The supply chain management poses significant challenges with respect to solving the issues of trust and open participation when dealing with processes such as management of product supply information, product lifecycle, transport history, etc. This paper explores the trust and decentralization issues prevalent in the main stages of the supply chain and checks their candidacy for the implementation using blockchain technology. The analysis is performed in terms of the characteristics of trust and decentralization with respect to forming a generalized framework. The main contribution of this work is a conceptual overview of the areas where blockchain technology could efficiently support the supply chain management in order to benefit further research and development.
