Abstract: We set out to discuss in this paper about maritime transportation. It is known that more than 90% of global trade is supported at sea. In the last century, the shipping industry recorded an increase in total trade. The growth of industrialization and the liberalization of the national economies have favored free trade and increased demand for consumer products. The development of technologies has caused maritime transport to evolve efficiently and become a prompt method of transport. A look at the international maritime transport system presents a system consisting of three components, namely: the maritime transport system (freight and passengers), auxiliary maritime services (any activity related to cargo handling in ports and ships) and port services (activities related only to management ship in ports). Maritime transport and is an integral, sometimes less visible, part of the world economy.
