There is one grain elevator in Cartwright, Manitoba – a former Manitoba Pool elevator built in the mid-1980s. It is now privately owned.

Cartwright was served by the CP Napinka subdivision, but lost its rail service when that subdivision was cut back to near Killarney. Cartwright was originally about 2 miles north of where it is today, but when the CPR built the railway south of the town in 1885, the town was moved.
