During the ice-free months during summer a postal service was operated on the 735 km length of the Northern Dvina, from its origin at Velikii-Ustyug to its termination in the White Sea at Arkhangelsk. in 1906 a rail link with Vyatka was effected down river from Velikii-Ustyug, at Kotlas, which thus became an important junction for postal communication.
