From Warhammer 40k - Lexicanum
Fuel Transports are a vital part of Imperial supply chains, as they ship fuel and other materials to Industrial Worlds incapable of producing their own raw materials, Imperial Guard army groups, and Imperial Navy fleets. These ships carry many smaller shuttles to ferry the fuel from ground refineries up to the Transports. Such shuttles are at least 500 meters (1640 feet) long, and around twelve land at a time to acquire the fuel.
