I'm inclined to recommend SAVRSTOBJ, which Jim mentions - this is optimized, as I understand it, for this purpose.

I think there may be other factors involved such as the size of savf.
We have previously attempted cp but when very large objects involved we
still like savrstobj command.
What is the physical infrastructure between the two partitions or servers?
How big is the savf?
Would your choice of command change whether this travels over fiber versus
Ethernet? (Others who know more about hardware will know).

What is the context? I know of cp as a QShell or PASE command and not
aware of it being used between servers - what are you using to make
the servers visible to each other? NFS? QFileSvr.400?
