Passengers require an SIC or an AP in lieu of an SIC. No passengers (ie: cargo) then no SIC or AP is required.

135.101 Second in command required under IFR.

Except as provided in 135.105, no person may operate an aircraft carrying passengers under IFR unless there is a second in command in the aircraft.
