You could leverage Data Loader Command Line for scheduling import.

Refer Step Four: Create the Configuration File where you need configure the network path to put your client supplied fields.

<entry key="dataAccess.name" value="X:\DLTest\In\insertAccounts.csv"/>

During import it will look for this path to find the files.
