unless you are using proprietary software, ftp cannot compress/uncompress on the fly ...

if you are able to setup ssh access to the remote server, you can ...
 cd /localdir; tar cvf - localfile | ssh user@remoteserver "cd /remotedir; tar xvf -"

An alternate for a compressed file with SSH:-
cd /localdir; cat localfile | ssh user@remoteserver "cd /remotedir; uncompress > targetfile"

Obviously, substitute gunzip for uncompress if that's more appropriate.
