Two partially ordered monoids S and T are called Morita equivalent if the categories of right S-posets and right T-posets are Pos-equivalent as categories enriched over the category Pos of posets. We give a description of Pos-prodense biposets and prove Morita theorems I, II, and III for partially ordered monoids.
