GTA Online has one of the most comprehensive experiences that any video game can offer. In GTA Online, the only real limit is your imagination. The first time you fire up the game, you’ll be blown away by the scope and scale of activities, businesses, shenanigans, and more that you can get into. One of the most interesting ones and perhaps one of the most fun ones is that of GTA Online Special Cargo.

In this article, I’ll go over everything you need to know about it! I’ll start you off with a basic overview, an introduction on how to actually get started and become a CEO, and then we’ll move into the meat of it and go from there. Sound good? Good! I hope that sounds good to you, because here we gooooo!

How Do I Get Started and Become A CEO?

Let’s not waste time playing around the real question. Let’s ask what you need to know right off the bat: What’s first? How do I get started in this business? Never you fear, my mysterious reader friend. I’m here to help.

GTA Online will let you become the CEO of a corporation (or, if you’re into it, the President of a Motorclub). You have CEO missions in the game, and as a part of the Further Adventures in Finance and Felony update, Special Cargo is one of those missions. These missions, though there is enough variation to keep things interesting, basically involve buying (or stealing) cargo. You can then sell them and make tons of money.

So, if you want to get started, here’s what you need:

Step 1: Become a CEO.

Step 2: Acquire a warehouse. You’ll need to buy yourself a warehouse, which is pretty easy. All you need to do is to the desktop in your Executive office and buy yourself one.

Step 3: Acquire cargo.

Step 4: Sell cargo.

Step 5: Celebrate your brilliant business mind.

Buying and Selling Cargo in GTA Online

The way that this is set up, the system does a great job of keeping things predictable without becoming boring. You need to have a firm grasp on selling and buying special cargo, which can look a little different. I’ll teach you the basics for both so you can get out there and become a ruthless business mogul.

Buying Special Cargo

You’ll need to make a quick trip to your office in the SecuroServ terminal. There, you can purchase Special Cargo. Here’s the good news: it’s simple and pretty straightforward. But, as you probably guessed by how I phrased that, there is bad news. Here it is: it can get really boring. Now, I can’t speak for everyone, but for me, this part can become monotonous. Why? Because you can only pick one crate at a time, and although it’s not all that bad at the start, if you do it enough, it will drive you into insanity. Do yourself a favor and appoint some Associates. They’ll do it for you so that you don’t have to devote all that time doing that ridiculously redundant chore.

Selling Special Cargo in GTA Online

But, alas, there’s another side you need to understand: how to sell special cargo. For this, you’re going to need a tool. More specially, you’ll need to have access to the Ad-Hawk Laptop. Don’t worry—you can find it in the warehouse. Through this, you’ll determine how many crates you want to sell. Here’s the big tip: be smart with when you sell. Yes, it matters. You need to wait for the opportune moment, and when you see it, be ready to sell. Once you sell it, you’ll need to move it. The game allows several options for exporting the special cargo through the sea, air, and land. For air transportation, you’re going to need to use the Cuban 800 or Titan. For sea transport, you’re going to need to use tug boats. Finally, for land transport, you guessed it: a truck. More specially, you can pick the Brickade trucks.

Best Tips for Success for Buying and Selling Special Cargo in GTA Online?

Not all people who go into this will be very successful. Some people will. But, a lot of it has to do with making mistakes. Here are some things to keep in mind when you’re just starting off!

Name your business with long term mentality. You can name your company for free for the first time you buy an office. If you decide to change it, it costs a pretty $250,000. Try to pick wisely the first time.

Do not confuse the Warehouse with the Car Warehouses. These are different things.

Special/Hot Products are Worth it. Every now and then, you’ll be made aware of an unusual product that only has one crate. These crates are much more difficult, but they’ll make you more money when sold.

Buy two warehouses, as they don’t share a cooldown time. You have a cooldown time after a buy mission, but it only applies to one warehouse.


Well, gang, there you have it! A brief explanation of everything you need to know to become adept at buying and selling Special Cargo in GTA Online! It’s not actually that complex, and when you get good at it, it can be very fun! Earn some loot, my reader friend!
