Logistics Base: A unique opportunity for Cordoba to place itself at the cutting-edge of technology

Director of Defence Business Development

This is an exciting project for the future of innovation in our region

The Army Logistics Base (BLET) project is fundamental for Cordoba and Andalusia, from all points of view, and especially for business. It thus represents a unique opportunity to place the city at the forefront of innovation, technological development and a logistics hub that will propel the city into the international arena.

The initiative will be of vital importance in the new era following the effects of the covid-19 crisis on the economy and employment. Likewise, the extremely important technological component of the Base and the weight of digitalisation in the field of Defence will lead to the expected revitalisation of the indus-trial sector.

In this context, cutting-edge technology will play an indispensable role. Concepts such as artificial intelligence, virtual reality, augmented reality and blockchain will be key.

At Magtel we have extensive experience in R&D&I and as part of this commitment we have created an area which we have called Business Development for Defence, headed by Juan Cifuentes Álvarez.

It addresses issues such as predictive logistics, big data, algorithms and efficiency, which are essential to promote change in production models, as well as the promotion of digitalisation to complement and improve traditional sectors.

In this context, it will be necessary for technology companies to establish alliances and develop synergies to strengthen and compete in order to transform the production model in Cordoba in the medium and long term, as will public-private collaboration.

Finally, academic institutions will have a funda-mental role to play, encouraging the promotion of specific training adapted to the new demands.
