First off, please don't change the core class. Extend it from an extension or at least copy the file to the local directory.

You can access the quote object in the shipping method to get the product you want.

$quote= Mage::getSingleton('checkout/session')->getQuote();
foreach ($quote->getAllItems() as $item) 
   $product = $item->getProduct(); // the product instance
  • Magel, Thanks for your post. But I need Cart details. As well as I need product qty. Commented Dec 21, 2013 at 10:39
  • var_dump($item->getData()); will show you the data available of the item (such as qty) and you can perform the same getData call on the quote item Commented Dec 21, 2013 at 10:40
$items = Mage::getSingleton('checkout/session')->getQuote()->getAllItems();

foreach($items as $item) {
    foreach($categoryIds as $categoryId)

        $category = Mage::getModel('catalog/category')->load($categoryId);

    echo  "category: ".$category->getName();
    echo '<br/>';
    echo 'ID: '.$item->getProductId().'<br />';
    echo 'Name: '.$item->getName().'<br />';
    echo 'Sku: '.$item->getSku().'<br />';
    echo 'Quantity: '.$item->getQty().'<br />';
    echo 'Price: '.$item->getPrice().'<br />';
    echo "<br />";
