What does it mean by "compatible with Thunderbolt 3 with adapter"?

Can I connect it to the new Apple Macbook Air 13" (2018) model to use Thunderbolt 3 speeds with the supplied USB-C cable? If not what additional cable will be required to connect it to the 2018 Macbook Air for Thunderbolt 3 compatibility?

    It’s not clear at all on the advert, I have 2 of these drives and the USB-C cable provided is not Thunderbolt 3 compatible, it basically means that it is Thunderbolt 3 ready if you buy thunderbolt 3 cables to go with it - I purchased a couple of 0.8m Thunderbolt 3 cables from Apple but have never measured the speed! Hope this helps.
