152 (Ulster) Transport Regiment, Royal Corps of Transport and Royal Logistics Corps, is a regiment of the Territorial Army in the United Kingdom.

The regiment was formed in the Royal Corps of Transport in 1967 with two transport squadrons. In the 1980s it was redesignated 152 (Ulster) Ambulance Regiment, and transferred into the Royal Logistics Corps in 1993 as 152 (Ulster) Ambulance Regiment. In 1999 it acquired a third squadron from 157th Transport Regiment and was put under the administrative control of the Army Medical Services. In 2006 it re-roled as a transport regiment and was transferred back to Royal Logistic Corps control, returning an ambulance squadron to 157th Transport Regiment and acquiring a newly raised third transport squadron.
