One of the standout features of MDF is its EU ETS compliance support, enabling users to accurately track CO2 emissions by vessel and across entire fleets. This functionality provides invaluable assistance in meeting regulatory requirements and facilitates more precise reporting of EU allowances, driving accuracy for commercial use and seamless compliance with emissions regulations.
