The Metro team talk: Tom Fernihough

Joining Metro in 1994 Tom has worked across the business in a wide variety of roles, evolving and developing into the twin roles that he currently takes responsibility for.

In the same way that Metro, in Tom’s words, ”has evolved to serve customers perfectly”, he has evolved, during his time in operations, commercial, CRM, account management, risk management, projects and customs to take on the unique roles of Automotive Director and Director of (key joint venture partner) Fracht UK.

As Automotive Director, Tom has responsibility for one of Metro’s key verticals, managing supply chain operations for some of Europe’s leading equipment and automobile manufacturers, including many premium marques.

Also cared for by Tom’s team are manufacturers and suppliers of parts and components, including global brands and original equipment manufacturers.

Our joint venture partner, Fracht specialise in the biggest and most demanding cargo movements for the energy, technology and gas sectors.

With 115 offices across EMEA, Asia, Australia and America, Fracht UK is led by Tom, who’s team conduct site and route surveys to plan the lifting, securing and international transportation of heavy lifts, long lengths, volume and turnkey contracts globally.
