Does each camera have it's own card or do the cards go from camera to camera in a given shoot? If they have their own cards or you can make them have their own cards, you could set up an import preset for each camera. The cost of the cards is insignificant when compared to the cost of speeding up the workflow.

I believe the answer is simple-
1) Open a raw image from Camera-1 in the Develop module.
If it has been Developed- [Reset] the photo back to 'as imported'
2) Set the defined Profile for Camera-1
3) Make this a Default- Menu: Develop > Set Default Settings...
Repeat the three steps for Camera-2
Repeat the three steps for Camera-3
You are setting the Default Import Profile that is specific to each camera, so Lightroom will automatically identify the camera serial number when you import and apply its defined specific profile.
You can also include other settings in each 'Default' such as Noise Reduction, Import Sharpening, Lens Profile (checked),and Chromatic Aberration (checked).
forgot to mention.
Put it down to "Brain Fade" at 1am.
Thanks for the Preferences option.
