Excerpt from Loading American Grapes
Load Climax baskets of the 12-quart size 7 high, 4-quart size 12 high, and 2-quart size 15 high. Load all other packages to a height of not less than 48 inches nor more than 60 inches from the bottom of the first layer.
Bushel baskets, hampers, and miscellaneous boxes are not satisfactory packages for grapes, for they can not be loaded safely with economy.
All types of grape packages carry best when loaded by the straight system, i. E., with all pack ages end to end extending from one ice bunker to the other. In every other layer of Climax baskets it is necessary to load those that touch the bulk head crosswise of the car in order to fill in the otherwise vacant spaces, but this should not be permitted anywhere else in the load.
