At a spaceport, Obi-Wan and Luke meet Han Solo who agrees to take them to the Alderaan system on his spaceship. Obi-Wan asks if it's fast.
Solo: It's the ship that made the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs. I've outrun imperial starships. Not the local bulk cruisers, mind you. I'm talking about the big Corellian ships now.
Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope, film

Does the word "bulk" refer to the function of the ships — they carry cargo, or to the size of the ships?
Thanks.
