To date, there are several routing points that can be utilitsed to retrieve the most accurate distance based on minimised sailing in ECA zones. These routing points must always be added manually to a rotation as the DDT is not adjusted to minimise sailing in ECA zones, i.e. the DDT calculates the shortest navigable route available.
