2018 is the 40th anniversary of reform and opening up. After 40 years of development, China's shipping industry has achieved rapid development. On the whole, the characteristics of China's maritime industry are large in scale and weak in strength, especially in the high-end shipping service industry. At present, most of the research on the shipping service industry focuses on the most developed cities in the shipping service industry such as London, Singapore and Hong Kong, and conducts an isolated empirical analysis or a static comparative study. The problem is that the global shipping center is completely separated from the general port city, and the general port city is excluded, which excludes the research on the rising shipping center, which limits the overall shipping service industry to a large extent. Awareness. Based on this, this article takes the high-end shipping service industry network as the entry point, and uses the high-end shipping service industry distribution data contained in the Lloyd's Maritime Enterprise Directory from 1982 to 2018, drawing on the world urban network research methods and complex network theory, multi-scale, Multi-type analysis of the distribution pattern, spatial connection and evolution mechanism of the high-end shipping service industry network, exploring the development of the global high-end shipping service industry in a long period of time, in order to provide reference for China to develop shipping power and port cities to enhance resource allocation capabilities.
