FTP transfer security 'data in transit'

We have an internal FTP server that is used to transfer files to an external company for processing. I want to provide some assurances that the transfer is secure. the client software is filezilla. What kinds of checks should be performed to ensure the security of the data in transit, and can this all be reviewed from the FTP server itself?

Is SFTP more secure than FTPS? Or what are the benefits of one over the other, if any?

its more transaction data rather than personal or financially sensitive.
Got it, but you need it secure in transit over FTP. I would still say FTPS is your best bet.
