Well Kodak out sourced it's import and distribution in the UK a few years ago to a company called Sangers. The load was too much for them and they went bust. Now a new company formed by people from the old Kodak Import/Distribution division in the UK provides a far more efficient service.

One of Kodaks problems has been that they messed up the restructuring of import/distribution in many parts of the world as a consequence losing sales to competitors.
