Currently there is no option like this on via the API. Noted though, this is a feature that we've had a great deal of interest in, and I'd been in touch with the API team concerning this.
We do have plans to expose local delivery methods and making them publicly accessible API's. I can't offer an ETA just now, but we've acknowledged the interest and we do have it on the roadmap.
Hope this helps clear things up at least - thanks.
