**Is CBM the same as m3?**

A cubic metre (m3 or CBM) is a just another way of saying a block of space that measures 1m x 1m x 1m, height x width x depth. This calculation gives you a far more accurate indication of volume which translates to how much space you will require on a truck.

**What is the size of CBM?**

In a nutshell, this measurement talks about the area of a space. For 1 CBM, all three dimensions are considered (length, width, and height). This measurement refers to a cube worth of space that’s one meter all around. In essence, it measures the volume of a space.
