save fuel" is enabled
("Reduce ship speed & save fuel" is a setting in Cargo Depot)
  • 10 Clock.png (5 days) for docking and undocking

The summarized information is shown in the below table.
