    Replying to [ira123]:A 12 bottle case is between 12x10x13" (LxWxH) and 14x10x13" (LxWxH) which means you can stack 36 cases onto a 48x40" US pallet.

    I'm not sure how many pallets per container but if my calculations are correct then it's 16 pallets for 20ft and 36 pallets for 40ft container.

    20ft container: 16 pallets x 36 cases x 12 bottles = 6,912
    40ft container: 36 pallets x 36 cases x 12 bottles = 15,552

    The 40ft container will be filled close to payload because a 12-pack case weighs about 45 lbs I believe.
