Supply chain is a hot topic with strong links in the industry and business applications. The overflowing information generation, increasing complexity of businesses, digitalisation of the supply chain, and introduction of advanced analytics capabilities are all topical issues in the supply chain. Visualization of supply chain inform action in this regards is more than ever important and critical: it provides an easy way to understand and act upon solutions for decision makers, reduces the cognitive load and brings strategic benefits to the business. The development of data analytics and visualization techniques have been booming while little attention was given in the academic literature to structure the landscape and draft the road for further development. The present paper addresses this gap by providing a comprehensive review of the current literature in the use of visualisation in this growing area of supply chain and logistics. The paper employs the PRISMA methodology to identify the main theme, particular areas of development and suggests the future directions for research. Such a structural view developed on the basis of top academic and industry publications, leverages its contribution by provision of a brief structural view of available directional developments and links them to practical applications.
