    Communication failure or communication failed

    There is a communication failed between shipping department with our department. They didn't informed us we have a cargo have to be dispatch.

    Is communication failure or communication failed to be used in sentence above?

    'There is a' should be followed by a noun.

    *Not a teacher

    As "There is a"+ noun, "There is a communication" works for me. Then "failed" is its verb.

    My suggestions:
    There is was a communication failed between shipping department with and our department. They didn't informed us we have had a cargo which have had to be dispatched.

    I'm not sure about "shipping department" or "the shipping department" or "a shipping department".

    There was a communication failure between the shipping department and our department. They didn't inform us that there was a cargo which had/needed to be despatched.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
