According to the characteristics of coastal enterprises, the trust between enterprises, the profit and the ability to complete tasks form the quality of the attraction in the cooperative field, and the willingness of cooperative enterprises to achieve cooperation, increase partners' profits and complete tasks constitute the distance between enterprises in the cooperative field. Based on this scenes, the cooperation network model is established and the partner selection model is deduced. Finally, verified above models by computer simulation. It is believed that the willingness of high-quality enterprises to cooperate actively, product innovation and broader support for SMEs are the keys to promote the initial cooperation of shipping SMEs.
