This is code i use for getting current session shipping method code:

<?PHP echo Mage::getSingleton('checkout/session')->getQuote()->getShippingAddress()->getShippingMethod(); ?>

But this code is only giving me the current session shipping method code not the shipping title.

How can i get the current session shipping method title ?

If the shipping method is estimated on the cart page or checkout page, you should be able to get the title of the shipping method with: Mage::getSingleton('checkout/session')->getQuote()->getShippingAddress()->getShippingDescription(); Please keep in mind that this will return an empty string if it wasn't chosen on the cart page or checkout.

I added the title on top of the cart. in app/design/frontend/rwd/default/template/checkout/cart.phtml

echo "<pre>" . Mage::getSingleton('checkout/session')->getQuote()->getShippingAddress()->getShippingDescription() . "</pre><br />";
