When should you check in your bags at the airport

I have analysed this problem using 4 scenarios or quadrants. Let's assume it's a big flight and there is two cars which carry the bags from the terminal to the plane.

If you check in the 4th quadrant, then your bag goes to top of 2nd car B and you luggage is loaded as the third, it is unloaded as the second and goes on top of car A which brings the bag to baggage reclaim and the conveyor belt where it will be unloaded first. Reversely if you check in first you'll leave the destination last. This is all based on the first in last out principle and implies 'Take your time'.
