Load center organisation

I have a large 4 level home that I am doing a little work to and I need some ideas as to where to run wires to the 2, 40 breaker load centers.
My question is, should I run all the wires from each floor to one load center? There are 2 rows of spaces on each load center, should I run each floor to one row? Or should I use the bottom 20 spaces for basement and the top 20 spaces for floor 1 on load center one and the bottom 20 spaces for floor 2 and the top 20 spaces for floor 3 on load center two?

All comments are appreciated.

I don't believe it really matters everything will be labeled,which ever panel is closest to the load being served,most of the circuits most likely will need to be protected by AFCI breakers.

There is no code regarding this. You can do whatever makes sense to you.
