FileZilla has potential to be an excellent tool for queuing multiple local file copying operations. This would be beneficial since multiple simultaneous read/write operations are inefficient. FileZilla would simply need to access the local site as both source and destination (by using both the local site and the remote site panels). This functionality has been successfully mimicked by setting the host as ftp://127.0.0.1 (without having to set up any local FTP shares). However, the use of FTP in this process adds an unnecessary layer of processing that slows the transfer (when compared, in my case, to using Finder). For optimal speeds, FileZilla would need to implement an option to access the local filesystem directly for both local site and remote site.
Note: SFTP was also tested, but benchmarked significantly slower than FTP.
