The mobile objects in the supply chain present the means of transportation, and they have an influence on the functioning of the supply chain. The mobile object bring a correct information, where and when necessities, to reduce the uncertainty, increase the visibility of products and increase the global efficiency of the supply chain. The supply chain is a system characterized by the mobility between the various processes of the chain as well as the mobility pattern of materials including the vehicle which carries in transportation network. Mobility mining is the process of extracting hidden knowledge from moving object trajectories. This is a concept paper which visualizes the scope of various mobility mining techniques for analysis and optimization of objects moving in transportation network.
