A little correction...
Let's the order would be $1000
The carrier's cost to ship the order would be $100 and 2-5 days

I have more than one shipping method and would like for a specific shipping method to add 1% of the order amount to the total. This is insurance. So the total amount would be 1000 + 100 + 10 = $1110

At the moment I found that taxes can be used for this purpose. But they still have some items that can be improved to satisfy the described case:
1) They should have a type to separate factors (taxes, insurance or something else)
2) There should be a way to bind some factor (tax) to a specific shipping method (e.g, EMS has insurance, but another carrier hasn't)

I hope that will help you to introduce more flexibility to the system.
