Shelf Planner’s AI-based demand forecasting and automated replenishment.


With Shelf Planner, the company was able to automate forecasting, replenishment, inventory management and focus on what really matters – their coffee loving customers.

The owner’s love for coffee began when she was just a teenager, working at a local café, mesmerized by the aroma of freshly roasted beans. With time, her fascination evolved into a full-blown obsession with the art of roasting.

She launched an online store, showcasing her handcrafted blends to coffee lovers nationwide. With each bag of coffee sold, the store’s reputation grew and orders flooded in from all over Germany.

As the business expands, balancing supply and demand becomes more complex. Ensuring timely delivery while minimizing transportation costs and maintaining the freshness of the beans presents a logistical challenge, especially as her customer base expands to more remote locations.
