First, you need to get interior dimensions from YOUR container supplier -- the interior dimensions vary a bit.

Second, you need to figure the best way to fit the boxes to minimize wasted space -- you can't fit half a box in any direction. You may need a "mixed" pack in which part of the container is packed in one box orientation, part in another to maximize space utilization.

In each direction, divide 20' container dimension by the relevant box dimension and drop any fraction (use INTEGER function), you can determine the number of rows, columns, layers. But you generally need to try various combinations to effectively use the space.
