ABSTRACT

In the era of digital and Internet technologies growth, digital transformation of supply chains already seems to be an unavoidable process that most companies have to face if they want to maintain their competitive advantages in the market or acquire new ones. Today "blockchain" technology is one of the breakthrough technologies that is increasingly attracting business representatives because it is designed to solve most of the problems of various companies. "Blockchain" technology is especially relevant for manufacturing enterprises, because they often face the problem of counterfeit goods, a low level of trust between contractors and problem of weak information security. The use of "blockchain "technology can eliminate all these problems; however, any company expects difficulties in implementing and adapting" blockchain" before the above problems are solved. One of the key challenges of implementing blockchain technology in the supply chain is the scale of digitalization accompanied by huge costs for purchasing Internet of things devices, creating digital tags and other elements of the digital supply chain. Over the past three years, the ecosystem of "blockchain" projects has changed dramatically: there are many more projects, the scope of application of the technology has expanded, and commercial software solutions for various types of companies have begun to appear on the market. This article will discuss the basic principles of the "blockchain" technology, types of "blockchain" systems and best practices in the use of technology in the management of supply chains of food industry enterprises.

The article explains the meaning of supply chain transparency and provides guidelines and methodology for mapping and expanding progress in understanding SC-Transparency. The analysis is based on overseas DRM experience shared by dozens of companies in all industries of all sizes over the past decade with consistent advances in DRM. Particular attention is paid to the analysis of the experience of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) – an initiative founded at the MIT Transport and Logistics Center; research by Sourcemap, a provider of supply chain transparency solutions; and research in this area by leading experts and analysts

ABSTRACT

 Today Blockchain technology is one of the breakthrough innovations that changes modern business and can bring it to a new level. Supply chain management (SCM) is one of the areas where this technology can manifest itself in the best possible light. Blockchain is designed to solve one of the most pressing issues of the SCM – ensuring the necessary level of transparency of the chain for all its participants. Every day, business increasingly faces the problem of counterfeiting, complicated document management or the problem of low-quality raw materials, in particular, in food industry. All these problems are a direct consequence of the lack of transparency required by the various scammers and attackers. Blockchain is a distributed and reliable data storage technology designed to solve the problems mentioned above. In this system, all participants have the same rights and access to information, and the system itself works through smart contracts that provide trust between participants. This paper examines the works of various authors and identifies the benefits of Blockchain technology and its application in SCM. In addition, successful examples of the use of this technology in business will be considered.
