Advise on which transport ships to choose to play on an alpha account

Advise on which transport ships to choose to play on an alpha account.
I have to get within 5 million SP.
Objective: to transport ships and modules through High Security Space systems for the main character.

The main character is proficient in Prowler and Mastodon.
The main character will have a very low SS (close to -10) and live in Low Security Space systems.

How do you recommend transferring ships and modules to the main character?
Should the main character go into the High Security Space system or should the alpha character go into the Low Security Space system?

Doesn’t matter tbh as alpha you don’t get access to cloak, so no matter how much tank or speed you put on if you carry enough isk in it, it will die.

I put my hauling alt on my same account my main is on it has both trade skills and hauling with standings maxed for the trade hub it sits in.

Fit is:
[Bustard, pop]
Reactor Control Unit II
Power Diagnostic System II
Co-Processor II

Gistum B-Type EM Shield Amplifier
50MN Y-T8 Compact Microwarpdrive
Multispectrum Shield Hardener II
Large Ancillary Shield Booster
Multispectrum Shield Hardener II
Gistum B-Type EM Shield Amplifier

Improved Cloaking Device II

Medium Low Friction Nozzle Joints II
Medium Hyperspatial Velocity Optimizer II

Navy Cap Booster 150 x99

I havn’t lost a dst in 9 years now, mwd cloak is ftw and a must have to go through high + low sec.

If you cannot cloak because you spawn next to a turret or something then you have a huge active tank vs blasters and 60k ehp overheated for enough time until concord arrives. Chances are by the time you get a bad spawn they will not have enough people there and ready to kill you, I’ve tanked a 15man gank with this once and it was just bad luck getting a bad spawn on eudema but it survived against like 2 talos some thrashers and a bunch of catalysts and they all died while I was still at 50% shields left and some cap charges left in the ancil it’s overkill.

I do run mine with a full high grade crystal set but honestly its not needed.

P.S. I forgot to add to the fit but keep a blue pill + that other tanking drug and some 150 navy cap charges at all times.

With a max crystal set and drugs the tank is
6.5k rep/s against blasters (7.6k if you abyssal the ancil)
96.8k ehp against blasters 60k omni and 55k vs em/exp

The problem you are trying to solve here is that your main character cannot easily move to HS due to low SS, active wars or simply does not want to move to HS so it can stay in LS for content.

My advice is to put your hauling alt not on a second account that is Alpha, but to put the character as secondary character on your first Omega account.

Downside: it cannot train for free, so you have to either stop training your main account for some weeks or pay for multiple character training certificates until you have decent hauling skills.

Upside: your hauler can now fly Prowlers and Mastodons too and can safely bring your stuff wherever you need it. From Jita to your LS station, your hauler can do it all.

That is what I chose for my hauling character, which can fly Blockade Runners, Deep Space Transports and even Jump Freighters to safely move my goods anywhere from structures in NS to Jita and back again.
