In Star Trek (2009) Nero orders the captain's of USS Kelvin and Enterprise to come to his ship. He knows that the Federation ship's transporters won't work and therefore orders them to take a shuttle.
Why won't he beam them onboard of his ship?
We know he should have a working transporter as he was able to beam future Spock to Delta Vega.
While mindmelding with Kirk:
He spared my life, for one reason, so that I would know his pain. He beamed me here, so that I could observe his vengeance
