All of Netlog’s warehouses are run by highly experienced logistics professionals, who oversee automated systems based on sophisticated platforms such as Manhattan, RedPrairie, Microsoft Dynamic AX and Axata. These systems allow for the detailed tracking of every product, and can generate in-depth reports that are studied in order to provide even further benefits for the customer.
