Hi, welcome to the ranch!
The best way to work this place is to show us what you have and where you're stuck right now. We're happy to try to get you unstuck on one thing at a time. When you get past one problem come back and show us the next.
Tell us more about the assignment ... Do you have a number of containers? A rate at which they are loaded? Any other interesting bits like that?
Tell us what you have done or what you're thinking about doing. A great technique is to find the smallest part of the problem you can imagine and solve just that and absolutely no more. I'm talking about maybe 10 lines of code! Don't try to design or code too far ahead just yet. For example, do you need a container object to hold an id or weight or some other information?

A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
