The 1Ds were standardized cargo vessels. The design was standardized by the Ministry of Communications, with assistance from the Navy Ministry, early in 1942, and was based on uniform specifications adopted by several yards prior to the war. The 1Ds were not significantly different from peacetime designs and were intended for economical use after the war.

The ships used coal-fired reciprocating engines and had two hatches located forward and aft of the deckhouse.
