The only hauling ship, with drones, that i know of, is the 4k cargo hurricane… which isn’t actually a hauler. Using secure cans, expander IIs and rigs, you can squeeze 4k of cargo into a hurricane with a big, fat shieldbuffer, turrets and even drones.
You have a job, then you find the ship that’s the best to abuse for the job. That’s why i have been using high speed, cloaky interceptors with long range weaponry turrets; or cloaky, combat probing hero tackle interceptors with tracking disrupter and points. Many years ago.
Don’t just take a ship you know is meant for the job. Take the job, and find the ship that does it best. Knowing the art of fitting ships definitely helps. I wouldn’t use a hauler to move several stacks of stuff within 4k, despite haulers being meant to move 4k.
There’s better options for that, like the cargocane.
