In this study, it is aimed to explore the technology research and development processes in the field of logistics and supply chain management according to scientific publications and patent data. For this purpose, important research focuses on the field were revealed, authors, institutions and countries leading the field were determined, and sub-technology areas for technologies in the field of logistics and supply chain management were determined by patent analysis. In our research, in which technology mining method was used, patent analysis and bibliometrics were handled together. Our research also aimed to determine the important research focuses for the field. Accordingly, with the pandemic, in scientific studies in the field of logistics and supply chain management, it has been seen that connected ecosystem components such as bitcoin, Internet of Things (IoT), and smart contracts stand out as open and relatively untouched areas. On the other hand, it has been observed that the USA, the United Kingdom, China and India have come to the fore as the leading countries in the field, and the tendency towards research on data flow and sharing has increased in patent analysis.
