1. Drop the 'Carrier:' from the start of the shipping method name - it's redundant since we're in the shipping method column.

our developers are currently working on some major updates to the Open Orders screen which will provide some major improvements to level of detail that can be displayed.
Early mockups that I have seen look very promising and I am certain will easily provide what you are seeking here along with a lot more.
For ref I think it is still at least 2 to 3 months away from being implemented and released.
