The Millennium Falcon is described as a modified YT-1300 freighter, but aside from some smuggling compartments it doesn’t have much room to carry freight.

Found on Reddit comes this excellent explanation of what the front part of the Millennium Falcon was used for in terms of being a freighter. This makes a lot of sense to show why the ship was designed the way it was. And the speed at which the Falcon can travel makes a lot of sense if it’s basically a tug that’s meant to push it’s freight containers instead of carrying them itself.
