How to Fix Cargo Link Not Working in Starfield

Here is a list of known fixes from the Starfield community:

  • Fix 1: Delete and re-create the cargo platforms at both locations then try to re-link them (source: CPargermer on Reddit).
  • Fix 2: Deleting and resetting output links to all containers fixed it for me (source: Ouroboros612 on Reddit).
  • Fix 3: Make sure you’re using the appropriate pad. I accidentally mixed up the in-system ones with the out of system ones. For out of system, I have a fuel pad dedicated to receiving helium and only helium at each outpost. I haven’t found a way to regulate output so I found that ensuring my helium lines were separate helped. If you want change a link, you can delete them by putting your cursor anywhere on the red link lines and delete them like any other object (source: A_LeftNut on Reddit).
