Transfer vs transport again

John Beatty reminded me that a friend told me a great business (aka non-plumbing) description of the differences between transport and transfer in the supply chain management space, where they use those very same terms. Paraphrasing, he said;

Transport refers to the movement of goods between locations. Transfer refers to the change of ownership of those goods.

Compare that with this REST vs. SOA diagram.
