Changes in the logistic system of the Polish Armed Forces caused by an increase in the size of the Polish army have brought about the necessity to modernise the system of logistic support of troops operating during peace, crisis and war. One of the recently introduced organisational and functional changes, was the creation of logistic regiments, intended for the execution of tasks previously assigned to Divisional Logistic Support Groups in the area of direct operations in the Division's area of responsibility. The aim of the article is to determine the ability of logistics regiments to take over the role of economic branches in the zone of direct operations in the area of responsibility of the Division. The main research problem is to indicate whether there is a need to entrust logistic regiments with the role of disbursers of third-level budget funds and whether their organisational structure and mutual correlations with elements of the territorial system of logistic support of troops will give the possibility of efficient and effective logistic support of the Division in the area of its responsibility? The concept of integrating formed logistics regiments into the territorial system of military logistic support may be an analogy of the functioning solution of using mobile logistic potential for securing military units (components) by existing logistics brigades. The research in this regard is based on the analysis of source materials and also on expert interviews conducted among officers occupying managerial positions in planning and executive logistic structures of the Polish Armed Forces. Research undertaken in the area of this issue may contribute to the development of a preliminary concept of the use of logistic regiments within the territorial system of army logistic support. On the one hand, this may relieve the currently functioning territorial logistics support system and, on the other hand, prepare logistics regiments for their rational use during crisis and war.
