Nichirei Carib NV dba ICC Cargo is glad to announce that, on March 1st 2019, in the company of their employees and stakeholders, reopened its ultra modern OPP Pelgrim warehouse after having suffered major back to back catastrophes which totally destroyed their buildings.
September 6th, 2017, our beautiful island was devastated by Hurricane Irma and no words could ever describe the damage and hurt caused to St. Maarten, it’s people and
On May 5th, 2018, a fire further totally destroyed our warehouses and offices.
“Seeing our employees, while they all had their own personal and family hardships resulting from Irma, band together and work day and night to ensure operations continued as soon as possible, is something I still feel proud of every day”, said owner Mr. George Pelgrim.

George Pelgrim further added, “we made a commitment that all of our operations had to continue within days under makeshift conditions so that not one employee had to be laid off and all salaries were to be paid in full, despite both catastrophes."
9 months of hard work, reconstruction and upgrading resulted that today ICC Cargo is proud to announce that our new strategic state of the art Cargo Warehouse is now open for business and boasts 12 off-loading ramps within a entirely new 20,000 square ft area plus a brand new small parcels section.
