Best way to display shipping time?

I’m currently working on a module for Australia Post shipping and I would like to display an estimate for how long the shipping will take (based on the API response from the Australia Post shipping calculator) but I’m not sure as to the best place to put it. At the moment I have it being shown in the method name but this means that it’s there every time the name is displayed (such as in invoices), which isn’t really ideal.

What I think would be best is if there’s a way to show this information only when the customer is selecting their shipping method (or getting a quote) and nowhere else. Is there a way to do this in Magento right now?
