Default Is there a case for a new skill of "Loadmaster"?

In Traveller, there are skills for working with passengers, notably 'Steward', but none appear to deal with cargos and/or freight. I believe this, on reflection, to be a serious omission.

In contemporary shipping, be it air freight or sea freight, load balancing, hazmat, access, and prioritising, are all key factors in assessing and actioning where a given ISO container, loose freight, unusual shaped loads, and even bulk liquids, powders, and so on, are stored in a freighters holds.

So, given a lack of combination or cascade skills required for the job, and assessing that JoAT is not up to the very specialised task of managing the role, is there a case for adding this skill to the list?

I say yes, but I'm interested in hearing what you might have to say on the topic
