These toolboxes work the same way.  You can model flow of goods, planes, passengers, money or whatever from one location to many or from many to one.  The quantity of goods are encoded on the "many" features.  The single feature whether it is the source or destination is just starting or ending point.  The tools names the single location the 

Source and the many locations the Destinations but it works either way.
