it is already established that the transporter is a fragile technology, it does not react well to all kinds of interference.

"sir, theres some XYZ! The transporter cant get a lock!" is common in star trek.

It does not need to be a complete shield or force field, interference through dampening or dispersal works too.

Just go watch more star trek and you'll see that beaming stuff isn't the all powerful tool many want it to be.
