I am looking to use blender as shelf planning tool and I want to automate the array modifier. So when I place the packaging onto a plane, it should automatically fill the plane (like that: Packaging)

Is there any way to do that, or do I have to do it manually every time?

Thank you for your help :) BR

One of the options is to use "fit type - fit curve". You can fit the curve to your "shelf" or add some geometry to the curve so that it becomes the shelf.

enter image description here

Another option is to add a "driver" to the "fit type - fit length - length" parameter which will determine the length of the shelf.

enter image description here

The driver might be more complex than that, for example it might determine the size of the object's parent and fill it automatically if parenting is considered as "putting a package on the shelf".
