Gross register tonnage and cubic meters are two different units of measurement that can be used to describe the total volume of an object. Volume itself measures the space or material on the inside of an object like a container, a ship, a building or some other similarly shaped object. Ton registers can be converted to cubic meters in a few seconds with a calculator.
