Take a look at Mage_Shipping_Model_Rate_Request. If you have several methods, in the collectRates() method of the class that extends Mage_Shipping_Model_Carrier_Abstract you can create an array with method details. Then you can loop through the array:

public function collectRates(Mage_Shipping_Model_Rate_Request $request)
    if (!Mage::getStoreConfig('carriers/'.$carrierCode.'/enabled')) {
        return false;

    $methods = array('method_one'=>array('price'=>some_val,'title'=>some_title,'cost'=>some_cost)...add more methods);

        $finalMethods = Mage::getModel('shipping/rate_result');

       foreach($methods as $item){

        $method = Mage::getModel('shipping/rate_result_method');

    return $finalMethods;

Also take a look at this article: http://coding.smashingmagazine.com/2014/01/15/create-custom-shipping-methods-magento/ (there is a section called "Using Multiple Shipping Methods").

  • Ok take a look at this article also : magentotricks.com/creating-a-customer-magento-shipping-method. You have a rate model: $method = Mage::getModel('shipping/**rate**_result_method'), this line gives you a rate model. Commented Feb 7, 2014 at 20:19

  • You are welcome. Commented Feb 7, 2014 at 20:22
  • This will indeed show multiple options, but will assign same carrierCode.. and it will create multiple radio options with same id. When selecting any shipping option will keep the first option in selection always Commented May 21, 2016 at 11:11
