Han Solo and Chewbacca hiding cargo in their smuggler's hold

"A smuggler's only as good as his hiding places."
―Han Solo[1]

A smuggler was an individual who dealt with the secret exchanged shipment of goods to evade restrictions or tax fees. The items shipped were often considered contraband, and highly illegal.[2] Smugglers would move all kinds of illegal merchandise into forbidden areas, breaking any law that stood in their way regardless of who made it. They would then sell their cargo on the black market, deliver it to a client, or use it themselves. Notable smugglers included Han Solo, his partner Chewbacca, and Lando Calrissian.[3]

During the High Republic Era, when his mother Kyong Greylark cut him off from monetary support, Axel Greylark managed to make a fortune as a smuggler, although he always lost his money shortly after making it. He did not describe himself as a smuggler but as a "freelance shipping redistributor."[4]
