    Re: is this sentence correct?

    Our customer is request
    --is requesting--

    the root cause and corrective action for all
    the defective goods.

    --probably don't need the article "the" here. However, it may be required in this sense only to draw specific attention to the defective goods as opposed to the others that passed the customer's inspection.

    Please send us an analysis report
    --redundant. An analysis is a report. Use one word or the other, not both.

    for them
    --of them

    before rework for each shipment
    -- before reworking each shipment


    Now, even grammatically reassembled properly there is still something basically wrong with the result:

    "Our customer is requesting the root cause and corrective action for all the defective goods."

    The customer is probably NOT requesting root causes. The customer is asking to be informed of the root causes, perhaps.
