How to copy a file from one location to another location?

I have file file1.txt in location 'loc1'. Now i want a copy of this file in location 'loc2' with a new file called test.txt.

Please help me how to do this in shell script.
# 2  
If loc2 is same server then use cp, else if its different server then use scp command

Code:
cp ${loc1}/file1.txt ${loc2}/test.txt 
 
(or)
 
scp hostname:${loc1}/file1.txt hostname:${loc2}/test.txt
