Question for any couriers

An argument myself and my boss had

 

If you sent 3 packages to a UK destination and you sent 1 on a pre 10am delivery service and the other 2 on a much cheaper 24 hour service,

 

as their going to and being sorted for the same destination is it likely all 3 would be delivered at the same time - before 10am?

 

Personally I thought they'd arrive at the depot at the same time, then the pre 10 package would be separated from the other two, stuck in a different van which is delivering all of the local pre 10 packages. Then the other two would arrive later in the day, on a different van with a different driver

Could be either.

With my only courier experience being as a customer, I'd suggest they would collect all three, throw them in a skip in a back room 30 miles from your house and post you a card saying they weren't able to deliver and you'd have to come and get it.

 

And then tell you they'd sent it back to the sender if you actually turned up for it.
