The relevance of E- logistics has led to a notable increase in research work during the last few years. Bibliometric analysis helps to understand the development of knowledge on a specific subject and assess the scientific influence of research and sources. The study aims to map the evolution of publications trends in E- logistics between the year 1981 to 2022(till 26/5/2022), through a bibliometric analysis. A sample of 402 studies from the Scopus database was analyzed using the VOS viewer tool to distinguish research activity on E- logistics. The citations, publications, location, and network events are used to trace out the most prominent articles and authors. the highest number of publications is observed in 2021, with a total of 59 documents (14.67%). The subject of Computer Science is majorly depicted in the studies of E- logistics (21.91%), followed by Engineering (17.26%). Meanwhile, the subjects of Business, Management, and Accounting (10.36%), Decision Science (8.50%), and Mathematics (7.04%) contributed to the total publication of E-Logistics. The five most productive countries were China, the USA, India, South Korea, and Italy. The findings of this study could prove useful for studies in E- logistics, as they show a global evolution trend and from there, propose future research initiatives.
