Yamato Transport Co., Japan’s leading door-to-door courier firm, is considering withdrawing from its same-day delivery service for Amazon.com Inc. to reduce the heavy workload on its drivers, sources close to the matter said Friday.

The online retail giant offers the service to customers who pay a ¥3,900 annual fee, using Yamato to deliver parcels on the same day orders are placed. But the service is taking an increasing toll on Yamato’s drivers because of the high volume of nighttime deliveries.
