And the company’s financials aren’t too shabby either. On Wednesday Ryder said its first-quarter profit nearly doubled from a year earlier.

Looking more closely at the numbers, the company earned $12.4 million, or 23 cents per share in the first-quarter, compared with $6.8 million, or 12 cents per share, in the first quarter of 2009. In the year-ago quarter, the company had restructuring charges of 10 cents per share.
