I recommend taking on-location measurements to determine how far the signal is currently propagating at strength sufficient to maintain 10 Mbps throughput, under representative container configurations, measured at regular intervals throughout the yard. You may need to add more wireless mesh nodes -– but more likely, you may want to use directional antennas to better focus transmissions between mesh nodes into walkways and vehicle lanes that provide clear line-of-sight. But don't just add mesh nodes; a thorough site survey is definitely the place to start.
