The STM Validation project said that tests would happen in five shore centres. Tallinn VTS is the sixth (!) to join. Are Piel, Head of VTS Department, Estonian Maritime Administration: “We wanted to join Sea Traffic Management (STM) as soon as possible. The prerequisite for vessel ensuring traffic safety and providing vessel traffic services is to know vessels’ intentions and their exact sailing plans and this is what the STM route and data exchange services do.“
STM connects and updates the maritime world in real time with efficient information exchange. In the 60s the standardised container revolutionised shipping. The next revolution is the containerisation of information – creating a safer, more efficient and environmentally friendly maritime sector.
