Pack Mule (Perk) was a perk added as of version Alpha 17. Along with the addition of this perk the encumbrance system was added to the game. In Alpha 16 the limit was all of the inventory but with the update only half are available at the start of a new game (before negative effects begin). It is heavily advised that points be invested in the perk as it can allow trips to be more productive and collection of resources must faster.
