Yes, there's a button for that, I believe on the right-hand panel.

No. Unless you actually mean between SHQ stockpiles. Otherwise it's totally out of your hands - the only control you have is to enable or disable "allow emergency food".

That is the job of the SHQ.

Zones try to only keep 1 turn of consumption (2 with food) in inventory. Everything else - including the unusued storage capacity - is tagged with "for retrieval by the SHQ".

Yes indeed, I do mean between transferring goods (i.e., items: oil, metal, machines, etc...) between zones. I have one zone that just unearthed a bunch of machines from their ruins, but doesn't need them (yet) and another zone that is purchasing machines from traders. (or maybe it's the SHQ, I'm still getting all that straight in my head.)

Thanks for that link - very well done!
I am working through who pays for what and how with respect to items/assets and still am a bit confused with it. It seems sometimes the SHQ coughs up the cost and other times it's the zones.

(also, I enjoyed the Roman supply system video you linked - reminded me of Martin Van Creveld's Supplying War that I read many years ago.)

Production only happens way after Consturction, Consumption and SHQ > Zone Deliveries. Both for the SHQ and the zone the rule is:
Only the storage when you hit end turn is availible for the next turns construction.

The SHQ starts the turn by delivering stuff to zones. Workers need food and zones need that and items for production. Then Supplies to units. You then recieve stuff from zones to your SHQ then Reinforcements go out if you have any in your SHQ.

The Cycle starts again from the beginning if the SHQ limited things and not enough LP was there for the say usual 40% for SHQ > Zone at the start. The SHQ only able to use stuff at the start of the next turn I believe if it was delivered.
