cargo

goods and merchandise, other than the personal luggage of passengers, carried by a ship or aircraft.

CARGO, mar. law. The entire load of a ship or other vessel. Abb. on Sh. Index, h.t.; 1 Dall. 197; Merl. Rep. h.t.; 2 Gill & John. 136. This term is usually applied to goods only, and does not include human beings. 1 Phill. Ins. 185; 4 Pick. 429. But in a more extensive and less technical sense, it includes persons; thus we say a cargo of emigrants. See 7 Mann. Gr. 729, 744.
