Mariapolis, Manitoba has a single grain elevator, located just outside of town. This elevator has a capacity of 3,780 tonnes and is owned by the Canada Malting Company Ltd, who acquired it in August 2006. It was built by the United Grain Growers (UGG) and opened in 1986. It was owned by Delmar Commodities for a period of time before Canada Malting took it over.

The elevator used to be served by CN (on the CN Carman subdivision) and later the Southern Manitoba Railway, but it has not been served by rail since 2007 and the tracks are gone.
