Fundamental requirements for all transportation systems are safety, efficiency and sustainable movability of any goods from shipper to clients with the entire delivery on time. Nowadays, this is ensured by contributions of different components and subsystems of the transportation systems.The article introduces structure and operations of two shore-based components of the maritime transport system (MTS), VTS and fleet operations centres (FOC), as well as coastal surveillance systems (CSS) and discusses selected aspects of the integration of these systems. The potentials and future roles of VTS/FOC/CSS in the MTS under the e-navigation framework are discussed also.
