cargo

Here is my best explanation:

'freight' is the definition.
('cargo' can be a synonym of 'freight')

'drivers' club is taken over by function' is the wordplay.
'drivers' club' becomes 'rac' (UK automotive organisation).
'is taken over' shows that the letters should be reversed in order.
'by' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'function' becomes 'go' ('go' can be a synonym of 'function').
'rac' back-to-front is 'car'.
'car'+'go'='CARGO'
