I was recently given a story line mission to transport 40,000 m3 1 jump into low sec. I would prefer to not have to abandon it since I need the standings. Any suggestions on how I can safely complete this mission?

Can you break it up? Do you have access to a T2 cloaky hauler?

It can be broken up but I don't have access to a cloaky, not sure how long it would take to train.

You can use a T1 industrial. Prolly a Badger or Sigil. Put cargo expanders in the lows, a MWD in the mids, and a cloak in the highs. Then try the MWD+Cloak trick. If you don't know how to do the MWD+Cloak trick, do a search on Google. You will prolly have to do this multiple times. The hardest part is getting through the gate. Exiting the station should be fairly simple if you are not negative 5 sec status, and the system occupants aren't complete assholes; but this is EVE we are talking about. Test the route out in a cheap frigate.

Other than the above, you could try a courier contract.

Seconding a courier contract, put a good reward and a respectable collateral (check contracts to see if the items are there to get an idea what their value may be). Then all you have to do is get to the station to deliver the mission, which you should be able to do in something small, agile and fast

Thanks for the tips, i didn't know i could put a cloak on a badger. Is the mwd + cloak trick where you align use cloak and mwd to get as much distance from a camp as possible?

Out of curiosity how much would a contract like this go for? Black frog wanted 75mil :/

If the courier is greater than 10k m3 then no blockade runner can take it. Blockade runners aren't the only option, but they're the safest and most reliable, giving you the best chance of someone doing the job. Be sure to advertise the contract in local systems. And set adequate collateral.

Never forget.

How many jumps into lowsec? This is a big factor. If it's just one jump into lowsec not a big deal. If you have to use a T1 hauler fit a few Nanofiber Internal Structure II's. Yes it will reduce cargo capacity over Expanded Cargohold II's but it will cut your align time down.

Get a corp mate to scout for you. It your corp mates are scared of PVP have them make a no skills alt on the same account and fly a noob ship. Never jump blindly into lowsec with a T1 hauler. If there is a decent gate camp on the other side you will die MWD cloak trick or not.

If you can't do this decline the mission. You won't lose standing for declining the mission but you will lose them for failing it when you get blown up in lowsec.
