The spacing is about 11" vertically between the lower bike and the higher one, and 12" horizontally, bike to bike. This spacing and staggering should give enough room for the handlebars not to tangle too much and the cranks not to either.

My hope was to  move the workshop and storage into the container.   I played the video.  It was a nice overview.   Do you have images of the inside layout?

We recently gained access to container (12m L x 2.3m W x 2.26m H; 40' L x 7.6' W x 7.4' H) to help manage our inventory of bikes and parts.  I want to maximize the capacity of the container, while allowing for easy access to the bikes.  I'm sure others have solved this optimization problem.
