Recommendations Requested For Camera Coverage Of Logistics Warehouse Aisles

This has been an unclarified question of mine for quite some time. There are a couple ways to skin the cat. Curious if one solution is an obvious winner.

If you have a warehouse aisle (fork truck shipping and receiving) 300 feet long with 35 foot ceiling, what is the best camera selection and placement to maximize coverage (minimized dead zones) and minimize cabling (two cameras at one location better than separated by 50' or 100')?

I have done test shots on a ten foot tripod but have never gone up to 30-35 feet to see the real results (good old Pythagoras knows the geometry is different). I have always used corridor mode in this scenario.

Do you prefer crisscrossing cameras, piggy backing cameras or some combination of both? Do you prefer longer mm lenses shooting the scene farther from the camera or shorter mm lenses with better dead zone coverage?

Some have mentioned fisheye's but that seems to be a waste of a lot of pixel density on stagnant shelves.

I've used design tools but have not seen real world results in great detail. Curious if anyone has real world experience with the best camera lensing and placement for this scenario.
