Abstract: Stochastic fuzziness existed in supply chain process has important influence on inventory maintenance and decision processing of normal system operation, especially under the situation of coupling existed in two echelon supply chain, this influence will be amplified to some extent. First, for the studied two echelon supply chain objects, joint cost has been taken as target to make optimal model design; second, considering about the stochastic fuzziness existed in two echelon supply chain, the demand rate of market for products as well as supply and distribution time have been selected as main research parameters, two echelon supply stochastic demand model based on triangular fuzzy number has been constructed and then model solving process has been deduced according to the characteristics of design model; last, verification for the performance of proposed model has been made based on parameter influence experiment and horizontal contrast.

Keywords: joint cost; fuzzy demand; demand rate; two echelon supply chain; distribution; logistics.
