We demonstrate the transport of one-dimensional interfaces by a time-dependent magnetic field in the ferromagnetic Heisenberg model. Our analysis is based on the standard adiabatic theorem, supplemented by a numerical analysis based on the recently developed time-dependent Density Matrix Renormalization Group.
