Does 2nd class post just sit on a shelf for 2 days?

What happens to second class post? Do they just put it on a shelf and leave it for two days?
Paul, Gatwick

Answer

** Definitive **
Name: Scott, Romford
Qualification: Used to be a delivery driver
Answer: The parcels and letters arrive in a big lorry and go into a big bank in front of you. You sort out the post for the next day and the one-day post goes back into the lorry. The two- or three-day post will be put back and left for the next day. So yes, it is essentially left on the shelf for two days. I once got in trouble for delivering three-day post the next day!
