If these are SAS datasets you can use PROC COPY

 

FCOPY() function as of SAS 9.4 is an option. 

 

See code/samples here

Define "location" within your context.

Are those just directories in the SAS servers filesystem (including network mounts), or will you have to transfer to destinations that can only be reached via HTML, FTP, SSH or SMTP (mail)?
