"... if possible "
FYI, that only means that 'vehicle' has to be able to lift 'cargo'. The position/distance does not matter, 'cargo' is automatically moved to a position that is close enough but doesn't doesn't collide with 'vehicle'. (can also be used if 'vehicle' is not flying, in which case 'cargo' will be placed and attached on the ground next to it).
