Unilever NA OTM – Key Challenges OTM Dock Scheduling Tool New tool takes longer to use; multiple screens required to schedule an appointment Issues scheduling appointments on-time for high-volume sites Need additional restrictions/functionality between carriers and sites to accommodate all dock scheduling scenarios Carrier EDI Issues Connectivity and mapping issues that prevented some carriers from receiving tenders via EDI in first weeks of go-live Majority of issues encountered weeks 1-2 of go-live were resolved Missing/Invalid Rates in OTM Rate set-up in OTM drives carrier selection in OTM so multiple carrier selection issues on inbound/outbound sides Incorrect or discrepancies with Transit Times – increased work for carriers to validate dates on tenders 33
Unilever OTM NA – Benefits of Pilot The Margarine, Spreads, and Toppings (MST) pilot allowed the project team to: Implement a full inbound and outbound network with a dedicated refrigerated carrier base Implement NA network with sites in US and Canada Implement all system connectivity and interfaces prior to major volume coming onto the system Address MST exception process where transportation planning is handled on-site (rather than in Trumbull) Identify importance of master data to new inbound processes and formulate comprehensive plan to complete master data updates prior to August release Run full cycle of training and validate where gaps in training exist for end usersConfidential | For Unilever Internal Use Only 34

Current Focus Areas System Integration and Performance (OTM/SAP) Automated bulk plan timing in OTM as expected Systems are processing quickly with minimal errors Enhancements have been made to the Outbound Bulk Plan queries, Performance has improved as a result Inbound Delivery Note errors from SAP to OTM continue to decrease; 93.8% no touch rate compared to 87% the first week PGLS team monitoring failed integration errors and resolving with the impacted users EDI Set-up for Ocean shipments International OTM work shop hosted to identify and close GAPS Testing on EDI 300-series messages will confirm ocean carrier connectivity with OTM 36
OTM Overview As-Is and To-Be Main differences between current TMS and OTM: As-is To-be Optimization through routing guides Optimization through actual carrier and weight-based rules rates and multiple combinations Optimization through Opt Jobs Optimization through Bulk Plans Inbound orders entered manually in Inbound orders created as delivery TMS; shipment status cannot be notes in SAP and sent to OTM; tracked in SAP shipment status can be tracked in Shipment IDs generated directly in SAP TMS and sent to carrier and SAP Shipment IDs generated in OTM and Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) SAP before sending to carrier transactions are sent directly from EDI transactions are managed by carriers to TMS E2Open before sending to OTMConfidential | For Unilever Internal Use Only 37

Titre TRANSPORTATION CHALLENGES • Using a dedicated fleet (Round trip) as well as common carriers (One way) – Depending on costs, carrier capacity, destination and equipment type • Using flat rates, rates in $/KM and rates in $/Hour. TL and LTL. • Doing stores’ deliveries, stores’ pickups and vendors’ pickups – Multi drops and Multi pickups. • Using of depot to consolidate store returns. • Doing cross-docking and pooling with carriers and DCs.
Titre OTHER CHALLENGES • Working with stores’ and vendors’ calendar (delivery and pickup window). • Shipping from multiple Distribution Centers to the same store, the same day. • Having near than 1000 outside users of OTM Web portal. • Needing to develop interfaces with our other in-house systems.
Titre WHY IMPLEMENTING A TMS ? • No existing transportation system except for an Excel/Access tool for static routing and a dispatch system. • Volume is too big and too complex to be optimized manually (around 125 deliveries/day and 150 pickups) • We relied on users’ knowledge and vigilance. • Need to optimize inbound and outbound loads together to reduce costs. • Need to manage volume growth and future acquisitions. • Reduce manual processes for invoicing and data analysis.
Titre OTM SOLUTION OTM implementation includes the following modules : – Oracle Transportation Management – Oracle Transportation Operational Planning – Oracle Fusion Transportation Intelligence – Oracle Freight Payment, Billing and Claims – Oracle Transportation Sourcing – Oracle Fleet Management
Titre PROJECT SCOPE (Phase 1) - Planning inbound/outbound 2 DCs - Reporting, KPIs - Web portal for vendors and stores- Planning inbound/outbound 1 DC- Reporting, KPIs- Web portal for vendors and stores
Titre FUTURE PHASES• Fleet Management Module• Financials (interface with Oracle EBS) -Invoice match -Freight payments -Billing
Titre PROJECT STEPS • Establish our business requirements (200) • Select a TMS • Do a Fit and Gap analysis • Document “As is” and “To be” processes • Hold design sessions and CRP (Conference Room Pilot) • Develop interfaces with in-house systems • Configure OTM – VANILLA SOLUTION • Test solution
Titre PROJECT STEPS • Build training material. • Communicate to external users Login and Password to use OTM Web portal. • Train internal and external users. • Go Live with solution. • Support users after Go Live. • CHANGE MANAGEMENT
Titre WHAT WENT WRONG • Configuration of complex carriers’ rates – Should have work on simplification before configuring them (Too much effort) • Configuration of many different carriers used in different regions – Had to use penalty factors to force carrier assignment in some region • Performance – Need to trade optimization against time of execution because of constraints of operation • Use of Web Portal for stores to send their pickup requests; a big change for them
Titre WHAT WENT WELL• Revision of processes is a good way to get improvement.• Flawless Go-Live.• Able to implement inbound and outbound planned together as well as continuous moves.• Still VANILLA SOLUTION.• Improvement of cubic meter / shipment by 20 to 30 % on day 1.• Improvement on tracking of vendors’ performance.• Improvement on skus dimensions.• A lot of data available for further analysis and more opportunities for improvement to come.
Titre LESSONS LEARNED • OTM is a very sophisticated system to configure and requires a lot of efforts • Never underestimate the complexity related to the integration of OTM with your in-house systems. • Vanilla solution still requires a lot of configuration and parameters set up
Titre LESSONS LEARNED • Identify good business resources and have them dedicated to the project…for a long period of time. • You will never communicate too much to the different stakeholders about the changes that they will go through.
