The national meeting serves as a platform for professionals in the corrugated packaging sector to exchange ideas, explore innovations, and foster relationships with other industry professionals.

Advantive is a proud member of AICC. This year, we look forwarding to sharing our vision for Kiwiplan and the new features we are looking to incorporate through the rest of 2024 and into 2025, including:

  • Set Information: Enhanced visibility of shipping and manufacturing sets that shows the status of each component.
  • Trailer Type Limit: Improved trailer scheduling automation that allows you to set your number of available trailer types and create more realistic trailer planning.
  • Sign On Glass: Ability for customers to sign for shipments on a tablet or mobile device.
  • Shift Product Dashboard: Increased visibility around shift production and output that provides a high-level picture of shift production in near real time.
