There might be a better solution but this should work.

Create a shell script like this (remember to make it executeable):
(sleep 10s && commandtorun) &

Then in the Xfce Setting Manager select Session and Startup. Add a new
startup application by clicking on the add button. Give it a name and
a description. In the command box enter the full path to the script.
Now the given command will be run after the defined delay everytime
you log in.
