"ShipTracks...provided the tool to more efficiently mobilize and manage decontamination teams in the field and therefore expedite the cleanup and recovery process."

I wanted to take this opportunity to express our sincere thanks to you for the effort you put forth in recent major DM-932 oil spill incident in the New Orleans Harbor and Lower Mississippi River in July and August of 2008.

With just one quick call placed by Mr. Raymond Butler of the Gulf Intracoastal Canal Association ShipTracks, LLC quickly responded and arrived on scene at the Unified Command Post in Bellechase, LA where upon arrival you quickly assessed the situation and then assembled a vessel tracking program. Your swift actions provided the tool to more efficiently mobilize and manage decontamination teams in the field and therefore expedite the clean and recovery process.

Thanks to your selfless actions, the maritime recovery process was significantly expedited saving the American People and all affected industries of this event an invaluable amount of time and resources.
