This document describes in great detail about FTP. The major theme is an anonymous FTP server, but you would most likely be setting up a secure ftp server with specific username/password protection. There are many FTP server products from free to almost free, to minor cost. It all depends on your server OS, and how secure you want it to be.

Basicaly, you will just be setting up an FTP server, restricting access to it, and the other company will simply "put" their files onto your server. They can use some automated scripts to "push" the files to you, but it will be the same thing as a "put".

WU-FTPD is one of the most-used for server and client.

WS-FTP Pro is a good commercial package.

Or you could use IIS4 or 5, which is free.  If you're just installing the FTP Server component, it'll be less insecure than a full-blown installation of IIS with the WWW publishing services and SMTP connector.
