Sounds like what your trying to do is:

$cartArray[] = array("ItemNumber" => $itemnumber,
                     "Brand"      => $brand,
                     "Quantity"   => $itemqty,
                     "ItemName"   => $itemname);

This will give you:

$cartArray[0]["ItemNumber"] = $itemnumber;
$cartArray[0]["Brand"] = $brand;
$cartArray[0]["Quantity"] = $itemqty;
$cartArray[0]["ItemName"] = $itemname;

Running the very top statement again will give you:

$cartArray[1]["ItemNumber"] = $itemnumber;
$cartArray[1]["Brand"] = $brand;
$cartArray[1]["Quantity"] = $itemqty;
$cartArray[1]["ItemName"] = $itemname;

Note that $cartArray[] = $val is just a short hand way of doing 
array_push($cartArray, $val);
