Planetary Interaction Customs Offices

I’ve been doing planetary interactions for a few weeks now and I’m ready to establish a customs office. My question,I know I start with the Gantry first and then use the 4 pi commodities to upgrade to the office. Does this all have to be done at the same time? Do I have to deploy the gantry and do the upgrade together? I have all the materials just not a ship large enough to carry the whole cargo,around 11,000m3 total cargo space needed. Thanks for any info.

Never done it. But eve uni wiki suggests it’s a two stage thing. So i think you can drop the gantry and then get the rest of the materials.

I don’t know what the mechanics for someone stealing your gantry whilst you’re away though. So be careful.

Just wait 5 years and CCP will update it with a new easy to use Upwell structure.


And there in lies one of the problems. These dang gantry’s are not inexpensive,just to have it not be there when I returned… I’m thinking I’m gonna I might try a contract for a carries or a guardian…Thanks for the reply.

Haha, you may be on to something with that idea…

The gantry can’t be stolen, unless someone happens to be sitting there with lightning reflexes.

The process is:

  1. Deploy the gantry
  2. Anchor the gantry (at this point it is no longer scoopable)
  3. Deposit the remaining materials into the gantry.
