Fremantle Ports’ Voyager Dangerous Cargo (VDC) system is accessible to registered users via secured sign in ID and password.

The VDC computer system is the main tool for monitoring and managing dangerous cargo movements (load, unload and/or transit) through the Port of Fremantle. It integrates with the shipping information management system that manages ship visits and movements.

The VDC system is available 24/7 on this website and is designed for use by shipping agents, principal agents, stevedores, slot charter partners, regulatory authorities and Fremantle Ports employees. VDC allows dangerous cargo to be declared onto bulk, break bulk and container vessels.

Technical requirements

The Voyager Dangerous Cargo website is designed to operate in the Internet Explorer browser although it may work successfully in other browsers.

If you click on the Voyager Dangerous Cargo link and find nothing happens, the most likely cause is that your Internet Explorer settings require adjustment (ie. Trusted site and / or Pop-up blocker).  To resolve such problems, you should contact your organisation’s technical support team.
