The inception of TMOF Couriers arose from Tshidiso’s decade-long tenure at the South African post office, fuelling his passion for mail communication. The motive, however, stemmed from addressing prevalent issues like delayed deliveries, damages, and theft. His vision was to introduce a reliable and swift courier service, catering even to Kasi consumers and small businesses.
Tshidiso shared, “My driving force to embrace entrepreneurship was rooted in combating unemployment and creating opportunities for future generations, including my own children.”
The nomenclature “TMOF Couriers” integrates the courier essence with his initials, T for Tshidiso, and MOF derived from the prefix of his surname, Mofokeng. This fusion conveys a collaborative image, echoing the notion of a Team of Couriers, emphasising teamwork in providing exemplary courier services.
Established in January 2023, TMOF Couriers has garnered trust within ten months, with a focus on fulfilling the demand for Same Day Delivery in the bustling Gauteng province. Additionally, they offer 3-day delivery for business-to-business transactions and a Swift Errands service, streamlining various tasks for our clients.
“Building a robust customer base involves effective marketing on social media platforms and consistently delivering excellent service. Professionalism and respect are paramount in this endeavour. Our primary marketing approach involves social media platforms, predominantly Meta, but the most successful tactic remains a referral strategy. Engaging current clients to recommend our services to potential clients has proven highly effective,” said Tshidiso.
The organisational culture at TMOF Couriers centres around treating clients like gold, emphasising respect and consistent communication.
Tshidiso’s motivation is derived from a profound connection with God and family, as he strives to fulfil the vision bestowed upon him.
When asked what his greatest fear in business is, he replied, “My greatest fear in business revolves around over promising and under delivering. To mitigate this, I prioritise building capacity before making promises, ensuring the preservation of trust.”
For Tshidiso, success is measured by the impact on people because growing a business requires positively influencing those involved. Consistency, in his view, is the singular formula for entrepreneurial success.
The flexibility of time is Tshidiso’s favorite aspect of being an entrepreneur, allowing him to navigate business demands while maintaining a balanced lifestyle. The most gratifying moments in Tshidiso’s business are reflected in the reviews received from his clients on platforms like Google Reviews, affirming their satisfaction with his services.
