This paper will present the application of text data mining (TDM) methodologies to obtain accelerated in-depth understanding of the state of the art in the field of transportation and distribution logistics.

Logistics document collections were developed from Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) technical reports. The purpose of the analysis is to create and analyze a compilation of literature to understand the vocabulary, sub-topics, and domain knowledge encompassing the field of logistics.
