i think i might have found a potential candidate. disclaimer. it is an Imperial Craft. I mention it because it is stated to carry a large amount of cargo, and the design on which the ship is based is 1, quite common, and 2, already in game
its stated to be a converted Acclamator, carrying just over a half-million metric tons of cargo.
here's what I'm thinking.
you have converted CR90's, EF76's, Dreadnaught Heavy Cruisers, and MC80's in the Thrawn Campaign which are unarmed, yet carry cargo. perhaps we should try something similar with the Acclamator.
take an Acclamator-1 hull, downgrade the hyperdrive to a class 2. leave 2 Quad Turbolasers, 12 of the lighter guns, and 4 Medium Turbolasers, scrap the rest. downgrade the engines to 2/3-3/4 the speed of the Acclamator-1, same for shields. remove most of the troop quarters (keep enough room for about 500-2000, so the ship is still pretty versatile) and most if not all the provisions to launch the assault forces, and maybe leave room for a squadron of fighters.
So i'm thinking that it could be built from a level 4 yard (using the standard shipyard system), on account of it being such a large cargo ship.
oh and these will be Rebel craft
