Totem Ocean

Freelock teamed up with Eben Design to build a new site for Totem Ocean Trailer Express, a shipping company that has two voyages between Tacoma and Anchorage each week. In addition to being a basic corporate site, this site has a few cool custom features.

Our favorite is the ship map. We built a Node.js server to receive a position feed managed by the Marine Exchange of Alaska. The ships send position data to this server, via radio or satellite, with position updates every few minutes in inland waters to  a few hours when out at sea. Our map updates the ship's position when we receive it.

Totem staff regularly updates their sailing schedule by uploading a spreadsheet. We also added a gate cam page that keeps a current image in view, and built a mobile theme.

We continue to work with Totem Ocean on a maintenance/support plan, and look forward to doing further integrations with their back office systems!

  1. I had the privilege of working with John and Freelock in launching a new Little League website. The process was flawless and the end product was magnificent exceeding our expectations. John knows his stuff! He had a wonderful ability to bring the perfect solution to our community based organization. Being volunteer run, we needed some special considerations in the way our website works, John understood this and delivered solutions that were perfect for us. We now have a cool website that also has the ability to grow with us into the future. I highly recommend John Locke and Freelock Computing.
