We consider supply planning in a production network as a distributed effort for matching future demand and supply by relying on asymmetric and partly uncertain information. Even though they decide autonomously and locally, partners in a production network should act in a concerted way. For approaching the two main conflicting goals - high service level and low overall costs throughout the network - there is a need of a specific coordination media for managing the intentions and interactions of the partners. Starting from the design principles, we describe a so-called Logistics Platform that provides a complex service for communicating and evaluating all relevant information that may effect the operation of supply channels. We have a particular interest in coordinating a focal supply network that produces customized mass products. In a nutshell, we present the implementation technologies of the Logistics Platform and sum up the lessons of the test phase of the deployed application.
