STC takes charge of transporting geological samples from the storage site to the STC core repository. The material handling vehicles are deployed and the cases are palletted, wrapped and strapped prior to loading. Transportation from the collection site to the core repository is assured by professionals.
STC possesses an organisational structure and professional conservation means that are specially adapted to the archiving of geological specimens. The secure building, which can accommodate up to 200 000 metres of samples on rack-shelving, has been designed and developed on the basis of our experience, expectations and our duty to conservation.
