This paper demonstrates the self-organization evolution of distributed Supply Networks (SNs) based on fitness landscape theory. The environment and the internal mechanism are the origin of SN evolution. The SN emerges from the local interaction of the firms to fulfill the stochastic demands. The collaboration among firms is path dependence. The evolution of a SN is self-reinforcement and sensitive to initial conditions, which may lead to multiple equilibrium state and chaos. The evolution result is non-deterministic and can not be predicted precisely. The long-term strategy is better than short-term strategy for a firm in SN collaboration to adapt to the environment.
