The Logistic Regiment (Danish: Trænregimentet) is the military logistics regiment of the Royal Danish Army, responsible for army supply and emergency medical personnel. It is based in Aalborg.

Regimental origins can be traced back to 1865 when the first logistic companies were established in the Royal Artillery. It was not until 1880 that there was established a separate exercise department, which still was subject to artillery.
