In this paper, a three-level supply chain network equilibrium problem with direct selling and multi-commodity flow is considered. To this end, we first present equilibrium conditions which satisfy decision-making behaviors for manufacturers, retailers and consumer markets, respectively. Based on this, a nonlinear complementarity model of supply chain network equilibrium problem is established. In addition, we propose a new projection-type algorithm to solve this model without the backtracking line search, and global convergence result and $R-$linearly convergence rate for the new algorithm are established under weaker conditions, respectively. We also illustrate the efficiency of given algorithm through some numerical examples.
