Enterprises were set in competition through the supply chain against each other, and the first issue is to choose partners to construct the supply chain. According several principles, an evaluation index system, which contains product competitiveness, the enterprise internal competitiveness, and cooperation competitiveness, was established; indexes weight were calculated by AHP; and a new method to select supply chain strategic partners is put forward in this paper.
