The present paper deals with the transportation problem with uncertainty in demand and supply of items. In the previous years these types of problems have been discussed and presented a lot of algorithm to solve such type of problem in deterministic and stochastic environment. But only a limited number of authors have discussed the uncertainty in demand and supply. As practically we see that if there is a variation in demand and supply the cost of the item and transportation cost can be very as the transported vehicle capacity. If there is a variation in the capacity and supply of a vehicle then the cost of the transportation can effect. Here we will discuss such type of problem and make an algorithm to solve such situation. The LR-type fuzzy numbers are used to represent uncertainty in demand, supply and capacity of vehicle.
