Abstract—The purpose of this paper is to propose a visualization framework for container supply chain by modern information technologies. The concept of container supply chain is studied. The approaches of modeling and visualizing container supply chain are discussed. The model of container based data acquisition is studied. A holistic framework of visualizing container supply chain is built. The paper is clearly only conceptual and theoretical. Much empirical testing and case studies are yet to be done. The paper focuses on the container supply chain to cater for the increasing importance of containerization. How we can model the container supply chain and utilize the real-time information by container-based modern technologies is studied to support the inspection, management and control of the supply chain. With the development of domestic economy in China and international trade, it will be necessary to study this specific type of supply chain.

Index Terms—supply chain management, container transport, container supply chain, visualization, data acquisition.
