Problems of Sustainable Development of Maritime Transport Industry
Nicholas Primachev, Natalia Primacheva

The article describes the features and trends of development of the marine transportation industry, that predetermine issues of sustainable positioning of system as a whole and its individual subsystems. Total dependence of the stability of the global economy on the level and parameters of the marine transport industry determines the appropriateness of the use of innovative strategies. At the same time there is a need for regulatory administration. It is worth noting permanent of changes of role and nature of the availability of certain types of resources in the system of sustainable development of subsystems. Innovative technologies for building potential of merchant fleet freight capacity and adequate competence of officers remain priorities. This condition determines the normal relations between ship owners and seafarers. The global importance of the marine transportation industry for efficient international labor division implies the principle of the symmetry of the system. Therefore, it is necessary to monitor the environmental impacts, the overall safety and normalized working and living conditions of crews on board. However, the totality of conditions for sustainable functioning of marine transport industry does not reduce the amount of system and non-system risks of owning and operating activity in commercial shipping. Control of balance between the potential of freight capacity and dynamic freight traffic is important.
