Army Developing New Cross-Function Team with Focus on Logistics Modernization

March 30, 2023

Redstone Arsenal, Alabama will be home to a new modernization team the Army is creating to develop contested logistics capability, Gen. James E. Rainey, head of Army Futures Command, said, according to Defense News.

The team will be the ninth cross-functional team Army Futures Command has established to address modernization. It will “focus on tactical, division and below issues” delivering capability by the 2030 timeframe, Defense News reported.

Rainey made the announcement this week in Huntsville, Alabama, where he was the keynote speaker at the Association of the U.S. Army Global Force Symposium.

“There’s a ton of talent here in the logistics business,” Rainey said of Huntsville in a Defense News interview.
