The concept of the term, Transportation System, draws attention to the movement over geographical space and time of people and goods, in a structure like compartment or frame. This movement, at a time in history was possible through the road mode; then the waterways. It later extended to the railways, then the air and much later, the pipelines. With advances in the application of systems and codes, we began to witness huge data flows and transfers, including the much applauded electronic transactions’ system platform, on which we aid our businesses. In view of the phenomenal developments around these systems and codes, information and communication systems evolved, resulting in telecommunications network, for the transfer and management of data files. An attempt is made to match the features of this system with the fixed facilities for defining transportation systems and their individual characteristics.
